John T. Griffith is Vice President of Consulting Services and is an Executive Coach and Facilitator for MCG Partners. John is responsible for driving the strategic growth of MCG Partners, a woman-owned, management consultancy specializing in leadership development, executive coaching, talent management, organizational effectiveness, management training, and career management solutions.
Most recently at Linkage Inc, John worked with executives of several global Fortune 500 firms to successfully implement critical projects. These projects ranged from restructuring a 30,000-person supply chain, to CEO succession, to designing a multi-year, multi-million-dollar customized leadership program to develop over 2,000 managers and directors for future leadership roles.
Prior to that, he ran his own consulting firm. In that role, he honed a two-pronged approach of coaching executives to be great leaders while also leveraging his process engineering skills to enable companies to grow and scale at an accelerated rate. Through this method, he consistently partnered with companies to produce extraordinary business results. John coached a founding member of a start-up from $0 to $250M in annual revenue over a four-year period.

While serving six years as a Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force, he graduated Summa Cum Laude from Northeastern University with a degree in Industrial Engineering and has completed continuing education at UPenn’s Wharton School of Business.
He has an insatiable curiosity that drives him to travel the world to understand other cultures and new ways of thinking and doing things. He is also a certified yoga teacher and all-around health nut. He lives near Boston with his wife and daughter.
