"Tony Woolgar and Legacy Partners have performed various recruits for Lakeridge Health, including CIO, Director of Strategy and various Finance positions. I have been very pleased with their service and the outcomes. What has impressed me the most is that Legacy/ Tony does not just fill a vacancy. He works hard to get to know the service and how it works. He also tries to ensure that what management is looking for fits with the culture. The best example of this is Finance. Tony not only helped our CFO to recruit 4 positions, but helped her to reorganize the department, and decide what was the appropriate talent to go after. The result was 4 very good recruits."
Kevin Empey, President and CEO, Lakeridge Health

"Tony assisted us in recruiting for a senior Director position with our organization. Where he excelled was bringing forward the diverse perspectives from across the organization as to what people wanted to see in the successful candidate. From listening to what the different positions wanted in this new role, he was able to glean out the key elements required for a candidate to succeed in a diverse new role for our organization. He was well prepared for meetings and certainly helped facilitate the hiring process for us. Having never used a recruiting firm in the past, I would definitely consider using his services for any other senior level role in our organization."

Candidate for Executive Director role

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Tony as a candidate for one of the postings he was managing. Having worked with recruiters in the past and having some negative experiences, I was quickly put at ease within moments of my first contact with Tony. He is certainly not a typical recruiter, and I found his balanced professional and positive personality reassuring. His knowledge and experience is readily evident and invaluable to the recruitment process for both the candidate and the hiring company. As a recruit, I was amazed to see the emphasis Tony put on my career path beyond the position he was recruiting me for. This was very encouraging and I realized quickly that I was in good hands. Throughout the recruitment process, Tony continued to impress me with his tireless efforts to keep me informed. He was so excellent at communicating and addressing my concerns; always giving me ample time to converse.

"Tony's approach was above all of my expectations. He worked with me throughout the process to make sure I was aware of the requirements of the job and I was prepared at every step of the way. I felt that Tony took a personal interest in my career development and he made sure that the role I was considering was in alignment with my career aspirations. Tony treated me with respect, guided and coached me at every step of the way. I was quite impressed when I realized that he was also part of the interview panel. Tony's professional approach made things easy for me to transition to the organization."
