Our Team

Kevin Hamann 

Kevin has 19 years experience as a Recruiter, Account Executive, Professional Services Manager and VP of Sales in staffing and recruiting.

Throughout his career as a Professional Search Consultant he has recruited roles of all levels and many different disciplines.

Having hired hundreds of professionals within the recruiting industry and thousands more individuals directly placed into management, business development, sales, marketing, accounting, finance, software development,and information technology he has learned that not all placements are equal and that hiring the right personality type for your role can really drive your business forward and the wrong placement can be a costly exercise.

These experiences have been coalesced into Pivot's interviewing and testing practices to provide client companies with the direct placements they need and deserve.

Kevin has a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Carleton University. Kevin spends a lot of his free time as a volunteer soccer coach.

Courtney Smith

Courtney has 12 years experience as a Recruiter, Account Executive, Marketing Director and Director of Business Operations in staffing and recruiting.

His entire career in staffing has focused on the pursuit of answering the question Why.

"Why would a company want to use our staffing services?"
"Why would a candidate be interested in this career opportunity?"
"Why would a client or candidate choose to do business with us over our competitors?"
"Why do I do what I do?"

To understand the Why is to understand the true motivation/s behind decision making.  It is through this lens that Courtney has built market-driven sourcing strategies and systematic business processes for hiring top talent for start ups to fortune 100's.   

These experiences have led to the creation of Pivot's performance based interviewing process which qualifies and quantifies high potential, high performing, and highly engaged candidates.

Courtney has a Bachelor of Kinesiology Degree from McMaster University. He is a sports and outdoor enthusiast and keeps in game form by chasing his two young children around.
