“I worked with Cathy on a search for a VP Marketing. She did an exceptional job in finding a talented pool of candidates for us. She managed the process very efficiently, beating our already tight timelines. Many of the candidates complimented Cathy and her team on the process and their professionalism.”
- Stacey Mowbray President North America
“Cathy worked diligently with us to source and place a remarkable VP, Marketing candidate within an aggressive timeline. Not only did she meet the timeline expectations, she also presented a well thought out plan and delivered against what she promised. I would recommend working with her in the future! Thank you again Cathy!”
- Natasha Nakhani Head of Human Resources, Canada & Latin American Development
“I have known Cathy for more than 20 years. In that time period I have partnered with her in three different business including CIM Ltd, Launch Brand Marketing and now Transparent inc. In every case, she has been both a great advisor and supporter of my company brands and strategies while helping me find the best possible executives to join my teams. During that time, both my Launch and CIM companies became one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies, and a Top 100 Employers in Canada. She has an amazing ability to understand the the needs of your business while contrasting your needs and abilities as a leader. As we all know, finding smart, hardworking, skilled executives is really only a small portion of the task. Making sure they fit the organizational culture, the existing leadership team, and knowing what your company really needs versus what I might want, is where I think the magic happens. After 20 years of working with her, I still feel the magic.”
- Mike Smith Incoming ceo at Fleurish
I have known Cathy Preston for over twenty years and have had the pleasure of her support in recruitment both here at Timbercreek and during my prior tenure at Gluskin Sheff. In both organizations she worked on very challenging assignments across a myriad of functions for positions ranging from President to Manager. What impressed me most on each and every one of those occasions is that Cathy listens; she takes the time to understand our culture and help us define or refine our focus on what our needs truly are. Preston Human Capital Group then delivers exceptional candidates in a timely manner by adhering to their proven process while always treating our relationship with respect and integrity. I know they always have our best interests at heart and that they do an excellent job of representing our company in the marketplace – a factor that is very important to me.
Having worked in the Search industry myself I have very exacting standards on who we work with as executive search partners. I would highly recommend Preston Human Capital Group without hesitation.

Executive Director, Human Capital Management at Timbercreek Asset Management
“In the fundraising sector, we’re often looking for hard to find talent, with unique skills sets that make our searches hard to complete. I know that when I engage Cathy in the search, she’ll ensure that she’s absolutely clear about my priorities, she will explore every option, and persist until she finds me my unicorn. Cathy is a true partner who cares about her work and the not for profit sector. I always have absolute confidence when Cathy is engaged!”
