Our Story

Husband and wife team Cyril Harris and Ruth Cowan set up what might have been the first independent recruitment shop in Montreal, Canada in 1954.

Cowan’s experience recruiting for global projects in cross business sectors spans over 50 years and in more than 50 countries.

Fast-forward to today. In 1997, Andrew Harris was passed the reins and continued to build on the foundation laid out by his father before him. Andrew solidified the Cowan brand in an international market by opening branches in strategic locations around the world to better serve the global community.
