Jerome Jewell is a business consultant who helps companies with organizational development and strategy.
A veteran of 22 years in the corporate arena prior to starting his consulting practice, he began his career with global industry leaders such as the Chase Manhattan Bank and the New York Times. He found his calling with the IBM Corporation, where he held a variety of leadership positions, and his world expanded exponentially both in ideas and geography during his 13 years there.
The influence of his wanderings across Greece, France, Mexico, Italy, Morocco, Bermuda, Argentina, Belgium, Tanzania, Kenya, Hungary, Switzerland, Monaco, Germany, the U.K, Canada, Austria, Belgium, The Netherlands, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica is evident in his work. His unusual outlook also reflects the perseverance and independent thinking required in his non-work endeavors, which include scaling Mt. Kilimanjaro, running the Marine Corps Marathon, and swimming the “Alcatraz Challenge” across San Francisco Bay twice.
