Jonathon’s appointment represents a material step towards achieving our vision of becoming the region’s highest quality board advisory and executive search firm.
Jonathon joins us after a very successful seven years with Korn Ferry where he was one of the highest performing Partners across the region. Most recently, concurrent with a core role as a Senior Partner responsible for Technology, Telecommunications & Security across A/NZ, Jonathon led Korn Ferry’s holistic New Zealand business; the Telecommunications Sector across APAC; and one of Korn Ferry’s largest accounts in the region.
Jonathon has a search career spanning over twenty years. Prior to his time with Korn Ferry, he was a Partner with Odgers Berndtson. Before this he was the Managing Director of the FiveTen Group in Asia and RP International across the Middle East & Africa. Jonathon commenced his search and recruitment career at Morgan Banks/Hudson before following the founders to launch Talent2.
“I have known Jonathon for over twenty years and it is a real coup to have someone of his stature join the firm. As one of the region’s most successful search consultants, he will be a terrific addition to our team, while also bringing a unique level of leadership experience. Jonathon will play a critical role in the leadership of the firm and the refining of our strategy which will be invaluable in supporting the ongoing growth of our firm.” -Jason Johnson - Founder & Managing Partner, Johnson Partners
Jonathon said “I have followed the success of Johnson Partners and am incredibly excited to join the firm. Johnson Partners is the leading independent firm in Australia and has been winning a significant share from global firms for good reason. Their culture, people and performance are market-leading and they have the real advantage of having far fewer off-limits than their larger competitors – enabling them to access the best talent in the market for their clients.”
