Our Team

The hiring process doesn’t have to be full of headaches and heartbreaks. The Bergsma & Laurette Group wants to make each experience with us an enjoyable one – we’re good at what we do, but we also have a lot of fun while we’re doing it.

PAUL BERGSMA

A dynamic and innovative staffing professional, Paul has 20 years of experience working full-time in the staffing and recruiting industry. As the chief matchmaker and captain of our ship, he has the connectivity, flexibility and influence to get companies the staff they need, when they need it! His extensive experience – local to global – encompasses client requirements and innovative placement solutions in industrial/warehouse, call center, administrative, financial, technical/engineering, skilled trades, and IT positions.

Stacey Cameron

Stacey is on a staffing mission. She is leading the people to your jobs. Her attention to detail will ensure she finds the best match for your talent needs as she heads the Temporary and Contractor Staffing business in the Ottawa Valley and beyond. She is the kind of person who sees the glass as half full, and she brings the sunshine with her wherever she goes, leaving behind a trail of Lanark County maple glazed bacon to boot! When’s she’s not being an awesome recruiter, her happy place is at a lake, sitting by the fire with a Bud Light.

Leanne McLenaghan

Leanne attended St. Lawrence College in Kingston, ON where she completed the Advertising & Integrated Marketing Communications program. When she’s not busy building and maintaining relationships with clients and helping to dream up some brilliant ideas in our Marketing department, she’s most likely in the Kitchen baking some delightful treats or plotting her next globetrotting adventure.

Jenn Bronson

Jenn attended Sheridan College where she earned her Associates Degree in Human Resources Management and Services. She is Bergsma & Laurette’s secret (not so secret) weapon. Not only is Jenn an award-winning Senior Executive Recruiter and Certified Human Resources Professional, she always rises to the challenge and puts in 110% into everything that she does. Jenn’s a recruiting warrior, filling positions at every turn.

Anthony Noronha

Anthony has been in the accounting business since 1990 and hasn’t looked back since. He’s an associate member of the Canadian Payroll Association and is working on becoming a Certified Payroll Manager. Anthony is a Bookkeeping wizard, dreaming of numbers by night and keeping Bergsma & Laurette’s finances running smoothly by day. He’s a book balancing, payroll processing extraordinaire, just follow his jovial laugh and you’ll find him working his magic!

Aaron Perras

Welcome to our idea department. When it comes to research, writing, and arithmetic, Aaron is just the person to put it all together. Do you have questions, he will find the answer and cite the sources. Have you seen our B&L Forever rock video? Yeah, he wrote and directed that. Owner of his own boutique writing firm, Perras Ink & Type, this guy doesn’t stop there, he’s always writing. He has a gift for all things creative. You’ll find him taking photos, writing scripts, researching new article ideas and, in general, daydreaming up the perfect creative storm of staffing solutions for our clients.

GREG PARKINSON

Greg is a is a multi-tasking ninja whose life motto seems to be, “Why settle for only doing one thing at a time?” He has spent decades in the automotive industry pairing clients with the best possible products and services to help them work better, faster, longer. Even while juggling multiple priorities, he maintains an exceptional focus on delivering industry-leading customer service that will seamlessly advance your business operations. He also loves designer board games, so please exercise extreme caution around him – if you express any interest in that subject, you will be forcibly dragged to the table for a game of Agricola.

MEL BERGSMA

Mel has a degree in Sociology and criminology from the University of Windsor, and a Counselor Certificate in Addiction Studies from the U of T. Nobody ever sees Mel without a smile on her face. Mel cares passionately about people and uses her experience in counseling to help her to get to know them and ascertain their wants and needs. She loves to meet new people and show them how she can help to improve their lives through a new job or career. As one of the owners, she understands the needs of small businesses just as well as large corporations and gets a sense of satisfaction from helping those around her to find their footing and establish themselves.

NICK LAURETTE

Nick is a work horse. He handles our accounts, and also serves as our WSIB rep and our Joint Health and Safety rep. A seasoned customer service professional, he’s our only Laurette but he does the work of at least two Bergsmas.

DAN BERGSMA

Dan handles all things finance at Bergsma and Laurette. He has extensive experience running the back end for several companies at once. He loves ATVing and crunching numbers, often at the same time. (Note: do not try this at home. You might end up crunching more than just numbers.)

ERIN BERGSMA

Erin is the Client Implementor. All day, she meets and exceeds the high customer-service demands at Bergsma & Laurette. Constantly thinking, ever-improving, and designing methods with related metrics for client-centric, in-house processes, she is optimizing end-to-end service delivery processes. Basically no TPS report ever goes out without a cover letter and she can send you the memo if you need another copy? Her role and responsibilities are not for the feint of heart. The only thing she can’t do is pick a favourite flavour of ice cream.

JONATHAN BERGSMA

Jon is like Michael Bluth, just trying to keep the whole family together. He loves a lot of things: customer service, management, people, business strategy, business development … business in general. And fishing. He, along with his family, has owned and operated a successful automotive business in Kitchener-Waterloo for over 30 years.
