On June 2 I will have been in Executive search twenty years.  Twenty years is a long time to do anything, especially being a “headhunter”.  I hate that term by the way. Like most careers, it found me, I didn’t find it.  I was working for a women’s clothing company out of North Carolina when […]

Standing on the Edge of Tomorrow

  The picture with this story is of me standing on the edge of a skyscraper for a film we just completed.  Somehow it feels metaphoric to life and business today. This year marks my twentieth year in Executive search and my thirteenth year as the President of ERG. As I relax having my morning […]
