Meet the Team
Partner, Practice Director
Meet John Geraghty. John, one of the founding members of Chesapeake Search Partners, is entering his 14th year in the Recruiting industry. In 2008 John started with Stephen James Associates doing Accounting & Finance recruiting and he has remained in that vertical his entire career. John co-leads the practice with Rick Fribush and his particular focus is on candidate development and sourcing for our clients while perfecting CSP’s recruiting processes.
John’s approach to the business has always been and will continue to be relationship based. Developing and nurturing strong connections with both clients and candidates has been the key to his and CSP’s success. He has a relentless attitude to keep searching and never settle until the best possible match can be found. “We are not in a volume numbers game. We truly enjoy partnering with our clients and candidates to find the best fit for both parties to ensure successful long-term placements and relationships.”
As a native of Baltimore, John knows how strong relationships and connections are in “Smaltimore”. He is a second-generation Calvert Hall graduate where he played for their championship soccer program. Beyond Baltimore John attended JMU and lived in Italy, Japan, and Hawaii while also travelling internationally to attend Soccer World Cups in Japan, Germany, South Africa, and Brazil. John now resides in Glen Arm with his wife Suzanne and his 3 boys Finn (8), Connor (6), and Jack (1).
