Matt Schwartz started his executive search firm back in 2003. After looking for his next gig working in a search firm he quickly realized that he could go out on his own. Fifteen years later and growing his firm “one logo at a time” his company is known for bringing “Transformative Talent” into companies.

Matt’s mindset when he first started MJS Exec Search — “Building MJS Search, one logo at a time” — great mindset and helpful for anyone who is looking up the mountain to build a business.

His recruiting firm recruits some big players in the executive space who make anywhere from $500K to $2M in total compensation. He gets the work that must go in when recruiting and helping companies transform their talent. He has worked with some of the biggest brands — Pepsi, Fila, American Express and Groupon.
