From my very first weeks at H&S, Gerry was an amazing and energetic mentor. When he and Ted Jadick set me up for my first CEO shootout, win, and wildly successful search in 1996, Gerry was there to coach and advise. I never made a visit to the NYC office without benefiting from a quick visit with “Mr. Executive Search”. After completing over 100 CEO placements myself, I realized just how much Gerry had so graciously shared with me, and I always tried to be such a mentor myself (but never as successfully as Gerry!). He leaves a remarkable and enduring legacy not just to those of us lucky enough to be his H&S partners, but to our entire profession, and to an untold number of our great clients in the marketplace!
