President and Founder, John Tressler, officially began his recruiting career in 2004. John spent a number of years at a larger firm, where he rose to the rank of Vice President and led a team which was one of the most successful in the firm’s history. During the course of his time at the larger firm, John realized that he could better serve his clients and candidates if he could create a smaller, niche-based firm that was able to be much more nimble and flexible than the larger recruiting companies.
In 2009, John founded Mountain management Group with the help of his longtime associate and team member, Joe Srebalus. John and Joe shared a vision and decided it was time they put those shared principles to work. It was difficult starting from scratch but after much time, sacrifice, and hard work, they were able to build a firm and a core team which has been very successful and has gained a reputation as one of the best and most trusted search firms in the nation.
John grew up in Southwestern Pennsylvania where he enjoyed skiing, fishing, whitewater rafting and, pretty much, anything in the outdoors. He holds both a BS and a BA from the University of Pittsburgh. John moved to North Carolina in 2003 and lives in Black Mountain with his two beautiful daughters. He is an avid sports fan and, although, he now calls North Carolina home, he still maintains his loyalty to all teams Pittsburgh.
John considers MMG a part of his life and family. He takes great pride in maintaining it’s reputation and making sure that each associate cares just as much as he does.
