Pete Williams


Pete is originally from the UK where he served in the Royal Navy (RN) before graduating with an Honours Degree in Business from the University of the West of England. Technical recruitment blends well with his business acumen and engineering experience in the RN; and as an immigrant he has worked hard to understand the specific needs of the manufacturing and engineering sectors here in SW Ontario.


Pete’s success in executive search spans 20 years, over 12 here in Ontario. During this time, he has enjoyed a variety of roles such as Executive Recruiter and Recruitment Manager, prior to starting his own successful Consultancy before the formation of the Tandem Recruitment partnership. This partnership allows him to focus his executive search activity on Operational and Engineering Leadership, in addition to Operational and Engineering roles that are functionally specific. This success has been built on providing honest and accurate information to both clients and candidates, enabling knowledge based decision making.


Pete is currently on the Board of the St Thomas Elgin General Hospital (STEGH) where he has the privilege of working with functional experts from the broader community as well as the very best of healthcare executives and practicing clinical professionals.  He believes in developing relationships that provide benefit for all parties involved, be that personal, professional or community focused.
