New Partner Appointment: Gregory Dohnt

Nov 2016

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Gregory Dohnt as Partner and Leader of the firm’s Industrial & Infrastructure and Chief Financial Officer practices.

Gregory brings over two decades of experience with listed executive search firms, both in Australia and internationally. He has deep expertise in capital intensive sectors such as utilities, property, manufacturing and infrastructure. He has placed Chairmen, Non-Executive Directors, CEOs and the full range of key functional leadership roles into client organisations. He is recognised as one of the country’s leading CFO search professionals – having placed many hundred CFOs and finance leaders throughout his career. He will also augment our Digital & Technology Officer practice – having placed a number of the leading CIOs and Digital leaders and their teams with prominent ASX listed organisations.

Jason Johnson, Founder and Managing Partner of Johnson commented, “I’m incredibly excited by Gregory’s appointment. He will assist us in building a market leading Industrial & Infrastructure Practice and his CFO search credentials will build on the already strong CFO Practice at Johnson. Gregory is one of the country’s top executive search consultants, and he has an exceptional track record of assisting ASX-listed and foreign multinational companies to connect with the premier leadership they need to transform their organisations, outperform the competition and to achieve their business goals.”

Gregory said, “Executive search, at its very best, is anticipatory of client needs. But even then, who has the courage to truly innovate and adapt? Johnson does, and their success speaks for itself. To find that Jason and I are aligned in our thinking about this is very exciting. Together we feel that we can create a truly differentiated proposition that delivers a higher impact executive search experience for our clients.”

Gregory was born and educated in Australia and holds a Bachelor of Arts with First Class Honours from Monash University in Melbourne.
