Reimer Associates was established in 1997 by Ross Reimer. It was a natural outgrowth of Ross’s tenure at Reimer Express Lines Ltd. where his senior management and ownership experience combined with his skills in recruiting outstanding people. Over the years Ross built his team by carefully selecting exceptional executives from the transportation and supply chain industry.
We concentrate exclusively on recruitment within supply chain, leveraging the extensive industry experience of our seven-member team. Simply put, as drivers of success for numerous transportation and supply chain companies, our team has learned firsthand what kind of skills, experience and personality it takes to fill critical positions. We operate confidentially and effectively from inside the industry.
We are transportation and supply chain industry experts
All of our seven associates gained substantial career experience in the supply chain or transportation industry before joining Reimer Associates as recruiters. Their background gives them – and the entire Reimer team – unprecedented knowledge to satisfy our clients’ recruitment needs. There is simply no substitute for having worked within the industry when seeking to fill industry-related positions. Our experience gives us not only credibility with clients, but also – more importantly – allows us to engage with potential candidates who are otherwise unwilling to speak with recruiters. By contrast, when a recruiter with little transportation knowledge contacts an industry expert, the outcome is rarely successful, and often leaves the potential candidate completely unwilling to engage in any further discussion.
Our intelligent database grows continually
Our database of qualified candidates numbers tens of thousands and grows each and every day. We expand this resource through constant research and headhunting within the industry, using social media, industry associations, personal one-on-one networking, advertising, and responding to numerous referrals that come our way. In addition to working from our database, we identify specific companies to target in every new search, to ensure our clients receive the best possible slate of candidates. Because we stay so close to the pulse of the industry, and our research is fresh and relevant, we fill searches in days instead of weeks or months. That’s a great benefit to our clients.
Our process works for you
Because of our extensive and up-to-date supply chain database, in addition to our laser-like targeting, we can develop a broad list of candidates to be interviewed. Our interviewing and reference-checking skills are well honed and highly professional. Before presenting a candidate to you, we conduct thorough personal interviews that incorporate significant behavioural questioning. We have selected all Reimer associates on the basis of their substantial people skills and their ability to sort through multiple candidates, so they’re highly proficient at developing an outstanding short list. We see each personal interview as an important interaction. And because we have all hired dozens of people in our previous industry careers, we’ve never forgotten the importance that each new person brings to our client’s organization. In addition, our extensive industry knowledge and connections often allow us to reach beyond the supplied references so we can speak candidly with people who are familiar with the candidate. We see our exhaustive reference-checking as the final confirmation or rejection of our short list of candidates.
You can count on us for the long haul
Our reputation for taking our work seriously and delivering outstanding value to our clients is well known within the supply chain industry. We pride ourselves on having developed long-term relationships with some of the industry’s most well-respected companies. We look forward to working with you!
