John Lawler is CEO of PrimeGenesis, the world’s leading authority and provider of Executive Onboarding and Team Acceleration services, helping leaders and teams accelerate their success during complex transitions – new leaders in new roles, M&A integrations, strategic re-starts and re-organizations.
PrimeGenesis has 12 partners world-wide who focus on developing and implementing 100-day action plans, helping leaders and teams get a head start, manage their message, align their teams around a shared purpose, strategy and actions, deliver early wins, strengthen their organization, & build processes for sustained success.
Whereas 40% of executives fail within 18 months (Heidrick), PrimeGenesis has brought that rate to under 5% -- and, the firm’s largest 10 clients have used PrimeGenesis over 140 times. Repeat clients include medium-large sized enterprises and middle market private equity firms where transitions are characterized by a greater complexity, higher stakes and need for speed.
John has significant leadership experience – as CEO of 3 private equity backed businesses, Group President roles at both LexisNexis and Scantron, and director positions on several middle market boards – leading large and medium-sized organizations to superior results through business and cultural transformation.
