Zachary Shurtleff


Before materializing his passion for talent optimization by founding PARAGON, Zachary gained experience at world-renowned companies such as Apple and Tesla. It was at these companies that his drive to develop and empower top-performing teams and leaders caught fire.

He has an insatiable desire to develop innovative solutions that solve the most complex people and organizational behavior problems. When he discovered The Predictive Index® with his most recent company, an industry-leading wheelchair accessible vehicle manufacturer, he immediately knew it was a game-changer. Being able design and implement human capital strategy more objectively with real data was a no-brainer and he developed such a deep conviction of its capability to transform companies that he decided to share it with the world via his consultancy, PARAGON.
