Meera Pandya earned a Hons. B.A. (1999) from the U of T, with a major in Sociology and a minor in Anthropology & History.
Meera has an unusual path for a graduate of the Faculty of Arts & Science. She has 15+ years of experience in finance, accounting and client management, spanning diversified industries: banking, technology and non-profit.
She began her career at a major mutual funds company providing broker and client support, then shifted into Institutional Portfolio Accounting and Fund Accounting. After leaving finance, Meera worked in Major Accounts with a global print technology firm. Leveraging her financial acumen, she moved into Financial Analyst positions with two of Canada's largest non-profit foundations.
At this time, Meera is very excited to be working in a field she knows is her real calling: Executive Recruitment. She's found the perfect career cocktail, allowing her to utilize her people-oriented personality, her educational background, and her past work experiences. Meera focuses on the financial services and real estate sector in Canada and the US.
She strongly believes in actively listening to clients and candidates to develop a true understanding of what they are seeking. She looks forward to being the poster child to illustrate that a winding career path, with many bumps and stops, can still lead to a fulfilling destination.
