CRFA searching for CEO
Jan. 14, 2009, Toronto – Michael Aronovici, chairman of the
board for the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association (CRFA) announced
today that the association has engaged the recruitment firm of Korn/Ferry
International to undertake the search for the association’s next president.
“Korn/Ferry is recognized as a world leader in executive
recruitment,” said Aronovici. “CRFA’s Succession Planning Committee
reviewed proposals from a number of recruitment firms and we were particularly
impressed by Korn/Ferry’s rigorous approach to the task and the fact that
Jeffrey Rosin, Korn/Ferry’s Canadian President, will assume primary
responsibility for the assignment.”
Aronovici emphasized that Korn/Ferry will be casting a wide
net in its search for a new president and that applications from internal
candidates will be welcome.
“We’re looking for a leader who will be able to capitalize
on the tangible value that outgoing president Doug Needham has contributed to
the association,” says Aronovici. Needham announced his resignation in
late October after 26 years with CRFA and will be leaving the organization at
the end of June.
Enquiries and applications with respect to the CEO position
should be directed to Jeffrey Rosin, President, Canada, Korn/Ferry
