Pekarsky & Co. and Creative Coaching Strike Innovative Partnership

February 1, 2019

Pekarsky & Co., an award-winning executive search firm based in Calgary, and Creative Coaching, Calgary’s leading executive coaching and leadership development firm, are delighted to announce an innovative strategic partnership. Through this unique collaboration, each firm will continue to serve its clientele with the professionalism, discretion and dedication with which our clients have become accustomed, yet each will now be able to offer their respective clientele a much deeper and broader suite of services.


This chosen alliance will allow each firm to do what it does best. In the case of the Pekarsky & Co. that means expertly executing on complex executive search mandates for organizations large and small, public and private, global and local. For Creative Coaching it means continuing to support and enable goal-oriented leaders and organizations to achieve their full potential by finding clarity, enhancing awareness and turning challenges into opportunities that produce new and exciting results.


The two firms will continue to operate entirely separately, maintaining their own unique brands, websites, processes and personalities and ensuring the utmost discretion within the four walls of each firm. But when the opportunity arises, and it makes sense for all involved, each firm will be able to confidently refer the other, and at the end of the day, it’s our clients who will be better for it.


This alliance couples decades of executive search and leadership development together in an innovative, made-in-Alberta fashion, delivering best practices from across each industry and doing so with the sensibility, approachability and professionalism, that allows each firm to do what it does best. As two independent, highly-regarded and specialized firms, we are now better positioned than ever to strategically complement each other while simultaneously being better equipped to serve the business community we hold near and dear.


We are often asked by clients about our capacity in the area of leadership assessment and executive coaching however, we prefer to excel in the area we are best known for which is executive search. We find that the executive search firms who bring this coaching and assessment piece in house without proper accreditation or training invite unintended consequences. In light of offering our clients access to executive coaching and leadership assessment services, to remain true to our strengths and value, we have created an unique and preferred partnership between Pekarsky & Co. and Creative Coaching. Through this strategic alliance we know our clients will be in good hands when it comes to coaching of their people, developing their leaders and facilitating a number of leadership and career assessments, to support desired development, as requested by our clients.
