John Everett has 27 years of experience in legal and executive search. While most of his search career was placing executives and senior partners in the financial services and insurance industries, he joined Esquire Inc. in 2020 and transitioned full time into legal search.
One of his most memorable and complex transactions was handling an acquisition consisting of a senior vice president and his group with a book of business of $10,000,000 million to EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants.
In 1994, John joined International Business Consultants and placed more than 100 insurance professionals and executives. In 2001, John created JC Professional Search & Recruiting Services Inc. to facilitate M&A transactions in the Property & Casualty national brokerage market. From 2006 – 2008, he partnered with the American Placement Group and collaborated on several attorney deals within the AM 100 law firms. He was consistently one of the firm’s top producers.
Before his search career, he had a diverse career path. In 1979, while attending California State University, where he received his B.S. (Business Management), John joined the telecommunications company COM SYSTEMS, a long distanced phone reseller. Shortly after, he created JET Network Enterprises, a two-way radio & cellular communications company.
John specializes in placing partners in eight key practice areas: corporate M&A, real estate, intellectual property, complex business litigation, white-collar & securities litigation, data breach/cybersecurity and healthcare.
