Jon Gerson, President, was first exposed to Executive Solutions while filing resumes after school as a teenager. He first joined the business while on sabbatical from Rutgers University when he was twenty years old and became President in 2013 when Teri, President and Founder, retired after nearly 25 years serving the equipment leasing industry. Since joining the company Jon has spearheaded several strategic enhancements of Executive Solutions’ product offering, including the introduction of proactive out-of-industry recruitment with individualized training in 2013. “Fresh Talent” is the latest execution of Executive Solutions’ commitment to keeping the equipment leasing industry vibrant for years to come.

Jon, like Teri before him, believes Executive Solutions has earned its reputation as a premier national search firm by a continued commitment to focus on long term relationships with clients rather than simply making the next placement. His dedication to forming partnerships enables him to provide unmatched value to clients born of an understanding developed over years of working together. Having worked in executive search within equipment leasing for his entire professional career, Jon can capitalize on deep-rooted relationships within the leasing community and industry specialized knowledge born of two generations with a tradition of excellence.

Jon is an active member of the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association, serving on the Membership Committee since 2013 and on the Service Provider Business Council Steering Committee since 2012. He has also presented several times at the ELFA annual conference. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Rutgers while working full time as an executive recruiter.

Jon lives in Atlanta, GA, with his wife, Jessica, and their menagerie of pets.

Teri Gerson, Founder

Phone: 908.654.1550

Teri Gerson founded Executive Solutions, an industry focused search firm, in 1990 and was its President until her retirement in 2013. Ms. Gerson was an active member of the ELFA, having served on various committees over her career. She has been a presenter at numerous ELFA Annual Conventions. Ms. Gerson has authored many articles, including An Extensive Roadmap to Effective Interviewing for The Journal for Equipment Leasing.

Having begun her career in sales, Ms. Gerson progressed to sales training, sales management, and customer service, establishing and running several businesses along the way. Teri eventually transitioned her skill set into the creation of Executive Solutions. Teri's vision, now executed by Jon Gerson, is that Executive Solutions offer more than just placement services; they also form long-term partnerships with leading corporations, helping define roles for new divisions and implementing strategic plans for future growth. Their consultative interaction with clients extends their contributions far beyond the first critical step of identifying exceptional Talent.

Since retiring in 2013 when she turned the reins of the company over to Jon Gerson, Teri and her husband David live in Maine with their youngest son. Creating a mulit-generational legacy was the realization of a lifetime goal. Teri has been active in working to make the community safe for children in various ways since the 1970's.
