Featured background for JMJ Personnel

Jay Greenspan co-founded JMJ in 1987. Since then, his work has taken him to more than 60 countries, delivering JMJ’s management methodology under vastly differing multicultural circumstances. Jay has worked with many of the world’s largest companies, including Intel, BP, Jacobs Engineering, Anglo American, Chevron, Skanska, Rio Tinto, and Boeing.

In consulting, Jay’s strength derives from a deep commitment to the success of companies and individuals who are themselves dedicated to exceptional performance. He has a deep understanding of the challenges these corporations face and the role senior managers play in leading them. A prime area of his work is directly supporting senior executives in building their organizations and leadership teams to fulfill the promise and possibility of their company. Jay considers his long-term relationships with CEOs and company presidents around the world to be one of the most fulfilling aspects of his consulting career.  He currently chairs a CEO Forum for 18 US-based construction firms who share best practices with one another.

Jay has been instrumental in developing JMJ’s approaches and proving them in the workplace. As a driving force in the development of the Incident and Injury-Free™ (IIF™) safety approach, he has delivered in chemical plants, construction sites, computer chip plants, mining operations, off-shore drilling rigs, and numerous other locales. He also pioneered JMJ’s approach to supporting major capital project execution to achieve benchmark performance in cost, schedule, and quality.

Prior to creating JMJ, Jay was COO of The Hunger Project, an NGO committed to the sustainable end of hunger, with a core focus on the empowerment of women. Jay’s first career was as a teacher and then principal at an inner-city high school in America.
