Former internal executive search leader for Cox Enterprises joins Tatum

ATLANTA - September 4, 2019 - Tatum today announced the appointment of John Spitzler as Bay Area director of executive search. Spitzler comes in with more than 15 years of recruiting experience in SaaS, digital media, technology services and healthcare. He has executed hundreds of searches at the vice president and C-suite level for high-growth companies across North America. This key leadership appointment underscores Tatum’s commitment to continued growth and success in the U.S. marketplace.

“I’m confident Spitzler’s well-decorated resume and expertise in executive search will be a great benefit at Tatum,” said Brad Bauer, Tatum's vice president of executive search. “He will be focused on strengthening our executive search practice for both middle-market and Fortune 500 companies in SaaS, digital media, technology and business services and healthcare.”

Spitzler joins Tatum from Cox Enterprises — a privately held, $20 billion global firm with more than 100 well-known brands in digital media and communications, software, healthcare, automotive and financial services — where he spearheaded and led its internal executive search function. Prior to joining Cox, John ran his own boutique retained-search firm for over 10 years, partnering with venture capital and private equity firms and their middle-market portfolio companies.

“I’m thrilled to join Tatum and lead their Bay Area technology practice. Tatum is a brand I’ve always respected and I look forward to working with the entire team to grow our presence in this important market,” said Spitzler.
