In 2008, company founder Marcie Pollack launched the boutique agency Marketers on Demand, as she saw the market’s need to cater to the niche world of Marketing and Creative. It was also the seamless merging of her two passions and areas of expertise: marketing and recruiting.
After majoring in Marketing at Toronto’s Ryerson University, Marcie landed her first job at top ad agency, J Walter Thompson. She dedicated five years to the industry before transitioning into the world of recruiting but it was her love of marketing that blossomed into an area that was virtually untapped—matching Marketing and Creative talent to amazing jobs.
As an owner of previous recruiting firms, Marcie saw that there was an overabundance of generalist staffing agencies and she knew she had the passion and know-how to launch her own specialized boutique recruiting agency where she could get back to her roots and focus on the unique staffing needs of the industry.
“We are very selective about the clients and talent we represent, we only present outstanding talent or we present no one at all,” says Marcie of MoD’s high standards of operation. Marketers on Demand prides itself on listening to their clients’ needs and providing exceptional customer service: “We are all experts in the field and we are always about quality and not quantity.” As the agency grows, she would like to expand the MoD mode of excellence in Marketing and Creative recruiting.
Her involvement in associations like Ad Women of Toronto, CMA and Women of Influence keep her finger on the pulse of the marketing community and her boutique style agency keeps her focus on the clients. With 20 years of combined marketing and recruiting experience, her name is synonymous with top marketing careers in the industry. Marcie’s knowledge of both industries is second to none and so is her list of stellar clients and talent.
