Meet the Toronto Account Executives

Over the last 27 years, FDM has gone from strength to strength, employing more business and technology trainees each year. Once their training is complete, it is up to the account management team to place each talented individual with our clients. We’ve been presenting the faces behind each centre’s account team and this week we are in Toronto.

Sean Batts – Account Director

Where are you from? Croydon, England.

The most fulfilling part of my job is receiving positive feedback from clients regarding the impact that our FDM trainees and consultants have on their projects and culture. I enjoy running, football and I’ve also recently picked up boxing. I’m also an avid Tottenham Hotspurs fan so I try to catch their matches whenever I can and show my support.

Anthony Mariani – Account Director

Where are you from? Montreal, QC.

I enjoy helping young professionals harness their skills and potential while also helping them find fulfilling jobs that jump start their professional careers. I recommend trainees and consultants to learn everything you can and don’t be afraid to try new things or challenge yourself. Taking initiative and stepping outside your comfort zone is the best way to grow and develop.

Kat Turchik –Account Director

Where are you from? Ukraine, but I grew up in Canada and I have been living here for the last 22 years.

I feel inspired daily by how driven and passionate everyone is about helping the next generation of talent begin their careers. Being able to see our consultants move forward in their professional journeys is very rewarding and inspiring. Outside of the office I love building playlists – hip hop and classic rock are my top two genres. I also love to travel. Tulum, Mexico is the last place I fell in love with and I will happily give out recommendations – it’s a total paradise.

Brennen Leslie – Senior Account Executive

Where are you from? I was born in St John’s, NL but grew up in Toronto.

The most enjoyable aspect of being an account executive is having the opportunity to make a positive impact by helping my clients meet their objectives and goals, while also helping recent graduates launch their professional careers. I really enjoy exercising and staying in shape. I always like to be active on my free time – some of my favourite workouts include Crossfit, running, and cycling.

Purvaja Choudhary – Account Executive

Where are you from? Bombay, India 

I enjoy building careers for young talent and building relationships with clients across various industries. When trainees are going out on site I advise them that it is extremely important to go into a new work environment with an open mind for learning. Always try to deliver beyond your job description and carve out your dream job by proving yourself every day.


Joelle McManus – Account Executive

Where are you from? Montreal QC.

Being an Account Executive has been one of the most enjoyable roles I have ever had, as I have the ability to connect with the trainees and watch them grow through their journey. The satisfaction of seeing candidates succeed by launching their careers cannot be expressed in words. I also enjoy bringing people into the organisation and showing how FDM can provide them with the right tools to succeed

Jeffrey Fang –Account Executive

Where are you from? Taichung, Taiwan.

My first month at FDM happened to be during the peak of the FIFA World Cup, and our office held watch-parties with clients and staff every week. Being able to meet and network with hiring managers and executives just one month out of university was truly an amazing and eye-opening experience. I always tell consultants to never be complacent in their current position. Always try to think outside of the box. Don’t be afraid to show your grit and always try to go that extra mile – hard work will be recognised.


Kendra Halman – Account Executive

Where are you from? I was originally born in Ottawa, ON and moved to Oakville, ON when I was seven.

I enjoy the opportunity to challenge myself every day. It feels great being able to achieve the short and long term goals I set for myself. I love the feeling of being able to make an impact and contributing to the growth of FDM. Some of my favourite moments have been the various team building events throughout the year. Dressing up for our summer Casa Loma party, battling the escape room challenge with the recruitment team and zip lining in St. John’s, NL have all been incredible FDM moments.

Ibiye Okaye –Account Executive

Where are you from? Lagos, Nigeria.

I enjoy the opportunity to make a positive impact not just for FDM, but by helping my clients as well as individuals to launch their careers. I also love meeting new people every day and having the opportunity to gain valuable new experiences. You should always aim to be flexible and open to change, as trying new things is the best way to grow. Take the opportunity to learn as much as you can and don’t be afraid to speak up.
