April 15, 2021 – ZRG has named Justin Pinchback as chief revenue officer and head of practices. He will report directly to the CEO Larry Hartmann. “We laid out a spec: The dream player came with a great education, a consulting pedigree, and deep exposure to data-driven solutions in the human capital market,” said Mr. Hartmann. “We wanted someone who was an innovative thinker, someone who brought new perspectives to help us grow, a true accelerator to our team, and someone who could help us with diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.”
After completing his MBA at Harvard Business School, where he was a Goldman Sachs Fellow, Mr. Pinchback moved on to Bain & Company, where he focused on private equity diligence, human capital advisory and merger integration for the firm’s clients. While at Bain, he helped the company drive campus and diversity recruitment efforts.
Mr. Pinchback later earned talent leadership roles at top financial services institutions including Citadel and Bridgewater Associates, where he built talent acquisition capabilities and drove innovation. His work has been featured in Harvard Business Review and at global conferences like LinkedIn’s “Talent Connect.” Most recently, Mr. Pinchback served as the chief people officer of a Warburg Pincus-backed logistics brokerage, where he was an advisor to the C-suite on all human capital issues.
“Justin will be responsible for driving revenue across all verticals by installing new practice area capabilities and leading recruitment efforts to expand the base of managing directors and principals,” said Mr. Hartmann. “Strengthening those teams is ultimately about giving our clients the best possible placement results. We’re looking forward to his leadership driving the strategic integration of acquisitions as we continue to grow.”
“I have a passion for solving difficult talent problems, a client-centric mentality, and want to develop industry leading human capital technology, so ZRG provides a great fit,” said Mr. Pinchback. “With the Zi Platform’s ability to provide objective data on candidate fit, instead of a subjective impression, I think we’ll continue to do great things.”
