About Jeffrey Lackey

Jeffrey grew up in a rural part of Ohio on a farm. His parents were both Air Force Veterans, and his dad served in both Korea and Vietnam. His dad retired from the Air Force after 22 years of service, and his mom opened up a bookstore in the house they built beside his grandparents home on a 55-acre farm.

The bookstore helped the family to get by and Jeffrey learned a lot from his parents who had lived all over the world and ran this small business, even though they were in an agricultural area of Ohio. While his family faced serious financial and health related challenges, he knew these hardships would bring him the empathy he needed to lead and serve others. His story is one of hope, perseverance, belief, faith, and a desire to lead others in a way that builds them up to more than they even believed they could be. Now Jeffrey has a family with his wife of over 30 years, 4 grown children, a dog and 2 cats. According to Jeffrey, “It has been a full life and I am grateful for it all.”

Jeffrey’s commitment to helping corporations unlock their growth strategy and potential are reflected in his role as the CEO and Founder of JKL Advisors as well the podcast host for “Growing Your Business with People!.”

His position at CVS Health as Enterprise Vice President of Talent Acquisition allowed him to lead teams to hire over 1 million people in 70+ countries across 8 different industries – including healthcare, retail, pharmacy, aerospace, insurance, energy, defense, and communications. The teams were accountable for the end-to-end delivery, marketing, technology, policies, and processes to deliver great candidates and hiring leader experience which helped CVS to grow from a Fortune 12 to a Fortune 4 company in less than 8 years.

Additionally, Jeffrey served as the Group Head of Global Resourcing with Rolls-Royce.
