Our Leadership

Todd Wesson

Todd Wesson, CPC Founder + CEO

Todd has spent his entire career dedicated to executive search, starting in 1998 with a leading Fortune 500 executive search firm. After quickly realizing firsthand the greatest flaw working within a large recruitment organization was also its most critical – access to an already limited pool of top level talent – Todd left northwest Ohio for Chicago and founded Wesson Associates in 1999. The goal of Wesson Associates was to bring forth executive search consultants who are true ambassadors to a single domain, and who earn repeat business by serving candidate and client needs with expertise.

Todd sets the overall strategic direction of the firm overseeing all sales, recruiting, operations and p&l. Todd maintains a wealth of recruitment process knowledge from having filled over 250 executive assignments within the IT industry for Fortune 500, privately held, and equity-backed companies. He is a Certified Personnel Consultant as designated by the National Association of Personnel Services. This certification is recognized as the symbol of excellence in the executive search industry, and is awarded after passing exams in business law, ethics, general business practices, and federal law. Todd received his bachelor’s degree in Communications from the University of Toledo.
