McCracken Executive Search Inc.
After almost twenty-five (25) years in executive search, Gary has executed successful search assignments for C-level executives and their direct reports, across a broad range of industries and settings. He has recruited senior executives and Board Directors for organizations of every size, including inaugural CEOs and even entire Boards of Directors for newly formed entities. He is genuinely as comfortable – and effective – with young, rapidly changing businesses, as he is with more established companies dealing with team development and succession issues.
Gary’s search practice is restricted to Board, CEO and select “C-suite” mandates.
In his last corporate operating role prior to the executive search industry, Gary was an Executive Vice President with Barclays Bank of Canada, with responsibility for its core, mid-market focused operations, delivered through eleven (11) fully-staffed offices across Canada. Gary also held executive responsibility for Barclays’ industry-leading Real Estate and Equipment Finance Divisions.
In addition to serving on volunteer Boards as a Board Member and Committee Member / Chair, he has enthusiastically participated in their fund-raising campaigns, made direct personal financial contributions and provided pro-bono Board Director search services.
Gary holds an MBA from the Ivey School of Business at Western University, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Economics, also from Western.
