I established Theonera Inc. in 1998. Using my extensive contacts and industry knowledge, I help companies build excellent teams cost-effectively.
Finding the right employee for a client is a huge challenge and a process that can be full of twists and turns. When I do make the match, it is very satisfying.
If a company doesn’t want to meet with me, I won’t take them as a client. I ultimately become an extension of your company – a value-added counsel upon whom you can rely for your employee needs and long-term growth plans.
This is not what most recruiters do; most recruiters just fill job openings.
What truly excites me about my work is the human side of it. Companies are made up of people and everyone has goals, desires, hopes, ambitions. Work is an essential part of life. If the work is meaningful, it is fulfilling.
I am a member in accredited and recognized professional associations:
- Human Resources Professional Association (HRPA);
- National Personnel Associates (NPA);
- Centacs (Workplace Big 5);
- Institute of Organized Development (IOD), and
Theonera is built on a strong foundation of professional development and an established code of ethics offered by each of these associations.
“I have had the privilege to work with John since we originally connected in 2006, first as a job seeker and then as a resource to help the business I was working for. He holds a high professional standard and is very knowledgeable. John offers a personal service with a focus on the details required for a quality hire that is appreciated by his clients. His approach and his experience allow him to support his clients in a way that stands apart. With the value his services can bring I would recommend John to anyone looking for support with their recruitment or overall talent management goals.“

Our Commitment to Social Responsibility
At Theonera, there exists a belief that today’s generation has a responsibility to care for tomorrow’s world. From climate change to extreme poverty, there is much to be done for the future. The commitment to environmental responsibility starts at the most basic levels. Everything that is done is done with a sustainable future in mind. By using geothermal energy and solar power for our building, the greenhouse gas emissions are zero. By capturing rainwater for the company garden, using tap water for drinking or by making recycling a top priority, the focus is always on a sustainable tomorrow.
Theonera’s philanthropic vision is: global change at a local level. We strongly support Canadian Crossroads International, an organization dedicated to bringing together Canadians and those from the Global South to discover and implement innovative and effective solutions at the indigenous, community level. I am proud to say that Canadian Crossroads has enabled thousands worldwide to live a meaningful life.
