We used to think the term ‘honcho’ originated from the Spanish language.
Turns out … it doesn’t.
And get this … it actually comes from the Japanese word, ‘hancho’ meaning ‘group leader’!
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
A lot, actually!
Match and Fable is looking for a Head Honcho for one of our steel fabrication clients, located in the Hamilton / Niagara Region.
