Vincent Gordon is the President and Principal Consultant at OrgStrength, a 7-year old management consultancy in the Caribbean region, specializing in business turnaround and organizational renewal.
Prior to this, he had 20 years of significant leadership experience at two Fortune 500 companies, firstly at Colgate Palmolive, and then at 3M Jamaica, where he held the position of General Manager/Regional Business Leader (Caribbean Region), before leaving to start his own business. Over the course of his corporate career, Vincent has had several broad-based business experiences, with actual P&L line responsibilities in sales and marketing, finance, supply chain, customer service and human resources.
It is this hands-on experience, along with Six Sigma exposure, which helps him provide unrivalled insights into the renewal opportunities for his clients today. His assignments to date include a full turnaround of a US$150MM company based on Trinidad, which resulted in EBIT moving from low single digits to over 15% in its first full year, and leadership development assignments for high potentials and C-Suite executives within the region.
With a graduate degree in business administration, and as a Certified Intelligent Leadership Executive Coach, Vincent holds as his personal mantra “Nothing that Is Has to Be.” He is a Senior Associate Coach with John McKee & Associates, and provides clients with a uniquely challenging business and executive coaching. In organizational renewal, he thinks and breathes culture, change, leadership development and employee engagement.
Vincent is a former board member of AMCHAM Jamaica and the Jamaica Employers Federation (JEF), and has served as vice-president in both organizations. He is currently an executive member of the UTECH Alumni Association.
