The Massey Henry story

Massey Henry was created to bring a fresh approach to the traditional field of executive recruitment. We have created practices and processes that are efficient and effective for clients and open and constructive for candidates.

Founder and Managing Partner Michael Henry believes in the power of networks and connections and is a fierce promoter of Canadian talent at home and abroad. His vision was to create a firm that would set a new standard for executive search in Canada and shine a spotlight on Canadian talent. He believes in the power of diversity in all its forms to create strong leadership teams and high impact boards.

Behind the Massey Henry name

No name is more synonymous with ground breakers in Canadian business and culture than the Massey family. Building on early success in agriculture and manufacturing, generations of the Massey family have put an indelible stamp on Canada’s growth and development.

The Rt. Hon. Vincent Massey, the first Canadian-born Governor General of Canada, embodied that legacy. His lifelong dedication to the cultivation of Canada’s cultural fabric led to the creation of integral institutions and programs, including the National Library of Canada, the Canada Council for the Arts, the CBC, Massey College and the Order of Canada.

“The age which we live in is not suited to idle complacency or to pleasant dreams of past greatness.”

The Right Honourable Vincent Massey

Inherent to Massey’s civic leadership was his unwavering belief that extraordinary accomplishments could only be realized by leveraging the strength of people’s potential and talent. This inspires Massey Henry’s commitment to developing transformational Canadian leaders for 21st century business and culture.

Massey Henry founder Michael Henry is the great grandson of Vincent Massey and a director of the Massey Foundation, whose primary purpose is to promote arts and humanities in Canada.
