JB HOMER Retained Executive Search, specializing in executive search for technology and operations talent in a global market

"We have not worked with another recruiter who knows their industry better"


Our clients continue to place a high value on the senior technology and operations executives we place. In fact, since 2001, over 89% of the candidates we have identified are still with their companies and over 13% have stepped into roles of increased responsibilities - a testimonial in itself to our results-oriented approach.

"JB Homer was an awesome partner for our search to identify our National VP, Information Security, IT Risk, Compliance and Disaster Recovery. Thanks again Judy!!"
Eric Dorne, SVP and Chief Information Officer,
United Natural Foods Inc. (UNFI)

"It has been my pleasure to work with Judy and the JB Homer team as both a candidate and a client. JB Homer recruited me as the Chief Information Officer for Ascena Retail Group and then successfully recruited a significant portion of my senior IT leadership team -- JB Homer not only hit a home run with placing this team but hit a grand slam, which will give Ascena an even greater competitive advantage as we continue to move forward as a world-class specialty apparel organization."
David Johns, SVP and Chief Information Officer,
Ascena Retail Group

"We are grateful for your spirit and professionalism through the whole journey of placing our Chief Digital Officer. I would love you and your teamís guidance on what you have found most helpful with on-boarding and making new hires successful. I want to put some high quality time into getting this right."
Brady Lum, President, Special Olympics

"I have known Judy Homer for more than a decade now. Judy is an expert in the area of technology executive search coach and consulting and her business is world class. She deeply understands the IT and digital executive talent space and keeps current and abreast of the rapidly changing space of technology, innovation and transformation. She continuously re-invests herself and her practice to meet and exceed the demands of her profession. Judy possesses a high level of integrity, always putting her client's best interest first. She is a very high energy professional with great communication skills and impeccable reputation. Judy had placed CIOs at some top companies and is a high value added partner to any firm that hires her."
Rowena Track, Senior Vice President, Citigroup

"I utilized JB Homer on searches for two key positions. In both cases, I was impressed with the JB Homer people, their process and the candidates they presented. Each member of Judy's team is an experienced recruiter who focuses on different aspects of the candidate. We worked as a team, discussing qualities of the candidates and potential concerns. The group calibrated their selection process based upon my feedback and brought forth well-qualified candidates for selection. As a result, there was never a trail of hit and miss candidates that went on forever, but instead I was presented with a timely short list of qualified individuals from which to select. Bottom line: Both of my hires have worked out exceptionally well and I will use JB Homer again if I have the need for a top executive"
Jon Peters, EVP Logistics and Technology, Phillips-Van Heusen

"I have known and worked with Judy over the last ten years or so. She sets the bar for my measurement of professionalism in Executive Recruiting. She is one of the most insightful and focused recruiters I have ever dealt with. Her research and judgment on the "fit" of an individual for a position is the most thorough I've encountered. If you are looking for an executive recruiter who will convey your position clearly and distinctly and put forward candidates who will be a great fit for your role and organization, Judy is the one. I highly recommend her as a professional and a person."
Wayne Ginion, Managing Director - CTO, Paine Webber

"What can you say about a search firm? They found me a position which I love. But there is so much more to Judy Homer and her team at JB Homer Associates. Judy takes personal interest in each candidate and makes sure the match is perfect for both candidate and employer. Her understanding the client, their needs and culture, were exceptional. Judy's insight provided a great foundation for each level of interview and ultimately was a decisive factor in my selection process. And all this is what you hope, but rarely find, in an executive search firm. But wait, it does not end there. Judy regularly checks back to make sure that mutual expectations are being met long after the date of hire. The fit that Judy foresaw in putting me up for the position is a true priority for her. Judy and her firm are exceptional talents in the search firm business and their commitment to excellence in finding the right matches is greatly appreciated by all involved. I do not hesitate in recommending Judy as a resource for employer or candidate; because I know she will always produce first-rate results."
Michael Higgins, Chief Security Officer, The New York Times

"Working with the JB Homer team was a unique and extremely rewarding experience for me. The end result was that I found a position that was exactly what I was looking for in terms of opportunity, challenge and being in an organization with great people who share the same values as I do. This happened because of the personal emphasis of the recruiting process that exists at JB Homer. They invested their time to understand what motivated me and what my priorities were and made sure those were the right fit for both me and their client. This translated into a shared set of expectations that made me feel right at home during the interviewing process. When the time came to make a decision it was easy and without the usual fear of making a wrong choice. Even after the hiring process was over they kept in touch to make sure the transition was a smooth one. Needless to say, strong friendships were created from this experience that continues to this day."
John Tiglias, Chief Information Officer, Glaceau/Vitamin Water

"Working with JB Homer Associates not only produces the most qualified candidates but offers industry expertise which I find extremely valuable. Their networking capabilities are excellent and service and follow-up impeccable. Having worked with them first as a candidate and now as a client I have the utmost respect and confidence that each assignment will come to a successful conclusion."
Alvi Abuaf, President, CPM Braxis USA
former Partner E&Y and Managing Director Citigroup

"I enjoyed meeting you and your colleagues. Your work, in finding our Chief Information Officer, was not only very professional, but also culminated in several very qualified candidates -- any one of whom could have made a substantial contribution to our efforts here at AUB. I wish you continued success in your work at JB Homer."
Steve Kenney, VP Finance/ CFO, American University of Beirut

"I've used the big-name executive search firms, but after retaining JB Homer to find a CIO for my rapidly expanding business, I now know what personal service, delivery and follow through are all about. Judy Homer and her team really got to know me and my business and the type of technology leader I needed to be successful in our environment. I couldn't be happier with our new CIO."
Tom Sullivan, President, Lumber Liquidators

"Working with JB Homer on our recent CIO search was a breath of fresh air for our firm. In today's world of technology, the "art" of recruiting has been lost, with one exception, JB Homer. JB Homer takes a hands-on personal approach to interviewing us as clients and all prospective candidates. We had some very specific criteria for a CIO that has worked in a fast pace and high transaction firm. Additionally the candidate needed to have both B to C and B to B background with a strong personality to survive in a very entrepreneurial environment. Through JB Homer's detailed, hands on process we ended up with the perfect CIO to lead our efforts for years to come. JB Homer was extremely efficient, well documented, focused on our needs and made sure we only saw the best candidates. Lastly, they are extremely open minded and looked in all industries for the proper person bringing us new thoughts and ideas on how to build our IT organization and platform."
Steve Silverman, Executive Vice President, ArchBrook Laguna

"JB Homer has been great to partner with, both as a potential candidate and as a client firm. They focus on balancing the requirements of the position with the candidate's personal needs - which helps ensure an ideal fit. The result is a great track record in the searches they do for us and a high retention rate."
Anna Ewing, Chief Information Officer, Nasdaq

"Judy and her team are some of the best recruiters in the technology executive space. They know everyone, have incredible rapport with both clients and candidates and develop a deep understanding of the client needs and do a great job of finding perfect matches. I have used them several times and referred them to others as well and been very satisfied. If you are looking for an IT professional, or an executive with financial services background - Judy is one of the best."
Gregor Bailar, Former CIO & Executive Committee Member, Capital One
