John Peterson

Managing Director

“If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.” Assuming that statement is true, I’ve never worked a day in my life. Executive search has been the vast majority of my business career and 100% of my business passion. “I love the business of business” and the dynamics of strategizing with clients to define a key individual who will help achieve their targeted goals. Overlaying the subtleties and intangibles in finding that individual is what keeps me up at night and gets me up in the morning. Notwithstanding the hundreds of assignments I have worked on, or the numerous clients I have had the privilege of consulting with, the next assignment is the one I look forward to the most.

John has nearly 40 years of executive search experience as a partner with Korn/Ferry International and, prior to being a co-founder of Greger/Peterson Associates, Inc., as a Managing Director with Russell Reynolds Associates, heading their Hospitality Practice. He has both an engineering degree and an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh. “As Greger/Peterson Associates merges with AETHOS Consulting Group, a platform is created which will allow us to be an even more valuable partner to our clients.”
