Career History

2019 - Current

My Next Season was co-founded with the vision of helping companies and individuals with important career transitions and ensuring they happen well. Increasingly, companies are using strategic talent management which is triggering early retirement, movement of leaders to new roles late in their careers, and a concern with engaging and retaining millennials. Our individualized, caring approach demonstrates an understanding of, and respect for, these fragile transitions on both ends of the career continuum.
