A message from Imad Lakkis

Welcome to TAL Group.

To me, TAL Group is all about opportunity. It is a company that values talent, and where accomplishments are applauded. It is a team with high expectations and endless challenges, and constant room for opportunity.

As the co-founder of TAL Group and Head of TAL's Health division, it is my responsibility to oversee the company's lines of business in Canada, the United States, and in Europe. I also supervise Human Resourcing, Strategy Planning and Account Management. During my tenure, I have focused on fostering business models that identify new revenue streams to achieve business objectives and that sustain growth for the organization. At present, TAL Health is respected as the largest and most effective provider of pharmacists in Ontario.

Welcome to TAL Group.

Throughout our company's growth, we have always adhered to a set of values that truly define our culture, and a commitment to our clients and candidates. TAL Group invests in its people and supports and encourages them to achieve their full potential. Corporate culture flows from management downward and outward, and we value teamwork, client service, respect and professional excellence.

As the co-founder of TAL Group and Head of TAL's Technology Division, my role is directing all national and international operations of the multi-million dollar business. I presently maintain executive management responsibility for strategic planning. My team of 40+ employees all share a singular focus—providing TAL's clients and candidates with the best, most customized recruitment solution possible. I wish you well in your career search and thank you for considering TAL Group.

Angela Hydes

Marketing Manager

Marketing is a 24/7 role, especially in a modern world where social media creates an instant connection with consumers. As TAL Group's Marketing Manager, my responsibility is to respond to the company's branding needs, in whatever capacity is required and as quickly as possible. In an average day, I wear many hats and creativity is my closest ally.

Prior to joining TAL Group, I was part of the Marketing Team for the Walt Disney Company in its Parks & Resorts and Consumer Products divisions. In addition to leaving me covered in pixie dust, this experience also ingrained in me the importance of exceeding consumer expectations. Presently, I am grateful to belong to a company in which both my creativity and analytic skills are valued and each employee is seen as a critical member of the team. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and am always on the lookout to connect with people and craft innovative, valuable messages.

Stephen Perosa

Director of Recruitment

At TAL Group, growth is not just possible, it is actively encouraged. The company has always supported my professional development and encouraged me to reach my full potential. I began my career with TAL as an IT Recruiter, but my passion for resource solutions began the transition to my current role as Director of Recruitment.

In my current position, my responsibilities include creating and implementing hiring processes, performance standards, and client consulting. I have helped to build TAL's large internal database of candidates and clients, and co-authored the company’s Recruiting Handbook. As TAL has grown and expanded, my role has evolved. I truly enjoy the team that I work with and feel very fortunate to have a role that gives me such a sense of achievement.

Outside of work, I enjoy soccer, cottage life and time with my family.

Andrea D'Angelo

Director of Pharmacy Operations

Having worked in a Pharmacy environment for many years, I know first-hand how a successful pharmacy operates.

Over the years, I have placed thousands of quality pharmacy professionals in leading Pharmacies across the country. I bring an extensive background of 9+ years in highly specialized Pharmacy recruitment, in addition to many years working behind the counter. 

My vast knowledge and contacts within the pharmacy industry allow me to quickly identify when candidates have the appropriate skill sets that clients are looking for. With a proven track record of finding candidates for even the most remote locations, my dedication and focus consistently rewards my clients time and time again.


David Shayan

Branch Manager, Vancouver

I am an Executive with a Passion for People. During my 20+ years of full-cycle IT & Pharmacy recruitment experience, I have worked alongside some of most successful and talented Pharmacy and Information Technology professionals in Western Canada.

I have demonstrated industry experience including superior ability to manage multiple searches, talent, deadlines and client expectations. My specialities include talent acquisition, team building and creative problem solving. My proven ability to bridge the gap between technical and non-technical audiences has enabled me to develop and maintain strong client and candidate relationships. I am excited to extend TAL’s recruitment reach in Canada and support a strong team of recruitment professionals from our downtown Vancouver office.

My focus has always been on empowering people, above all else. I surround myself with the best, and work with their talents to meet key deliverables and see them reach their greatest potential.
