Based in Chicago, he heads the firm’s U.S. Supply Chain Practice, where he draws on deep expertise in recruitment, board succession, and leadership assessment and development.

The people dynamic of the work is energizing. Gaining and applying insights while connecting with others makes this job fun. Every conversation brings an opportunity to sharpen my professional judgment.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, John was Chief Operating Officer of Allied Recreation Group.

Before his business career, John was an Infantry Officer in the United States Marine Corps. He finished his military career in the reserves and retired with the rank of Colonel.
