Ronald E. Gerevas

As CEO of Heidrick & Struggles, one of the world’s premier executive search firms, Ron redefined the search industry and set the standards of practice on a global basis. His contributions to professionalism, integrity, and quality in the professional services industry are manifold and, in many cases, are still considered to be the gold standard. Ron’s experience spans a number of leadership positions at the operating level, including one in which he was confirmed by the United States Senate as a Presidential Appointee under President Gerald Ford. In this position, Ron eventually became responsible for the U.S.Federal Volunteer Agency, which included the Peace Corps, among other programs, and 250,000 employees worldwide.  Today, he teaches Career Development in the College of Business at California State University, San Marcos while serving on the University's Foundation Board.  He is an accomplished winemaker and competitive class tri-athlete.
