About Us

Gateway was founded in 1998 with an initial focus on IT consulting for the insurance industry. Our core objective has always been to implement productivity-enhancing solutions for our clients. However, our business perspective shifted when we realized that employees have a significantly greater impact on productivity than IT alone. We recognize the flaws in the current candidate recruitment and selection practices, leading to lower employee engagement and retention rates, costing companies billions annually.

In response, we have redirected our attention to recruiting for companies across diverse industries in North America. Our approach emphasizes matching the right individuals with your organization, going beyond mere qualifications. With confidence in our process, we offer a 9-month placement guarantee when you choose to partner with us.

Meet Gareth Callaway

President and Founder

Having dedicated over 25 years to building the company, I am passionate about the success of Gateway and our clients. Prior to this journey, I gained invaluable experience as a recruitment manager at Paxus, a leading staffing and recruiting firm in Australia.

As a proud father, I bring meaningful family values into the culture at Gateway, including integrity, responsibility, and community. Additionally, I am a keen rugby fan and have had the privilege of refereeing matches at national tournaments and junior international games.

When I’m not focused on business, you’ll often find me on the golf course.

I joined Gateway in May 2021. I am a graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University with a BBA and a concentration in Accounting. I grew up playing team sports and played on Laurier’s Varsity Men’s Rugby Team. Through these experiences, I have learned the value of teamwork and collaboration. I am excited about bringing on new clients and showcasing the benefits of partnering with our team.
