To operate our business with integrity and in a professional manner, and to treat all with respect.


Our founder, Anne Whitten, started the company in 1974 as a translation agency. At clients’ ongoing requests for English/French-speaking personnel, the agency was transformed into Toronto’s first dedicated bilingual search firm. Quality, value, and personalized service have always been a cornerstone of the firm, and we remain committed to these principles. Anne retired in 2006 and the agency is now owned by Suzanne Hague.

Suzanne Hague is a graduate of Queen’s University and is well known and respected in the industry. She has over 20 years of business experience, including being General Manager of Anne Whitten Bilingual Recruitment, and National Permanent Placement Manager of a large multinational placement agency. Suzanne adheres to the founding principles of the company. She is accomplished at hiring and mentoring winning teams that are dedicated to serving clients with professionalism and delivering outstanding customer service. Suzanne is committed to providing clients with top talent, and in assisting candidates with career opportunities.
