More About JAMES W.


Where did you grow up?

Other than four years in Boulder, Colorado for school, I've lived in Houston my entire life.

What do you love about your work?

The people. I’m fortunate enough to hear so many different stories and perspectives each and every day. Most importantly, I enjoy helping our clients find that individual out there who will positively impact their organization and helping candidates find their dream job, even if they didn’t know it existed!

How did you get into executive search?

Like many, I fell into it and haven't looked back since.

What would you do if you weren't in executive search?

I love food and I like to cook, so in my mind I should run a restaurant.

What do you do for fun?

I enjoy being around friends and family, playing golf and generally doing anything outside, going to concerts and keeping up with Houston sports teams.
