About John

Meet John Furth…Consultant, Coach, Thought Leader

As a management consultant and coach, John works with business leaders to drive performance and growth in their businesses and personal lives. Because today’s business leaders understand that if they aren’t prepared to powerfully disrupt their own companies’ and competitors’ business models when necessary, they will fall behind and put themselves and their businesses at risk.

Having spent the past 30 years as an internal and external consultant holding senior positions at Hitachi Consulting, Discovery Communication, Sony Corporation, Roland Berger Strategy Consulting and the Association of Management Consulting Firms (AMCF), he formed Furth & Associates, LLC in 2013 with the mission to successfully increase the performance of CEO’s and their C-Suite executives while enhancing the quality of their lives. In 2015, John was invited to become a Vistage Chair for Brooklyn, a role which allows him to draw on his vast experience and extensive network to coach and advise CEOs and business owners of NYC-based small and mid-sized companies.

John specializes in developing and implementing innovative business models, marketing strategies and business development/sales improvement projects while taking advantage of licensing, alliance and partnership opportunities to help clients achieve their goals.

With businesses often needing outside expertise in formulating disruptive strategies and solutions which have the potential to transform the company, an industry or even an entire society, past projects have included major restructurings and reorganizations, development of corporate and product strategies, as well as improving sales, marketing and business development activities to drive transformation, expansion and unprecedented growth.

John is often called to share his expertise and has spoken at the Harvard Club of New York City, the Waseda Marketing Forum in Tokyo, the National Press Club in Washington, DC, IBM’s Global Innovation Outlook, Consult-Con in San Diego, the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, National Public Radio and in front of various trade groups.

He’s also been quoted extensively in publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, American Banker and Industry Standard, plus as a regular columnist with New York Daily News and blogs on topics relating to management, strategy and leadership.

John’s first book, Owning Tomorrow: The Unstoppable Force of Disruptive Leadership has launched to 5 Star reviewed success. It has been cited by Fupping.com as one of seven books that will make you smarter if you read them, alongside classics like Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point and Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
