Gregg Lehman, Senior Consultant
How does your personal mission serve SIMA Partners clients?
I have a passion for working with businesses and executives in both public and private companies. While a good business plan is important, having the right team in place to execute the plan is imperative. As a CEO over the past 30 years, I want to assist companies to find the best possible candidate for their executive team to grow revenue and profitability, which ensures creating shareholder value.
