Goudreau Personnel by Swinton excels in customer service by “getting close to the heartbeat” of our customers and satisfying their demands for the most qualified candidates possible. It’s also imperative that we offer a degree of flexibility in our pricing to appeal to both our largest and our smallest customer alike. We will work diligently to be as competitive as possible without sacrificing our quality of service, keeping in mind that “The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

Our operation is lean and efficient. Our focus has not been on creating the “largest” staffing company; it has been on maintaining our reputation as being the “best” staffing company in the region. In 1999, G.W Goudreau Personnel Services Ltd. was nominated & selected by the Windsor Chamber of Commerce for the Business Excellence “Company of the Year” award. We are extremely proud of our accomplishments as a company, and work diligently as a team everyday, to exceed the standards and goals we set out to achieve.

Our Team

Sara R. Swinton


Sara launched her career in the Recruitment & Staffing Industry in late 1995, joining her family business, G.W. Goudreau Personnel Services Ltd. After 15 years of successfully managing the operations and recruitment side of the business, she finally purchased the company in early 2014, soon after changing the name to Goudreau Personnel by Swinton. This rebranding allowed Sara the opportunity to put her signature on her twenty years of dedicated service to the company. In a geographic area where staffing agencies and recruiters are plentiful, her passion for “people” is what drives her company’s success. Sara has been instrumental in transforming the common perception of how “agencies” are perceived from both customers and candidates alike, by conducting her business practices in a “professional, confidential & ethical” fashion. Sara can be found kicking around on the water with her family on their boat and seadoo’s, or found travelling Central & South America to remote diving destinations!

Glenn Swinton

Controller / IT Manager

Glenn can be found at Goudreau Personnel by Swinton in our Finance and Information Technology department, where he has been instrumental in bringing our company to the next level as it pertains to technology. He is responsible for all things numbers and computers at our location. Glenn’s acumen includes successfully launching and operating two of his own businesses, one of which feeds his passion for water and boating. They are both operating today, and continue to allow him the freedom to do what he loves. When he’s not forced to wear his business attire and crunch numbers at Goudreau Personnel, he is found on one of the great lakes towing & salvaging boats or pleasure diving Ontario’s local wrecks.
