About Us

IT/IQ Executive Search is a specialized search firm solely focused on IT leadership roles, from director-level to C-suite.

IT/IQ has been focused on making connections with real meaning: bringing together the right people, at the right time – and for the right reasons – since we opened our doors in 2002. We help our partners on both sides of the hiring equation achieve their goals by introducing IT leaders capable of achieving our clients’ strategic business objectives. In short, we help empower business through effective IT leadership.

Our exclusive focus on technology has provided us with the unique opportunity to build a network that has continued to mature and develop over the years, giving us immediate access to top-level IT executives throughout North America. This reach, paired with our strict adherence to the AESC Standards of Excellence, and our thorough search and selection process has propelled IT/IQ to the forefront of the industry.

Our Evolution

West Pacific Consulting Group Managed Services Inc. (WPCG) was founded in 2002, and quickly grew in size and market share, becoming a leading IT recruitment provider across Western Canada.

In 2015, the company rebranded as IT/IQ to align more closely with our exclusive focus on technology recruitment and search services. In late 2019, IT/IQ’s two divisions (IT/IQ Executive Search and IT/IQ Tech Recruiters) expanded nationally with the introduction of offices in Toronto and Calgary. International expansion remains a long-term goal.
