Industry Experience

Joe is known around the country for his expertise in the recruiting industry. He has been quoted in Wall Street Journal, Detroit News, LA Times, Automotive News, and Chicago Tribune articles, and has also frequently been called upon by various radio and television networks to speak as an auto industry expert. And we do love hearing him speak, especially with those profound insights of his that come from decades of experience!

Joe began his career in executive search in 1980 with a national organization. He was then president of his own search firm for 20 years prior to becoming a part of the ASG team and imparting his wisdom. (Multiple great minds at work together makes an organization that much stronger, after all!)

He currently is the point person of ASG’s Automotive Practice. During this entire period, his industry specialty has been serving the recruiting requirements of automotive original equipment suppliers.
