Jon Jennings– Founder / Managing Partner
Jon Jennings is Founder and Managing Partner of Jennings Executive Search. He began his career with a boutique recruiting firm, building relationships with C-Level accounting and finance professionals utilizing a research-based approach of study and analysis to best serve his clients. In 2012, Jon took this approach to a larger firm where he worked with several CFOs to build entire accounting departments and gain a large firm perspective in how to build a successful practice.
This experience led to the creation of Jennings Executive Search in April of 2014. Upon founding the company, Jon set out to provide a level of service, creativity, and diligence that traditionally can only be found within select retained firms, all while utilizing a contingent pricing model.
