Managing Director

John Jay is the Managing Director of ERI and directs ERI's Emerging Business Search Practice. He has a strong marketing, analytical, strategic planning and general management background, developed by 10 years in industry and 29 years in executive search.

Starting as a Research Analyst for the Wall Street firm of Tucker Anthony & RL Day he proceeded to be Vice President of Marketing for LandVest and CEO of Brenter Sports.

John's executive search experience began in 1975 when he was asked to join Organization Resources, Inc., Boston's oldest national executive search and consulting firm, where he recruited for small to medium sized companies until 1981. At that time he was recruited by Heidrick and Struggles, one of the 3 largest executive search firms in the world, where he served the executive search needs of the fast growth, small to mid-sized Emerging Business marketplace.

In 1987 he was recruited back to ORI as Executive Vice President, with the charter to formalize the Emerging Business Search Practice, now ERI's fastest growing specialty practice. He has done over 300 national searches for emerging and mid-cap companies involved in Technology, Life Sciences and Medical Devices, Manufacturing, Instrumentation and Consumer and Industrial Products, ranging from CEO/COO to Operations and Senior Level Sales, Marketing, Finance and Technical positions as well as Board searches. He became Managing Director of ERI in 2000. He received his BA degree from Williams College.

He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Smaller Business Association of New England.
