With over 20 years of experience in Talent Acquisition, Lisa has witnessed the evolution of recruitment from the rolodex of business cards to the utilization of technology and social networking.
With a Bachelors degree from York University, she walked into a Toronto based recruitment agency in search of a “job”. Little did she know that her attempt at finding a “job” marked the beginning of her career. She became so intrigued by her recruiter that she inquired about making her a member of their team. In a matter of days, Lisa was hired and the rest is history!
Her strategic human resources and talent acquisition experience ranges across a variety of industries including financial services, retail and marketing. Lisa’s career has been dedicated to building talent growth strategies inclusive of the planning, design and implementation of centralized talent acquisition teams. From Edward Jones where she was responsible for attracting and selecting financial advisors across Canada; to Walmart where she led the human resource and talent teams through high growth planning and transformation, to Target where she was one of the first hires on the leadership team tasked with designing the talent acquisition framework to support their international expansion into Canada; to Match Marketing Group where she developed their national people strategy.
She is a leader who pushes the boundaries of traditional Talent Acquisition while engaging and inspiring large national teams to love what they do, understand why they are doing it and how to get it done!
Lisa is currently the Vice President of Talent Acquisition with Investors Group.
