DSML Serving Canadian Companies

DSML Executive Search is an executive search firm specializing in identifying executive profiles for subsidiaries of Canadian and European companies in the United States.

DSML knows how challenging it is to recruit top talent, especially when there are cultural difference including values, vision, norms, habits, and beliefs within organizations. DSML’s experience of recruiting hundreds of executives for our clients positions us advantageously to find the local managerial talent that Canadian and European companies need to succeed in the USA.

Understanding the challenges faced by foreign companies with ambitious growth plans in the USA, Doug Seville and Myriam Le Cannellier combined their recruitment skills and founded DSML Executive Search. Together, from their main office in Chicago (and second office in Boston) they have built a strong internal team of consultants, and also entered into an alliance with a professional executive search network that provides services in over 30 countries

A graduate of York University in Toronto, Canada, Doug Seville began his career within the Human Resources department at The Hudson’s Bay Company. He was subsequently recruited by a major Human Resources Consulting firm to represent the company in both the SW Ontario and Detroit, MI markets. In 2001 Doug was promoted to manage the firm’s Chicago office. He later opened his own boutique human resources consulting business and, in the Spring of 2007, while engaged in a leadership search for a foreign company with operations in Illinois, Doug met Myriam Le Cannellier, who had developed a strong business recruiting for French companies while she was living in Argentina.
