Jack Bondurant


Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It is courage that counts.

— John Wooden

The Translator

Jack is known as “The Translator” around Acertitude for his fluency in Spanish, but even more so for his uncanny ability to translate client needs into actionable research. In the process of a search he can’t help but transform the days of everyone he encounters, from client to intern, with his positively contagious attitude — even over a phone call. The explanation for his humble yet driven spirit just might be his southern roots as an Atlanta native. He also renders his skill for making people better useful as a volunteer at the Shepherd Center, where he raises awareness and funds to support individuals recovering from life-changing spinal injuries.

As an associate in Acertitude’s Healthcare and Life Sciences practice, Jack helps execute board, chief executive officer, and c-suite searches for private equity-backed, private, and public enterprises. Based in New York, he supports our team with diligent candidate identification, customized search strategies, and valuable market insights. Applying his remarkable listening skills, Jack also thoroughly screens candidates to put forth slates of “A Players” guaranteed to exceed our clients’ expectations. 

Prior to joining Acertitude, Jack was an associate at a boutique executive search firm. There, he developed expertise searching for leaders of private equity and venture capital-backed SaaS companies. Jack previously served as a financial advisor for a premier, single-source wealth management firm.

When Jack isn’t discovering talent, he can usually be found discovering new routes for his daily run, Brooklyn’s trendy neighborhoods, and the outdoors — always in the company of close friends. We would be remiss not to mention that Jack remains a huge fan of his alma mater’s basketball team The North Carolina Heels (Duke or NC State supporters, you’ve been forewarned, proceed with caution).
