Ross Johnston

Ross is a Director at Kommol. He has over 10 years’ experience in executive search, working across the UK, Europe, and the United States. He has spent his career helping build and shape leadership teams at Board, C-suite, and VP level across all major functions, with a particular emphasis on GTM activity, general management, and commercial leadership.

Ross is passionate about partnering with high-growth technology businesses, enabling them to scale and mature through their most valuable asset – talent. He has worked extensively with some of Europe’s most well-known and hotly anticipated start-ups and scale-ups, as well as many of the leading VC investment firms active in Europe. Ross has also worked with numerous more established, often listed companies, helping them think differently and embrace innovation around digital and technology, often shaping their acquisition strategies and integrations at a senior leadership level. 

Ross spent much of his early career in the US market before settling in Europe in more recent years. He holds a BA from James Madison University in USA, where he received a full sports scholarship. 

Outside of the office, Ross is an avid investor in both start-ups and in publicly traded markets. He is a keen golfer, amateur chef, motorsport fan, and seeks any excuse to travel to a new destination.
