Our Franchising specialty practice is spearheaded by Pat Laforet, one of most experienced recruitment consultants with more than 30 years in the talent business. He has developed a particular niche in a vertical that is underrepresented and with exceptional recruiting hard to find.

Pat has had two stints with Stoakley-Stewart Consultants. In 2006 he was presented with an opportunity to go to Africa and become the Country Manager of a Medical Mission working in the rural areas of Malawi. After 5 years of growth and expansion, Pat and his wife returned to Canada and accepted a Director Level position with Habitat for Humanity Toronto. He returned to re-join the firm in January 2014.

Since then, he has built a successful Franchising recruitment practice and has consistently been a top producer with our firm, year over year.


Stoakley-Stewart Consultants is the “Professional Scout” for your organization. We are committed to presenting only well-qualified candidates for your job vacancies. We won’t waste your time and we will give you feedback on the actual market situation and conditions. In addition to rigorous screening of the candidates, we are able to approach those currently in similar jobs in your industry while maintaining complete confidentiality. We can also engage prospective candidates known to you who you are unable to approach directly.
