"Transformation means change; to embrace innovation and be the next generation that others envy. This requires today’s executive to be highly intelligent, a strategic thinker, disciplined, and a composed leader through the noise."

Backed with twenty years of executive search experience, Lenny’s practice focuses on the technology and business services industry across CEO, Board of Director and senior-level executive assignments. Digital transformation and strategic market development are central themes to many of Lenny’s searches. From strategic vision to product/offering development to the go-to-market commercialization and sales execution, Lenny is a trusted advisor helping senior leadership teams clearly identify the right talent profiles and then recruit the A-players. As a champion of executive assessment, Lenny also emphasizes cultural fit along with skills and experience, resulting in 90% of his successful candidates still with those organizations five (5) years later.

Lenny has also developed one of the premier Financial Officer practices in the industry, with clients spanning large public companies to private equity-backed businesses, and ranging from turnaround situations to consolidations and emerging growth businesses.

Lenny joined ON Partners from Russell Reynolds, where he was a Managing Director in the technology practice for 11 years. He led the Software and the Systems & Technology Practice at various times, while also spearheading explosive growth of the technology CFO practice.

Lenny received his B.S. in Finance and Economics from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania and his M.B.A. from Northeastern University. He serves on the board of Penn Athletics and is also on the Board of Trustees and Chairman of the Patient Care & Quality Committee at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
