ROBERTSON-SURRETTE JOINS FORCES WITH RAY & BERNDSTON TO BECOME CANADA'S LARGEST

Creates largest executive search firm in Canada with coast-to-coast capability


HALIFAX, N.S. - Robertson-Surrette Executive Search, one of the most highly respected executive search practices in Eastern Canada, today announced that it is joining forces with Ray & Berndtson Canada, one of the country's premier executive search firms.

The move creates the largest executive search firm in Canada. Ray & Berndtson Canada will have offices in Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver.

Mark Surrette, President of Robertson-Surrette noted, "There are tremendous synergies between our two organizations. Each of our offices has a leading position in its marketplace and brings to its clients an in-depth local and regional knowledge, a strong national perspective and now the power of a full global search capacity."

"I'm really thrilled for our staff and clients who have been so supportive
over the years. As new battles in the 'War for Talent' break out every day,
we now have the enhanced tools and resources necessary to win that war and
recruit the very best people to our region from around the world," added Mr. Surrette.

"By bringing together our two organizations, we will be able to provide significant benefits to our clients," said Carl Lovas, Chairman of Ray & Berndtson in Canada. "With the addition of Robertson-Surrette's offices in Halifax and Ottawa, we will have coast-to-coast capability and be the only global firm operating in the nation's capital."

"While being the largest Canadian firm will allow us to compete more efficiently and effectively in a global economy, the driving force of our two companies coming together is the desire to create the critical mass in Canada that will enable us to deliver the best possible service to our Canadian clients."
