Meet The Team
Jordan Rees is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Auto Careers Group. After attending Georgian College’s Canadian Automotive Institute (Now Automotive Business School of Canada), Jordan joined the retail world where he excelled in sales, training and management.
In 2012 Jordan joined Auto Careers Group with a mission to provide better talent to great opportunities. Joining the team in Toronto and quickly becoming the top recruiter in Canada, Jordan was asked to open a new location in Calgary and take over the Vancouver office at the same time. Successfully starting an office from scratch and simultaneously growing the Vancouver office, Jordan was asked by then ownership, to return to Toronto as the Chief Operating Officer overseeing the 3 offices as well as the acquisition of another recruiting firm to bring into ACG.
In 2021 Jordan completed the acquisition of the balance of shares and to this day oversees the Canadian operation and USA expansion.
Jordan has developed many strong relationships with dealers, and suppliers in the industry, as well as built the largest automotive database of candidates in North America.

As the Director of Operations at Auto Careers Group, my primary focus is to bring our CEO, Jordan's vision to fruition. I lead by example, fostering growth and development while building a solid infrastructure to support our continued success. I am dedicated to maintaining a culture of clear outcomes, transparency, and accountability within the company.
With a proven track record of success in driving growth in multiple companies, I am proud to say that the passion and drive of the team at Auto Careers Group is unparalleled. I am grateful for the opportunity to work alongside Jordan and the rest of the team, and to be a part of making our vision a reality.
Family is of the utmost importance to me, and I am proud to be a dedicated husband to my beautiful wife and an active father to our two children. I make it a priority to be present and supportive in their lives.

I have an optimistic outlook, and I firmly believe that with hard work, determination and clear goals, anything is achievable. I am a leader that not only sets a positive example but also inspires and guides others to achieve their own goals.
I am the Recruitment Manager at Auto Careers Group. My role is people development. I have a strong passion for facilitation and helping others exceed their goals. A strong company starts with their people and I’m here to lay the foundation.
It has definitely been an exciting journey getting here! I started in retail banking and after 7 years, I needed a change. Automotive was the unique and colourful world I was looking for. I’ve had multiple roles in retail automotive and I’ve learned career journeys are not linear. We are constantly growing and learning new things about ourselves based on our experiences. I love learning about people’s career stories! I have a curious nature of how people came to be (Sociology major being put to good use). Auto Careers Group has been a perfect match for me! I’m here to help others achieve their career goals and take the next step in their career path.
I have recently learned the art of work/life balance. Balance has become the number one attribute of how I live my life in every aspect. I workout to support my love of food, I have both introvert and extrovert tendencies, and I look at the world with both creative and logical rose-coloured lenses. My Marvel superpower is being able to binge an entire tv series in a matter of days. I love to get lost on long walks, either exploring a new city or taking in nature and I’m fascinated by the mysteries of the universe.

Hi, my name is Daniella Nanfara. As an Account Executive at Auto Careers Group, my mission is about connection. I can find, attract, and retain the top talent because I adhere to the necessary time it takes to truly under our candidates. I love connecting them with employers and positions that not only allow them to advance but are the perfect fit for their skill set and personality. I’m so lucky to be in this role and work for Auto Careers Group, as my day-to-day is spent developing long-lasting relationships and playing an impactful role in people’s lives. In or out of the office, I am always finding ways to connect with others.
When I am not working, I prioritize spending time with my family, friends and loved ones, leading a healthy lifestyle and using my creative drive to connect with others through fashion. I love getting dressed up on a Friday night and heading to an exciting new restaurant in Toronto to try new experiences or a long Sunday afternoon walk.
I’m so grateful to be in a career all about connecting, and I hope to connect with you!
As an Account Executive with Auto Careers Group, I pride myself in being able to match top candidates with leading organizations based on a person's skills, experiences and personality traits. Coming from an HR Recruiting background from Sheridan College, I have gained the necessary skills to be able to screen an individual by picking out the best qualities, aligning skills with client's professional needs, and ensuring careers are formed.
Having previously worked in the auto industry for the past 5 years, I have grown my familiarity in different roles to understand the ins and outs of day-to-day functions, as well as creating a vast network of automotive professionals in all levels of positions.
My strong connections allow me to know who to reach out to, making sure I always have a personal connection with my candidates.
When I'm not hard at work, I'm spending my time with my partner watching every horror movie imaginable, watching my son and daughter grow into beautiful people and spending time with friends at our Toronto car club building meaningful friendships with others who share a passion for the auto world.
When you know you're helping others build futures they can be proud of, there's a special kind of happiness that overcomes you. I live for that feeling with each opportunity I get!
