Westport, CT (PRWEB) September 21, 2012
Americas- and EMEA-focused consultancy and executive recruitment firm Leadership Capital Group (LCG) announces the opening of New York metro region office in Mahwah, NJ and the appointment of John V. Jazylo as a Partner in the firm’s CEO/Board, Financial Services and Technology Practices as well as Head of the NY metro office.
Mr. Jazylo has recruited Board members, CEOs, COOs and CIOs and other senior leaders for some of the most recognizable global industry names, such as Liberty Mutual, Ford Motor, General Motors, Honeywell, Cooper Industries, AIG, Michael Baker Corporation, and JPMorgan Chase. He also has assisted private equity and venture capital firms in identifying and recruiting key senior executive talent which has led successful growth outcomes for their portfolio companies.
John added, “Joining LCG was a strategic decision. I wanted to be a part of a collaborative team which operated globally because increasingly my clients want to have a trusted advisor to handle ever increasingly difficult and global searches. With searches conducted in almost 50 countries, the firm is experienced and successful in helping its clients win in the marketplace by identifying and securing global Board and C-level executives to help drive customer success for its clients. While many of the firm’s clients are large renowned organizations, the global boutique model offers the nimbleness and ability to move faster and without the constraints inherent in larger or more bureaucratic organizations often hampered by significant off-limits blockage. I wanted to be associated with a firm which values and places the same high level of excellence in research and delivery that my own clients have come to expect. I am delighted to join my colleague and friend, Marc Lewis, and his partners, in this exciting growth opportunity.”
Leadership Capital Group CEO, Marc Lewis, stated “John brings a wealth of executive search, multi-industry and consulting experience as a trusted advisor for the most critical and sensitive business and human capital challenges. He has unmatched passion for help building companies with the right talent, and his level of diligence and follow through is unparalleled. We are ecstatic that John has joined us and he will be a great addition to our global team.”
Immediately prior to joining Leadership Capital Group, John served as an Executive Vice President of one of the world’s largest retained executive search firms and was previously President, Managing Director and Founder of JVJ Associates, a human resources consulting and executive search and assessment firm. John’s consulting work has focused on organizational performance (assessing teams and managing change), leadership development (coaching and developing leaders), and talent acquisition and management (identifying, attracting, and retaining talent and managing Board and executive succession).
Prior to his work in executive search and human resources consulting, John led NYNEX Development Company as its President and Chief Executive Officer, guiding this multi-unit holding company specializing in network management, customer service, multi-media, computer processing and venture capital.
Before NYNEX, John held senior management positions with American Express Company and Warner Communications (now Time Warner) where he provided general management leadership, held P&L responsibility for transaction processing and electronic distribution products and services. He also has extensive international experience in Europe and the Pacific Rim.
John has authored several treatises on the delivery of financial services to consumers and corporations including co-authoring a textbook on electronic funds transfer. He holds a degree in Economics and is a graduate of Brown University Graduate School of Banking. He also has completed Harvard University’s Advanced Program on Negotiation and Difficult Situations and is a professional certified leadership coach.
