Key Personnel

Melodi de Havelyn, CPC, President & CEO  - Melodi is the original founder of StaffQuest Placement Group Inc. She moved with her family to Nanaimo from Vancouver in 1994. StaffQuest is the result of her vision for a professional, full-service employment agency. She is actively involved as part of the daily client services team, working directly with clients. Because of her 'hands-on' approach and dedication to this company we have built a solid client-base. That client-base continues to grow each and every day fulfilling the vision that began in 1995.


Laura Morrow, Front Office Coordinator  - We are very pleased to welcome Laura as an integral part of the team this year. Laura possesses the perfect blend of experience, creative flair and attention to detail that is required of her role here. She has such a wonderful character and easily engenders trust and confidence to those she interacts with. It was an easy decision to offer her this vital position with StaffQuest directly and we are so happy she accepted!


Douglas Hay, Accounting Officer  - Doug brings an impressive array of financial management and digital marketing experience to the team. Doug is quite an affable person and is simply a joy to work with. Throughout his career, Doug has become a bona-fide triple threat: he is a professional accountant, an entrepreneur and a digital marketing pioneer! He is very generous with his time and StaffQuest happily benefits from his willingness to share his deep knowledge of business systems and the digital marketing arena. We are exceedingly pleased to have Doug with us!
