Meet the Leaders

John Light, Partner

John started his career in accounting with British Gas and Waste Management. He soon recognized his true passions were for executive and retained search. He has since spent over 15 years honing his craft across multiple industries, especially oil & gas, energy, construction, technology and professional services. Whether placing a CEO, data scientist, director or VP, John works to align the key components of each employer and candidate to stack the deck for their success.

Growing up with family working in the oil & gas industry, John developed a genuine curiosity for understanding how businesses thrive whether the marketplace is up or down. He served in a range of capacities from search consultant to SVP of Search Services with national and international firms before launching EvolvingTalentGroup.

The company brings a focused, boutique service to the market that solves talent challenges facing leadership teams. Partnering with select clients feeds his passion – the identification, assessment, attraction and selection of the best talent for his clients’ business needs and culture.

John’s wife and three children keep him hopping with school, sports and the outdoors.
