About David Aplin Group

In 1975, founder and Chairman of the Board, David Aplin, set out to fill the hiring void for mid-level professionals in Western Canada by starting his own consulting firm. “I grew up in a family that always had small businesses,” says Dave. After moving his family from Ontario to Alberta and looking for work, Dave reflects, “It became evident that there weren’t a lot of mid-level recruiting companies in Edmonton in ’75, so we decided to start one.” After making a few placements and adding 3 recruiters to the Aplin team by the end of year one, Dave knew he wanted to build something special. To do that, a unique culture was needed to succeed. "Right from the get-go we tried to make it feel like a family business, and it is a family business." says Dave. Successor to his father, David, Jeff Aplin assumed leadership in 2010. Today, Jeff continues to build on the tradition of excellence in his family roots by providing Aplin clients with the strongest talent and providing Aplin candidates with great career opportunities. David Aplin Group is now recognized as one of Canada’s most accomplished recruiting firms.
