Search, Executive Search in Enterprise Software


From his early childhood in Hamden Connecticut, as a passionate ice hockey player, through college he learned many things. Most relevant to his business are that hard work, effort and fun pay off. He has been know to say, “if you can't have fun doing what you are doing then don’t do it!”In 2005 when Justin was recruited from the E&J Gallo Winery to get into recruiting, he didn’t realize what he was in for. What he did quickly learn was that he loved the fast-paced business of Executive Search, and the ability to talk and get to know as many people as he could. From the time he joined MRI in 2005 he was constantly in the mix and was ranked as the seventh-highest grossing producer in MRI his first year. He helped develop and build their commerce practice which is still a cornerstone of their business today. In December 2011 he decided to leave the group for an opportunity with the industry leader in affiliate marketing, Commission Junction. In his first year, he finished at over 110% of his annual quota. While this was a great performance for a first-year sales manager he realized it wasn’t enough for him. He missed Executive Search so he founded Woodbridge World Wide.Today you can find him with his loyal dog Spot (English Setter) by his side supported by his wife, Cindy, and son, Eli. He is also the host of a Breath of Fresh Career podcast which can be found on Apple Podcast, Spotify, and Google Podcast as well as Youtube. Justin attended Salisbury School in CT and graduated from St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY, and attended The Pennsylvania State University in State College, PA. Justin still enjoys playing Hockey with “the boys,” working out, playing golf, mountain biking, and spending time with his family.
