Julia Woods spent over 20 years working with global content and communications companies, leading marketing, sales, product development and operations. Her passion for finding and developing leadership teams prompted a strategic career shift to executive search, at which point she joined Russell Reynolds associates as an executive director. As part of their global consumer practice she conducted C-Suite and board-level searches nationally. Eventually, she was selected to run the HR practice in Canada across sectors and her interest in human capital management grew.

Her deep experience in senior corporate roles, couples with a background in executive recruiting, enables her to provide unique consulting services to executive in transition and to those exploring career shifts.

Julia is an active member of Toronto's Verity Club, Up with Women and the Canadian Women's Foundation.
