About Delta Management Group


Canada’s Clean50 prime mover and steward, Delta Management Group, is a twenty three year old boutique search firm with the leading practice in “green collar” / “green professionals” search in Canada, including clean tech, corporate social responsibility and sustainability professionals.

Formed in 1992, Delta has a long track record of building exceptional teams, and working closely with management and stakeholders on a long-term basis as a trusted advisor and true business partner.

The company’s unique value proposition is in its ability to dramatically reduce the number of interviews required to find and land the best available candidate, and to virtually eliminate turnover in the following 12 months.

Delta’s results are pretty spectacular. On average, 50% of the candidates Delta puts forward for a role get hired. Of those hired, over 97% remain in place for over a year, and then the average candidate’s stay with their new employer exceeds 6.5 years.

Based at the Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto, Delta’s team fills executive, executive-director and a variety of individual contributor roles across Canada for a wide variety of major corporations, charities, NGOs and NFPs, and welcome enquiries from potential clients or candidates.  Our NFP / NGO practice offers highly affordable rates to “green” / positive social purpose clients.

Delta’s commitment to sustainability is three tiered:

First, our own commitment to sustainability is demonstrated in our (non) use of materials, our location in the LEED Platinum Evergreen Brickworks building, and our use of Bullfrog Power. We are essentially carbon neutral, purchasing offsets to make up for the fuel we use visiting clients and on air transportation not offset by the trees on our real property.

Second is our commitment to helping our clients improve their sustainability, through identifying absolutely exceptional candidates to help them move more rapidly and effectively towards a more sustainable and lower carbon future.   We don’t feel our collective future – or our client’s future – should rely upon candidates culled from the social media herd, but rather from headhunting those who are truly outstanding and can accelerate progress.

Believing that advocates are a critical part of enhancing our quality of life in Canada, we put our powers to work for good as well, through special and highly affordable rates for “green” / positive social purpose NGOs, NFPs and charities. We encourage such organizations to discuss their needs with us and discover the ways in which executive search can be both affordable and a more effective means of hiring talent – often at a net savings.

And thirdly, Delta created, and now stewards the Canada Clean50 Awards program, to bring together senior executives, solutions oriented leaders and sustainability practitioners from across a broad spectrum of interests and abilities and expertise, to build trust between them and foster enhanced collaboration – and share the inspiration these special people can offer all of us.

Thanks for your interest in Canada’s Clean50 Awards program.  We welcome comments – and especially nominations!
