Where does a business go after placing high on OBJ’s fastest-growing companies in back-to-back years? For executive recruitment firm Keynote Group, the answer is Toronto.

The Ottawa-based company announced this week it has opened an office under its Keynote Search banner to serve new and existing clients in the GTA. The firm has named Kevin Kelley as its head of business development in Toronto and added Jayson Siddiqui to its southern Ontario team.

“We have seen a lot of success specifically working with clients in the construction and real estate industries in Toronto and will look to continue growth in that vertical,” stated Keynote co-founder and managing partner Donna Baker, who runs the firm with her husband James Baker.

Keynote Group has been named to OBJ’s annual fastest-growing companies list for the past two years, topping the list in 2018. This past year the company announced three-year revenue growth of nearly 300 per cent.
