from Roxanne Jessome

It is not without sadness that I announce the closing of Peg Moves Inc. as of April 30, 2010.  Effective immediately for all of your hospitality search and recruitment needs please contact Peter Danakas at Watermark Consulting.  Peter is without a doubt the best hospitality recruiter I have ever met or had the privilege of working with.  You can reach Peter at (416) 607-6960 or at peter@watermarkconsulting.ca

For almost 10 years, I have been an executive recruiter in the Hotel and Restaurant industry, and my companies, McInnis Hutchison and Peg Moves, have worked throughout Canada, the United States as well as the Caribbean and Europe.  Our decision to end this decade on a high note is the result of personal decisions made by myself and the other key members of the Peg Moves team.  But there is also some joy and celebration to be found as closing one chapter means the beginning of something new.

Like I followed my passion for the hospitality industry, my other passion has always been the law.  Last year, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Certificate in Immigration Law Policies and Procedures.  I became a member of the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants in 2009 and have decided to become a full-time practicing immigration consultant.  It’s a whole new world but I am truly excited to continue helping people realize their dream of working, studying and/or immigrating to Canada.  My new company name is Join Canada and please look for us at www.joincanada.com in the very near future.  My new email address is roxanne@joincanada.com.

Douglas Harb, my dear partner and friend, is also fulfilling a lifelong dream of moving to Hawaii!  He is currently fulfilling a contract as a Corporate Recruiter with Best Buy Canada (they are so lucky to have him!) but by the turn of next year, he will be ringing in 2011 from the Big Island sipping some fruity and exotic beverage perfectly suited to his new home.  Doug, thank you for all of your creativity, professionalism and support.  It has been my honour to know you and my privilege to have worked with you.  Aloha Doug! 

To all of our clients and candidates, we thank you and we will miss you so very much!  There are not enough words to express our gratitude for the good fortune of having been able to be a part of your business and professional lives.  We wish you continued success and look forward to the next time our paths will cross.

Once again, thank you.  We are sad to say goodbye but happy to begin new phases in our lives and excited about the future.  Our Peg Moves emails will remain active for the next year and we can still be reached at: roxanne@pegmoves.com or douglas@pegmoves.com
Until next time….
