John Dawson

Regional Manager, Xref North America

John Dawson was part of the team that made the Xref North America dream a reality, helping to launch the Toronto-based office in March 2016 and grow it successfully since. Operating out of Toronto, Canada, the team doubled in size in just seven months after inception, and had made its mark on the local HR industry with several industry event appearances and sponsorships.

With several years’ experience supporting recruitment functions both as an external consultant and internal Talent Acquisition Lead in Toronto, John has a profound understanding of talent acquisition, management and retention challenges and best practices in the North American market. He utilises these expertise in his empathetic dealings with local clients.
