Sectors : Food Services
Meet Mike “Woody” Sherwood, our Executive Recruiter focussed on the Hospitality & Food Services Sector, in his own words:
I grew up in the Hospitality world.
My first job was at Charlie C’s in Thornhill.
I waited on tables and got my start at tending bar, which led to making more money than I could ever have imagined! In the 90’s I was a bartender at Park Avenue in North York, working for a wonderful manager … best boss I ever had … and now my wife Marcie!
This is how my career in Hospitality Industry began to take shape.
Over the past 30 years, I’ve touched virtually every space within the Hospitality business – from Hotels, Restaurants to Stadiums and College and University Campuses, and more!
In that time, I’ve had the pleasure of working for many great companies including Molson’s, Aramark Canada, The Air Canada Centre, Nellas Canada.
I joined AIP in 2017 to develop the Foodservice and CPG verticals. Like my associates at AIP I gained first-hand experience in recruitment being the ‘client’ and ‘candidate’ during my extensive career ranging from bussing tables all the way up to balancing the budget at the C-Suite level. Throughout my career I have sourced, vetted and managed industry professionals, and I believe an expert in knowing what it takes to find people who will not only build the business; but also, protect and foster the culture of the company itself. I know where to find the best candidates – because I have been one! Together with my esteemed colleague Kevin Hulbert we manage all things Food here at AIP, and look forward to supporting your search process.
