Proper sourcing of top executive talent is time consuming, detail oriented work. Great executive search firms make the process so much more efficient while dramatically improving the experience for companies and candidates. McDermott & Bull is one of the best.
I had the good fortune to work with McDermott & Bull, building a world-class leadership team at Bendix King. Their strategic counsel, process, professionalism and dedication were instrumental in helping us recruit a number of exceptionally talented leaders over a multi-year period, positioning the company to re-emerge as a potent force in General Aviation in the years to come.

McDermott & Bull (MB): Can you tell us a little bit about mentors that made a difference in your life and career?
Jack Pelton (JP): On the personal front, my dad’s older brother Don Pelton, played a big part in my life when I was in high school. He was a teacher who didn’t have to deal with me every day and, as a result, he was able to step back and really help me see my true potential. From this early experience, I learned to seek out wise council and guidance, personally and professionally.
Later on, I had the great privilege and pleasure of working for legendary aviation industry leader, Pres Henne, recently retired SVP, Programs, Engineering and Testing at General Dynamics (and played critical roles on so many aircraft from the C-17 to the G650). He taught me what I was capable of, loading me up with enormous responsibility, but always with a “catch net” under me, just in case.
I’ve had the good fortune to have terrific mentors all my life. I am working hard to return the favor, paying it forward, as the saying goes, wherever I can.
