Jim McGregor

Executive Recruiter | Lighting | ESCOs

Jim joined Egret Consulting in 2020 following 2 years as a recruiter in the financial industry. Prior to that Jim had a 30-year career in Finance, ultimately as a CFO, on 2 continents for international logistics companies. As a CFO he was responsible for Finance, Admin, HR and IT team recruiting. Jim has a genuine interest in people development and it was a logical progression for him to move into Executive Search. Jim has a BSc in Economics and is a CGMA (Chartered Global Management Accountant).

“During my career I have grown to appreciate those in recruitment who “Get it right,” and see the process as a way of bringing two equally important elements together: the business with a talent need, and the candidate with the skills and resources to bring value to the role.

Jim is working in the lighting industry with manufacturers and distributors of lighting fixtures, lamps and ballasts, lighting controls and LEDs; as well as ESCOs, lighting contractors, etc. Jim recruits for a variety of functional disciplines including sales from regional, national and international sales management; calling on specifiers, contractors, builders, national accounts, showrooms, distributors, OEM’s, etc. to VPs of sales, engineering, operations, industrial designers, product management, marketing, finance to CFO’s, HR, logistics, and more. Jim is also a member of NAILD (National Association of Innovative Lighting Distributors).
