For more than two decades, Debbie has been helping boards and CEOs with their most important people, leadership, and talent decisions.
Based in Los Angeles, Debbie is Group CEO of Jack Hammer, a global group of executive search, talent advisory, and leadership coaching companies. These include: Jack Hammer USA (which focuses on disruptive and emerging industries), Jack Hammer Africa (Africa’s largest executive search boutique), OntheBlock (executive search for blockchain, crypto & NFTs), and Virtual Coaching Partners (an online leadership coaching platform).
Debbie acts as Advisor to CoinFund (a blockchain VC fund) and to Rebel Girls (a girl-empowerment Ed-tech start-up).
Her first book, “InTheFlow – Taking Mindfulness to Work”, was listed as one of the ‘Top 10 Best’ business books, and her newest on, ‘The Living Room Leader – Leadership Lessons for a Hybrid Future’ is a Nr 1 Bestseller on Amazon.
As a serial entrepreneur, she has a somewhat unusual background – in her first career, she was an award-winning contemporary choreographer and dancer….whilst finishing her law degree!
