ABOUT THE MASON GROUP

The Mason Group is a leading recruitment agency that specializes in the recruitment and placement of accounting, finance and banking professionals in permanent or contract positions across the Greater Toronto and Vancouver Areas, for all levels from Financial Analyst to CFO.

The firm was founded in 2007 by Mitch Goldstein who wanted to create a specialized accounting and finance recruitment agency formed by a team of seasoned recruiters with accounting backgrounds. His belief in the ideas of “It Takes One to Know One” and “It Takes Tenure to Know How” remains the key to The Mason Group's winning approach and helps our clients reach higher levels of success.

Operating with integrity and respect, committed to excellence and dedicated to teamwork, The Mason Group has grown to become one of the most trusted and experienced accounting and finance recruitment agencies in the industry.
