Paul Cannon

National Business Manager – Industrial/Operations | Toronto

Points of inspiration:  making great friends along the way

With an Executive MBA from Ottawa U, Post Graduate Certification in International Business from Algonquin College and a BA from Carleton, Paul began his career by teaching English in Asia. His business skills brought him back to Canada, where he has enjoyed a non-stop trajectory of success, first in sales with major multi-national organizations, and then to LSG, where he has served our clients and candidates for more than 10 years.

As our Ontario Business Manager for the Industrial segment, Paul covers all senior level sales and management positions including executive leadership. What has brought him the most satisfaction, he says, is placing some incredible talent that have risen through the corporate ranks to very successful careers. Creating those opportunities is challenging work, but Paul insists that recruitment is the most personally rewarding career he has had and he wouldn’t change it for anything.

Testimonials to his customer focus abound – clients and candidates return to him time after time for two simple reasons: they trust him, and he cares. It also helps that he is perhaps the most organized Consultant in our company, a prodigious multi-tasker who gets it right or makes it right.

Dedicated to his wife and 2 amazing children, he is also involved in coaching hockey, playing golf, skiing, boating, and serving up his homemade pizza and special pasta.

“My motto in life: work hard, play hard, have fun.”
