Our People.
"Intelligent, enterprising, determined - our people make us what we are."

Here at Elliott Bauer, we have an experienced and talented team. Over the years we have consistently recruited and developed intelligent and driven individuals who are business professionals and consultants, rather than just 'recruiters'. When we work with clients, we always aim to deliver real value for that business - and to do that it's important for our people to understand the company dynamics as much as the recruitment profile.

This is an introduction to some of our key people, including our two co-founders. Importantly, we are not the largest firm in the marketplace - and that is intentional. We are keen to work with a select range of clients, and ensure that our clients receive the very best service.


Cindy Ferrari CEO

Morale is key to productivity in a professional services organisation; and culture drives commercial success. We have a strong sense of both.

Before setting up Elliott Bauer, Cindy was a director in a global recruitment firm, where she spent 10 years providing advisory and search services to organisations. As a member of the international management board, she was also instrumental in directing the company's future. She has wide experience of complex, multifunctional, international recruitment, as well as leading large global change programmes, both turnaround and build. She has developed and managed consulting teams, led training, assessment and behavioural programmes, and conducted everything from the recruitment of whole management teams to the tendering of global contracts. Cindy also holds a BSc from Cambridge.

Cindy has responsibility for all aspects of the firm`s strategy and business performance. Email

Vince Robbins Group MD

No other company has the network, intelligence or personal and open approach that we do. We don`t `deliver recruits`; we help hire the talent that drives business success.

Before setting up Elliott Bauer, Vince spent some eight years acting as MD and Head of Business Development with two PLCs. Here he enjoyed multiple successes across a wide variety of actuarial and financial services recruitment. He believes in the ability of headhunting to affect business performance; and throughout his career he has helped to move large teams, industry figures and emerging talent. Today he is primarily involved in the development and growth of our international network, working with our people and our clients to realise the very real benefits of our approach.

Today, Vince spends the vast majority of his time in our offices around the world, training, developing and stretching our people, and building our international client network. Email

Guillaume Giasson-Morin
Senior Consultant

We take pride in knowing our business at both the local and global level. It's important for us to be able to speak about the broader issues facing our clients while providing insight into who, locally, can help their business succeed.

Guillaume has recently opened up our newest office on the East Coast of Canada. His day to day responsibilities now include running the business operations within Quebec, whilst also maintaining a number of key relationships in other areas of Canada.

Until July 2013 Guillaume was based within our North American office and had proved to be an integral part of our Vancouver branch for the last 5 years. Since joining Elliott Bauer, Guillaume has enjoyed significant success through a strong, developed network of relationships with clients not only across Canada, but also in the US and Bermuda.
