John A. Robertson, JD, brings a unique strategic perspective of excellence and top performance to the corporations and leaders he serves. His unique combination of degrees in marketing along with the Socratic Method thinking of a law degree allows him to serve many of the world’s finest organizations.
Mr. Robertson’s business career featured an eclectic career in multiple industries, in which he rose to the top in 5 companies out of an aura of firms in Telcom, Data, Communications, Financial Services (E.F. Hutton & Smith Barney) as well as working in a high-profile executive search firm. Ultimately working on positions up to the C-level including many with dot coms and Silicon Valley, John learned not only the power of connectivity, but of the importance of excellence in corporate culture.
Attending law school later in his career, he was a 2x President of the Christian Legal Society. His great focus and love was in Employment Law which led him to obtaining a certificate in workplace mediation.
Starting with his first job out of college, John received many awards for both service and high achievement. His foundational philosophy is that “Effective Serving is a Transfer of Enthusiasm.” He has lived this out with his enthusiasm and passion for every assignment he has taken on.
While representing a leading retained executive search firm, John found himself in an environment of very high achievers. Within three years he was named # 1 in the firm based on having contributed the highest net profit to the organization. He also achieved the Top 10 both regionally and nationally among a network of over 2,000 executive search consultants.
While John’s real passion lies in participation, he is known among his friends and close colleagues as the guy who you never bet can’t do something. Running 21 marathons after the age of 40, including 5 Boston Marathons and the Athens Marathon in Greece, set him apart as a unique competitor.
Robertson has served his community in local Rotary and Jaycees, board involvement with Chapels of Hope, Lay Witnesses for Christ, SBN and Stephen Baldwin’s Breakthrough Ministries. He has also served on the Vetting Committee of the Barnabas Group & Philanthropic Relations at Global Heart Ministries. John and his wife Irene recently celebrated 37 years of marriage.
“John Robertson is the Human Exclamation Point! He has the unique ability to help people focus on the things that matter and then introduce them to the people that make the biggest impact. Instant Change is something I truly believe in. It comes from matching Incredible Experience with an Incredible Heart and tie it to Focused Action. John represents this in spades. I love John Robertson. Your life will be better for just being around him!”
