Katherine Marr (Duncan), CPA, CAPartner
Accounting and Finance | Permanent Recruitment Division
Katherine Marr (Duncan) is Partner of The Mason Group’s Accounting and Finance Permanent Division in downtown Toronto, and she has the perfect mindset for it.
As she puts it, “Seeing people thrive in new opportunities they would have not otherwise found, or the value added of finding headhunted talent for clients is fantastic. The return on investment speaks for itself. Helping people find the best fit is easy to get behind!”
Katherine began her career as an Associate with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in their Toronto and San Francisco offices. Being a people person, she participated heavily in the on-campus recruiting program while working there. This keen interest and genuine excitement for the recruitment process and career guidance, convinced her to transition full time into the recruitment industry in 2006.
One of Katherine’s biggest strengths is how well she supports candidates through the search process. From resume feedback during the first meeting to how thoroughly she helps them prepare for their client interviews (e.g. how to present themselves, to what to ask and what not to ask), Katherine is fully vested in using her expertise to guide her candidates throughout the process to best set them up for success so they can land their dream job.
She also consistently goes the extra mile for her clients. Katherine has the strategic, analytic and business acumen to quickly grasp her clients’ needs and to deliver the right fit for their long-term solutions. It’s the huge satisfaction of the long-term match that keeps her going. Finding her clients the perfect candidate, and finding candidates their perfect job.
Katherine graduated from Queen’s Commerce with minors in Finance and Accounting in 2003 and she received her CPA, CA designation from PwC in 2006. She is an active supporter of Dress For Success, Camp Oochigeas, and a past volunteer Director for the Muskoka Lakes Association.
She is passionate about her two young children, husband, friends, wellness, fitness, golf, nature, cottaging and travel. She has lived and worked in London, England; San Francisco, and Los Angeles in addition to Toronto. Katherine has been to every continent and over 30 countries; she’s climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, made it to Everest Base Camp and slept overnight on Antarctica! One day she hopes to go back with her children.
