Venor Expands with New Senior Recruitment Consultant to Lead NL Tech Practice

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA (September 7, 2023) Venor, a premier talent acquisition and human resource solutions provider, announced the appointment of accomplished professional Ryan Thistle as the head of the NL Tech Practice in its St. John’s office. This strategic addition further strengthens Venor’s commitment to delivering exceptional talent acquisition services, expanding its footprint in the vibrant tech industry of Newfoundland and Labrador.

With an established track record, Thistle enjoyed success in the executive search industry in the Eastern US and Toronto markets before aligning his career with Venor to apply his talents in his native province of Newfoundland and Labrador. He has achieved remarkable talent placement and client relationship management results and is excited to lead the NL Tech Practice.

As the NL Tech Practice leader, Thistle will be pivotal in sourcing, attracting, and placing dynamic professionals within the NL tech ecosystem. Thistle developed his expertise in technology services in St. John’s before moving to Toronto to work his way into a leadership role with an international recruitment firm. He then led client engagement at a boutique executive search firm focused on technology leadership hires for private equity clients in the US. Ryan says he is excited to continue building relationships in NL and help companies scale with elusive talent in today’s competitive landscape.

“We are thrilled to welcome Ryan back home to Newfoundland and Labrador as the driving force behind our NL Tech Practice,” says Beverley Evans, Chief Executive Officer of Venor. “Ryan’s track record of connecting exceptional tech talent with innovative, established and startup companies aligns perfectly with our commitment to delivering tailored solutions and industry-leading expertise.”

“Our brand has always focused on relationships, trust, and resourcefulness, and Ryan’s values align with ours. We are excited for our clients to work with Ryan,” adds Craig Coady, Venor Co-founder.

 “I have been working remotely from St. John’s for a couple of years now and have been continually hearing of Venor as I was building my professional contacts here,” says Thistle. “As I learned more about  Venor’s values and entrepreneurial drive, and seeing how much traction they have, the more I knew Venor would be an excellent place to continue my career.”

Venor is a leader in Atlantic Canada’s tech sector recruitment industry. The NL office already serves prominent tech clients, and with Thistle on board, Venor further strengthens its commitment to meeting the growing demands for top-tier tech talent.

“The last three years, in particular, have seen a surge in demand for certain technology skill sets and prompted top talent to be very discerning on new employment opportunities, especially with remote work opening so many doors outside the region,” says Nick Misener, Venor Tech Partner.
