INDUSTRIAL & MANUFACTURING, TOKYO
ASK ME ABOUT
The art of losing forty kilograms in five days, how the first motorcycle ride of my life nearly ended in death on a bull’s horns, or what made friends give me the nickname “Decibels.”
AND FOR THE REST OF THE STORY
Meet our cosmic optimist. If ever you wanted living proof that the power of positive thinking plus inspired action equals success, look no further than Maistry the Maestro from Johannesburg, South Africa. When his wife’s company offered her a position in Japan, Jez understood it as an invitation from the universe to explore and serve a culture he had long admired, to discover what one of his favorite authors Paulo Coelho calls your “personal legend” by helping others find theirs. If that sounds like a familiar philosophy, well, you can understand why we jumped at the chance to work with Jez. Fortunately, the feeling was mutual. “There really is no other organization like the Agency,” he says. “Strong leadership and consistency of purpose set us apart. Our environment buzzes with camaraderie and everyone pushes the bar.” A voracious reader, viewer and doer, Jez is a veritable font of literary and cultural trivia from Malcolm Gladwell to Marvel Comics, and he will just as quickly take you down at chess as take you hiking up a mountain. When not dazzling the recruitment world with his excellence, he can be found exploring Tokyo’s myriad foodie destinations or cheering on his beloved Manchester United Red Devils. Jez may be looking for his legend, but we know we’ve found one in him.
