Jeremy Goldstein is a lawyer who is well-known and highly respected. He holds three degrees: two in Art History and one in the field of law.
Although he has a Bachelors as well as a Masters in Art History, the subject seems to simply be a passion of Goldstein’s because he is known for his work as a lawyer. As a lawyer, Goldstein handles many cases that have to do with executive compensation.
He didn’t start off handling these types of cases, however. Originally, he had nothing to do with executive compensation.
However, he began to hear a lot of talk from those who were in that line of work. They were not happy with the way things had been working out for them and wanted a change. Actually they wanted more than a change; they wanted out. You can Connect Jeremy on LinkedIn
Many executive compensation committees left the large organizations that they were working with. Goldstein saw this as an opportunity to offer those same services. He thought this through, however, not wanting to immediately jump into things.
He figured that the pros outweighed the cons then jumped head first into the world of executive compensation.
He has seen much success in this field, and his clients have complete and utter trust in him. One reason that they trust him is due to the fact that he shows himself to be someone who cares. Jeremy Goldstein makes it a point to connect with clients even when they aren’t currently working on a project. He sees them socially.
Sometimes, however, he feels that sending out a simple email or text message to let them know that he is thinking of them will suffice.
Goldstein not only sees this as a business strategy but as a way to be. You should always let people know that you care.
Goldstein’s current career reflects one of his mottos: “Things that seem like setbacks are actually opportunities.” Executive compensation committees leaving their organizations was a setback for the organizations, but it was an opportunity for Goldstein, and it wasn’t an opportunity that he had missed.
Sometimes you must examine the situations of others to decide what your next move could be.
