Mélanie Vachon Lapalme

Authentic, passionate, and curious, Mélanie has been part of the Yacoub Elite Search team since 2005. Joining the firm as a researcher, Mélanie has evolved into an executive search expert in the Montreal market, servicing our loyal partners searching for talent in that region.

After more than fifteen years of accompanying leaders and future leaders in strategic career decisions, she formalized her training to become a professional coach. Since then, Mélanie has launched her coaching practice with Yacoub Elite’s partners to perform Hogan Assessments throughout the interview process, as well as continuing to coach the successful candidates thorough their onboarding period.

Internally, Mélanie is responsible for the training and development of the Yacoub Elite Search team. In her coaching practice, she supports and guides professionals in navigating their careers with a focus on nurturing and establishing “future leaders.”
