Ravenhill Smith Search Inc. prides itself on being a full circle consultancy backed by a professional team of experienced recruitment experts, enthusiastic marketing specialists, knowledgeable research analysts and passionate partners that all share one common goal; to place the most qualified candidate that will further the growth, mission and success of your organization. 


While the name has changed, slightly, the vision and focus that has seen our partners, D.Bruce Malcolm & Philip J.W. Smith , find success for their clients over the past two decades has only become stronger.

Ravenhill Smith Search Inc. has a simple vision, to continue to bring the same leadership excellence that has been our hallmark in both the municipal and public sectors, as we continue to meet and answer the growing demand for strong and talented leadership across both sectors.


We are focused on being Ethical Head Hunters™, and have honed our craft in finding and securing the strongest people for your search needs. We are committed to dealing fairly and honestly with both the client and candidate side of any search process that we engage in on your behalf.

Our methodology sees us creating an authentic process that is centred around direct recruitment of candidates, bringing men and women face to face with opportunities that may otherwise have been missed by great candidates who were not actively looking to make a career change.

Our network sees us with a truly extensive reach into the CAMA, ROMA, SUMA, LGAA, AFP, AUMA spaces and allows us close contact with the key leaders within these sectors across Canada and well beyond, and growing everyday.

Our investment into these groups on an annual basis also sees us reaching those who are the up and comers in sector as well and enhancing our ability to source the right voice for the leadership needs of our clients in a timely and successful manner.


We have focused the last two decades on being known as professionals in our field, standing out from among those who would simply advertise your role, by actually doing search in a manner that will bring you the professionals that will fill that role, and do so with excellence.

Our mission is simple:

  1. Make connections with exceptional people who have exceptional connections.

  2. Treat people with the same level of respect and professionalism that you would expect to receive.

  3. Keep confidence with those who have entrusted you with their goals and their desires.

  4. Ensure that you don’t waste peoples time just to add names to your clients short list of potentials.

  5. Respect the value of each relationship you have built along the journey, so you can always knock on that door again.



In our opinion, that’s just the right way to treat people, and we happen to like people a lot.

Instead, we consistently make connections with real people; with exceptional people. We make these connections every single day.  Sometimes we find them, sometimes they find us.

The end result sees us able to engage in searches and reach out to our very real, very personal connections, who in turn, reach out to their connections, and so forth. A shortlist of not only qualified candidates, but unique candidates.  The type of candidates you only find through organic connectivity and mutual respect.
