April 17, 2018 – MCG Partners, a Boston, MA-based talent management and leadership development firm, has expanded with the addition of John Griffith as vice president of consulting services.
In his new role, Mr. Griffith is responsible for driving the growth of the organization, a woman-owned, management consultancy specializing in leadership development, executive coaching, talent management, organizational effectiveness, management training and eLearning solutions. “Because our clients entrust us with the well-being of their leadership, talent and organizations, it’s essential to us that we continue to build a team that reflects the significance of that responsibility,” said Chuck Mollor, managing partner at MCG Partners. “At MCG Partners, we counsel our clients to invest wisely in their most valuable assets – their people – and that’s exactly the kind of investment we’ve made with John, who represents a tremendous new asset to our growing talent pool of advisers.”
An Insider’s Guide to Coaching & Leadership Development
For Hilary Pearl, founding partner of Pearl Associates, improving performance through executive coaching and organizational consulting resides at the center of her work. Executive coaching is now a $1 billion business sector, centered around the notion that all employees can improve their performance quickly if coached properly.
Mr. Griffith was previously with Linkage Inc. where his responsibilities included developing new partnerships. As director of client services, he worked with executives of several global Fortune 500 firms to successfully implement critical projects. These projects ranged from restructuring a 30,000-person supply chain, to CEO succession, to designing a multi-year, multi-million-dollar customized leadership program to develop over 2,000 managers and directors for future leadership roles.
Prior to that, Mr. Griffith founded and ran his own consulting firm for five years, coaching executive leaders. In that role, he honed a two-pronged approach of developing executives to be qualified leaders. Earlier in his career as an industrial engineer, Mr. Griffith managed lean projects and teams of software developers to automate processes.
“I was drawn to MCG Partners’ culture of authenticity and results,” said Mr. Griffith. “I’m looking forward to joining a team that so genuinely lives out day-to-day my shared values of respect, diligence and a data-driven approach that helps people and businesses achieve optimally.”
Seasoned Recruiters Step Out to Focus on Coaching, Strategy and Analytics
Executive search firms and their consultants continue to enter new areas to assist clients that go well beyond recruiting – and sometimes well beyond the firms where they’re working.

The company has worked with over 175 organizations over the last 10 years and has consulted with firms and professionals across industries, from start-ups to the Fortune 500, and not-for-profits.
As an executive coach and strategic advisor, Mr. Mollor specializes in developing leaders, leadership team alignment, creating a leadership culture, managing change, employee engagement and developing a culture of accountability.
