Bill Hogenauer


Bill Hogenauer is a Partner at JM Search and a Co-Practice Leader of the Firm’s IT Executives Practice. He leverages more than two decades of business development and executive leadership experience in multiple technical verticals and brings valuable perspectives to executive search. His primary focus is recruiting C-level IT executives in companies of all sizes. Bill helps our clients attract senior IT leadership (CIO/CTO/CDO) within various businesses, from foods to fintech, investing to insurance, and SaaS companies of all types.

Prior to JM Search, Bill spent four years leading corporate and business development as Vice President for a global manufacturing technology business. Prior to that, he helped grow a small business and launched three others. Bill’s operating roles have included engineering & technology management, sales & business development, and corporate leadership in private and public companies.

Having spent his career building products and businesses ranging from manufacturing to complex algorithms embedded in medical software, Bill deeply understands complex technical roles at the functional level. He also understands what it takes to lead a team and organization through both the most exciting and the most difficult of times, regardless of whether that is due to rapid growth or other major transition.

Bill graduated from Lehigh University with a degree in Materials Science Engineering. He grew up on Long Island and now  lives with his wife of 21 years and three awesome children in Bucks County, PA. When not deeply engaged with a candidate, client, or co-worker, Bill enjoys time with his family, cycling, adventure sports, travel, golf (HDCP provided upon request) and proving (over and over again) that you don’t have to spend more than $20 to find a great bottle of wine.
