Advance Collaboration, Engagement Within Canadian Finance Community

TORONTO, ON–Global staffing firm Robert Half and its consulting subsidiary, Protiviti, announced today a new business alliance with Financial Executives International Canada (FEI Canada) intended to support Canadian finance leaders and their organizations as National Strategic Principal Partners.

Through shared thought leadership, closer local chapter involvement and career-enhancing content and programming, the relationship will provide relevant information and exposure, advancing the expertise and insight of FEI Canada members across the country.

Partnership elements include FEI Young Luminaries course content and mentor input, Protiviti-hosted webinars exploring the shifting labour model in finance, and executive education support through FEI Canada’s CFO Leadership Beyond Finance Program.

“Robert Half has been a dedicated supporter of FEI Canada since 2005. We are delighted to be continuing our partnership for the next three years with our new National Strategic Principal Partner agreement,” said Catherine Fels-Smith, interim president of FEI Canada.

“The more tools finance leaders have at their disposal, the greater their ability to drive innovation and growth ― for both their company and their industry. With this partnership, executives and their organizations have access to richer resources and more collaborative opportunities within the finance community,” said David King, senior district president of Robert Half. “Together, we aim to arm finance leaders with new ways to adapt to the shifting demands of a global workforce in the digital age and better prepare for the future.”

Added Toronto-based David Dawson, a managing director with global consulting firm Protiviti and country market leader for Canada: “Canadian CFOs and financial executives today face numerous challenges ― from the changing demands of internal and external customers to technology enablement and core reporting optimization. Through this new alliance with FEI Canada, we look forward to sharing our insights to help finance leaders address these challenges on their transformation journey.”
