This week, Mr. Gerald Hector welcomes Mr. Dale Jones, Chief Executive Officer of

MagnaVista Partners! Dale Jones is the Chief Executive Officer of Magna Vista Partners, a leadership advisory firm helping leaders think through business strategy, board issues, corporate governance and human capital. He serves as a trusted advisor to CEOs and leaders. 

Formerly CEO of The Diversified Search Group and previously Vice Chair of Heidrick & Struggles, Jones focused on finding and attracting CEO and board-level talent for clients seeking authentic leadership — and capacity to lead. He is particularly adept at identifying those with heartfelt desire to serve others combined with “competencies in context” that are often difficult to find.

Dale is a current corporate board member for Rollins, Inc. (NYSE: ROL), Trilith Film Studios — one of the largest purpose-built movie studios in North America — Chick-fil-A, and Outset Medical. In the past, he has served on corporate boards for Northwestern Mutual Corp., Hughes Supply, and Kohl’s Corporation. He additionally serves other not-for-profit roles with Morehouse College (emeritus trustee), The Special Olympics (current), the Andrew Young Foundation (current) and the Salvation Army’s national advisory board. He’s frequently quoted in the media and contributes regularly as a speaker/instructor at Georgetown University. 

Since reimagining his calling, Dale has focused his time and energy cultivating the next generation of leaders through public speaking, board service and philanthropy. Dale and his wife Yolanda make their home in both Atlanta Georgia and Washington DC. They have two adult children attending graduate schools in Providence R.I. and NYC.
