Personal Business Advisors ® (PBA) began as a traditional consulting company catering to companies in 32 countries.
The significant backlog of hundreds of thousands of superbly qualified, talented individuals sitting on the sidelines after the last recession at the beginning of this millennium, globalization, outsourcing, the export of millions of jobs from the western to the eastern hemisphere led to the development of Personal Business Advisors ® in its current form.
As early as 2001, Personal Business Advisors ® recognized this dramatic paradigm shift and identified a proven way to help disenfranchised executives to succeed -despite times of economic hardship and personal challenges: INSOURCING.
Personal Business Advisors ® Executive Team consists of accountable, down-to-earth and proven industry veterans -ranging from globally successful business developers, Executive Recruiters to Fortune 50 Senior Executives. In their corporate positions they have been responsible for hundreds of employees (each) and are now responsible for strategic growth, domestic/international partnerships as well as global expansion. They REFUSED to take part in the downsizing/ merger & acquisitions, cost-cutting frenzy of corporate America, but chose organic growth and entrepreneurship as their way to bring prosperity back to those, who are willing to earn it.
While initially their main mission was helping senior-level-executives to succeed in a market that is presenting ever-increasing challenges for employees/ corporations and entrepreneurs alike, Personal Business Advisors ® has now expanded its offerings to mid-level managers and veterans of the armed forces.
“I first met John in early 2009 when I was searching for my next move after the real estate downturn necessitated a change. John spent a great deal of time getting to know me well before making creative recommendations. Six years later during another time of transition, John picked up where he left off with me and focused on opportunities that fit not just my background but also my personality and goals. John has been a critical resource by presenting and helping me to evaluate mid-to-later career alternatives to W-2 employment.”
Recommendation for John Ovens Executive Senior Advisor, Personal Business Advisors
“PBA provides very professional career advice and a customized job search. They are patient, kind and very easy to work with. They tracked my job application status and refined the job search process as necessary, based on my interests and goals, through our weekly meetings. As a result, I was able to find an opportunity that effectively matches my skills with my passion. I greatly appreciated their service during my career transition. Thanks again”!

I wanted to take the time to let you know how much I appreciate your services and how valuable you have become to me over the past months.
When I started the journey, with the goal of being my own boss or investing in a small business, I had no idea where to look or what to do. I had looked at franchise websites but really had no way of culling through all the information in an organized manner. I was also going this alone so I had no knowledge of how to do it and very limited resources to draw from.
