Meet CJ

CJ Grasso serves as the Partnerships Business Manager, where he is responsible for building, scaling, and optimizing McChrystal Group’s sales processes to accelerate the growth of the company.

What did you do before joining McChrystal Group?

Before joining McChrystal Group I helped lead an interdisciplinary research program at Northeastern University's Global Resilience Institute. In this role, I researched what makes communities resilient to disruptions and helped turn those findings into strategies that practitioners could implement in their own planning efforts.

Why did you join McChrystal Group?

2020/21 were turning points for how organizations across every sector operated and, as importantly, thought about risk and resilience. I joined the McChrystal Group for the opportunity to help leaders navigate these challenges. McChrystal Group's focus on leading at every level provides the chance—and responsibility—for every team member to contribute to our team and clients' success.

What are your favorite books (besides Team of Teams!)?

My library is a pretty eclectic mix of genres, but I recently finished Grant by Ron Chernow. It's a great look into how a fallible and often controversial person can lead with humility amidst crisis. It was also a fascinating “in-the-moment” lens through which to examine the most tumultuous decades in American history. Absolutely recommend the Kindle or audiobook version though—unless you're looking for a solid workout hauling it around.
