As a nationally recognized C-level recruiter, I spent 30 years with Spencer Stuart, a leading global executive search firm. Prior to this my early career was in brand marketing on both the manufacturer and agency sides of the business after receiving a Wharton MBA. My executive search clients included leading Fortune 500 companies, private equity portfolio companies, and later stage start-ups. Along the way, I counseled and helped guide the careers of several thousand executives—ranging from CEOs to vice presidents across multiple functions and industries.
After many years in the recruiting trenches, I retired from Spencer Stuart with the goal of helping executives achieve greater professional success through proactive and thoughtful career planning and management. Today, I accomplish this through publishing, seminars, workshops, coaching and mentoring. In my recently released book, The Proactive Executive: A C-Suite Recruiters 5-Step System for Achieving Greater Career Success, I share the best of my 30 years’ worth of observations, learnings and insights about the formation of successful business careers. The book has a high ROTI (Return On Time Invested) and provides practical, straightforward advice and specific actions you can take immediately to improve your career prospects. This book will positively influence the careers of many executives, including yours.
