Hi, I’m Gerry Walsh. I write, speak, and consult on hiring, compensation, performance management, and careers.

Since 1990, I’ve worked with employers from all sectors to hire, manage, and develop their employees.

During this time, I have completed thousands of executive search assignments, covering a spectrum of management and professional positions, and interviewed over 25,000 job candidates.

I have delivered hundreds of workshops and talks on hiring, leadership, career management, and the workplace to diverse audiences, including professional groups, industry associations, not-for-profit organizations, universities, and corporations.

As I transition to a new chapter in my career, my focus will shift toward writing insightful articles and newsletters, producing engaging podcasts, conducting workshops, and selectively taking on consulting assignments.
