Jack Zukerman

If you want to be successful in business, you keep your word---I don’t care what else you do---but keep your word.

Lighting designers are much smarter than the people who manufacture---listen to what they want.

People want to do business with people who are easy to do business with---nothing’s changed in 100 years.

Don’t be afraid to be an innovator---do not be afraid to be the first.

When you make a mistake or have a bad project, you deal with it immediately.  Never run away from a problem.

You cannot gouge customers just because you are specified.

You must respect your distributors and not go behind their back and sell direct just because a big order is offered to you.

I have learned that the most important thing in life is your family, because after all is said and done, that’s what’s really important.



Testimonials

"Up until now, I had lost faith in recruiters and recruitment firms. I was simply tired of being treated like just another resume, and not a talented, working professional.  Paul Pompeo changed my perception altogether. Paul is a true professional. He is thorough, pays close attention to detail, works with his candidates every step of the way. Plus, Paul offers the type of advice that really counts in today's competitive market. I wish there were 100 Paul Pompeo's out there placing hard working management professionals in their respective industries."
