Id like to thank Ana and Kevin for the recruiting they have done for me over the past 20 years. Both as recruiters, assisting me to connect with and hire hard to find candidates and as consultants regarding trends and changes in industry. They are my recruitment firm of choice because they are in tune with the industry and take the time to understand my needs. They have a strong network in the Pharma and Biotech world and as a hiring manager they have consistently delivered on challenging searches and produced top candidates in a quick turnaround time.

Building a strong team is amongst the most important deliverables a leader has the responsibility to fulfill. Kevin Maguire, and MMGI, have assisted me in building a number of teams I have had the pleasure to lead. Kevin takes the time to understand what is required for the role, what are the KPI’s and consistently delivers candidates to meet the job's needs. As well, Kevin takes the time to keep me up-to-date on searches, provides reporting, sets up interviews, conducts references and really take the time to get to know the candidates. When I, or a member on my team, is faced with a difficult mandate to fill we turn to MMGI and trust our interests are being best served by MMGI.

Kevin Maguire from MMGI has been an asset to the Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Management and Innovation (PHMI) diploma program at Queen's University. His involvement in vetting CVs and interviewing candidates at the early stages ensured that our industry partners would be eager to onboard admitted students as interns. Kevin came to Queen's and gave students a presentation on how to excel at pharmaceutical company interviews. He then went above and beyond by breaking students up into smaller groups and working on sample interview questions. This format was an excellent way for students to gain further insights from Kevin, but also to provide each other feedback and learn from their own strengths and weaknesses. Students shared unanimously positive feedback about their sessions, and all admitted they felt better prepared for their upcoming interviews. Kevin is a wealth of information and experience, and a pleasure to work with. We look forward to his continued support in current and future offerings of the PHMI program.

Last fall we were in need of a Software Development Leader and had specific and somewhat challenging requirements for this mandate. Most importantly, we were looking for a candidate who would fit well with our existing tight-knit and high performing team. We were not having much success finding qualified candidates, so we reached out to Kevin at MMGI to help.
Kevin was immediately focused on understanding what we needed, including the softer aspects beyond the job description, and he uncovered some very strong candidates very quickly. It's clear that he understands this space very well and has a deep network that he can mine for the right talent. It was a tough search because one of the criteria was to find a manager who was also interested in coding and development (the "player-coach").
As we are a small and developing company, Kevin effectively marketed our culture and growth potential to candidates, enabling us to be competitive and attract the best that Toronto had to offer. In the final analysis, all candidates presented were well qualified allowing us to choose and hire the candidate who was the best fit for the team and Perimeter Medical Imaging's developing needs. As we continue to grow, it is reassuring to know that we have a recruiter that we can count on for those important and tough to fill roles.
