Egret Consulting Group (Mundelin, IL): Company founder Ted Konnerth is retiring from the executive search field. He will continue to offer consulting services for Egret Consulting’s clients in their M&A endeavors for the next several years in association with Merrimack Group.
Konnerth sold Egret Consulting to Brooke Ziolo in 2019. Ziolo said in the press release, “It’s been such an honor working for Ted over the past 13 years. He taught me everything I know about the lighting industry and recruiting. He built an amazing recruiting family at Egret and will be greatly missed. We wish him the best in his transition into M&A consulting.”
Konnerth, who was a frequent contributor to Electrical Wholesaling over the years on human resources, the lighting market and distributor operations, founded Egret in 1999 and grew the firm to the largest executive search firm dedicated solely to the electrical industry with verticals in lighting, electrical distribution, renewable energy, building automation and wire & cable.
