Arnon Garonzik became a PSMJ consultant following a lengthy career in the A/E/C industry with a primary focus on mergers and acquisitions, business valuation, ownership transition and strategic and operational planning.  Arnon served as the Chief Legal Officer of A/E/C service companies during the first 25 years of his career, including 10 years as a partner and in-house General Counsel of the Environmental Resources Management (ERM) Group, one of the world’s largest environmental engineering and consulting firms.


Brian Burnett joined the ranks of PSMJ consultants after a 34-year career at a mid-size engineering firm, where he was President/CEO since 2003. He is now helping leaders understand and implement best practices for internal leadership and ownership transitions. Brian’s real-world experience with leadership and ownership transitions comes from having been a part of his former company’s four major leadership transitions in the firm’s 58-year history. In 1985, Brian became a partner and Vice-President when the founder of the company retired. In 1997, Brian became President when the current President at the time died tragically. In 2003, Brian became the President/CEO upon the retirement of a 40-year corporate leader. From 2013 to 2017, Brian was responsible for helping the company replace and transition nine major leadership positions, including his CEO position. Overseeing this final transition required extensive planning and leadership development over an eight-year period prior to Brian retiring in June 2017.
