We’re proud of the trust our clients have in us and our work.

Gord Griffiths certainly has had a significant impact on my career. We have worked together four times – with Quebecor, St. Joseph, Pareto and Cenveo.  Along the way I have learned a number of management lessons from Gord – keep it simple, focus on your people, and lead with a little humour.

Even when the going was tough you knew that Gord had your back and was invested in your success – I’ll always be grateful to call him a colleague, mentor, and a friend.

We are so pleased with CFR’s talent recruitment division. We had two very difficult positions to fill and after several non-successful weeks and hundreds of dollars spent on recruitment platforms, we asked CFR to help and within a month they filled both positions for us. They knew exactly what we were looking for, did not waste our time with unqualified candidates and the entire process was an absolute joy. We will definitely be using them again.

I have known Gord Griffiths for over 60 years. We attended public school together and our parents were friends. I suspect Gord first became interested in Print as a young man observing our family business, Thompson Printing, founded over 65 years ago in Paris, Ontario.

The Print Industry is a small world and as it happens Gord’s partner Bob Dale, taught our son Jamie who graduated from the Print Program at Toronto Metropolitan University.

When Gord, as a young man, left our little town and went out into the world to find his way, he landed in Owen Sound for his first job at RBW. It came as no surprise that it was not many years before he was President of Canada’s largest Print Company, Quebecor. Gord’s career has been wide and varied and in spite of people not always believing he could do it, he has succeeded with skill, attitude, integrity and hard work while helping everyone and not ever forgetting his roots.

There is no question that Gordon Griffiths vast experience in the Print Industry will be an asset to anyone using the services of Connecting for Results.
