The Difference


Johnson is a next generation consulting firm working in Board Search, Executive Search, Leadership Succession and Growth Solutions. We connect the world’s top organisations with the premier leadership they need to transform their organisations, outperform the competition and achieve their business goals.

The firm was founded by Jason Johnson, one of the region’s most successful and influential executive search consultants, with a focus on a new client-inspired model that will transform the 60-year-old executive search industry. The key differentiators of the firm include:

Partnership: Johnson focuses on developing deep, impactful and trusted relationships with organisations seeking a similar non-transactional relationship. We recognise that this requires best in class delivery and bespoke process, IP and services designed on a case by case basis for each individual engagement.

Performance: Johnson was created with one paramount objective – to deliver a faster, higher impact executive search experience designed to meet our clients’ unique needs. Our consultants have a 98% placement rate, 100% stick rate and conclude searches within 80 days – which is twice as fast as the industry norm.

Technology and innovation: We have developed a number of market leading processes and embraced cutting edge, cloud-based technologies that will enable us to better serve you. These provide tremendous efficiencies and enable our consultants and clients to access all relevant assignment information anywhere, at any time.

Experience: We have assembled a unique team comprising some of the industry’s leading consultants, who are joined by some of our profession’s newest entrants that provide a fresh and new perspective on what we do.

Global connectivity: As a new firm we have virtually no off-limits and can access the best talent globally. Our reach is augmented through alliances with several of the world's leading independent search firms.
