Les opened the doors to Berglass + Associates in 1990 with the goal of building a future-thinking, responsive firm that would lead the charge in hiring contemporary executives for the consumer goods and retail industries. Les’ greatest strength is his ability to anticipate change – and respond to it. Berglass + Associates was the first firm to identify many of the defining characteristics seen in retail today – and was the first to understand what type of talent would succeed in this very different universe. He defines his company’s success by the ability to place executives who can increase shareholder value.
Under Les’ leadership, Berglass + Associates has become one of the most effective and well-respected search firms in the market today.
