Why JDR Growth Partners?


We use the word partner in our name with intention because we are business building partners rather than drive-by consultants.  You can count on us to be in-it-to-win-it with you and your team because your success is the ultimate measure of our purpose and value.

Strategic and Action Oriented

We have a reputation for quickly and strategically assessing organizations and markets, identifying opportunities and helping leaders mobilize resources to improve business practices and results with the appropriate sense of urgency. We believe that team alignment on a shared vision of success and a plan to make it reality requires thorough and collaborative analysis and planning. But we also appreciate the need to take action when new insights reveal time sensitive opportunities. 

Team Building & Coaching

What sets JDR apart is our wealth of experience actually navigating challenges and opportunities similar to those that you are experiencing. We've been there and actually done it, not just studied it and consulted. It is our strong track record of coaching and developing seasoned and emerging leaders on to fulfilling career paths and improved results that separates us from most consultants and executive coaches. We can help you build high performance, cross-functional teams with complementary skill sets, creating a sum that is stronger than its parts.


We believe that end-user inspired innovation backed by persuasive marketing support and disciplined sales execution are the life-blood of profitable business growth that stands the test of time. We have helped many companies and brands achieve a unique, winning market position. We have extensive innovation, marketing and selling experience building and revitalizing some of the strongest brands in the world.


We have the financial education and acumen to create economic value, honed by many years of bottom line responsibility. Our record of growing and improving the financial performance of businesses facing a variety of challenges and opportunities speaks for itself. We are intimately familiar with financial restructurings, acquisitions, and the marketing and selling of a business.

JDR's practical approach offers a clear eyed and accessible solution to first understanding and then overcoming a company’s obstacles to growth.  The leader’s responsibility to be self aware, empowering of others and accountable are not new concepts– but Jude’s treatment is a breath of fresh air that leaders can intuitively understand and quickly adopt to create positive and sustainable change in themselves, their teams and their firms.

- Michael Sicher, Owner & CEO at IDENTITI

My team and I worked with Jude for about three years. It was an extremely rewarding experience for us on both a personal and professional is clear that his fingerprints are all over the successful growth of our culture and our business as a whole. 

Jude will always tell you exactly how it is. He isn’t afraid to tell you the unpleasant truths, which is exactly what we needed as an organization. I will forever be grateful for my time with Jude and I can’t recommend him more strongly to anyone interested in his many talents as a growth and strategy expert.

- John Gounaris, Vice President of Marketing, G&W Electric

Jude worked with our executive leadership team to revise our strategic plan and, afterwards, we chose to continue our engagement for individual coaching of key leaders.

As a result of our work together, our team is more honest about our shortcomings and are better able to have open and difficult conversations to set the company on a better track....Jude will help your team work better together. They will set a better example for extended leadership throughout your organization to help you and your company grow and improve.
