Jeremy Clark


Independent Agent


The taste of king cobra blood, hanging with The Raiders of the Nassau ghetto, or how to surprise corrupt military police when they rob you on your birthday.


Most people can tell you an adversity story, some sort of life challenge that helped define their character. But we’d never heard one quite like Jeremy’s. As a young electrician, he had just signed on to a new job at a Northern Canadian gas plant, but broke his arm on the very first day. Agony. Arctic winds of –40°. Yet, determined to show management he was worthy of their faith, he hid his injury – which was so bad it would require surgery ­– for an entire day, making him an overnight legend in the oil & gas world. And we thought we knew about commitment. Although he’s been to over thirty countries, Jeremy felt an immediate resonance with Japan, and within a week of signing an offer letter, the Vancouver native had sold his car and was packing up to begin crushing it as a Tokyo recruiter. Colleagues and friends love him for his straight-shooter approach to life. Whether he’s making his next executive placement or electric scootering around Myanmar’s mystical city of Bagan, he wastes no time in overthought, while always making time for a joke to keep the mood buoyant. Asked what he digs about being a Partner here, he says, “The Zensho Agency vibe is extremely progressive, which includes recognizing change and embracing it.” Jeremy’s coming on board was one of our most positive changes ever. We’re just lucky we didn’t have to hike up into the frozen tundra of British Columbia to find him.

Values: A message to our awesome tribe

Years from now, you may not remember the particulars of deals you closed at Zensho (or what the returns were). You will remember your colleagues and how it felt to work with them. The imprint you left on the world.

We invited you to join our tribe because you impressed us as someone who shares values intrinsic to our culture. But just to ensure we’re totally on the same page, here they are, spelled out in black and white and trimmed in our corporate colors.

Freedom is Zensho’s central pillar. Beyond the mere state of being free, for us the word carries with it a sense of obligation: “Freedom to…” What follows should define you as a person. Of course, to provide your business community with amazing service, but also to engage and give back to the world. And that’s where Autonomy comes in. Unlike the general implications of self-rule, ours leads not to detachment but to a broad and radical sense of interconnectivity. One that enables each of us to commune with others in infinite ways. Together, these two values empower you like nothing else on earth, and they’re here waiting for you.

So, what do we ask in return?

Transparency means not only having open books, but being one yourself. No secrets or ulterior agendas. It is to share personal and industry information without seeking to leverage it for profit or motivate others in any way. Its cousin, Clarity, is about including precision and context in the communication process. At Zensho, we always try to anticipate the details a fellow partner might need and supply them up front.

Which leads us to…

Collaboration. That is, to cooperate meaningfully. Because only through recognizing individual strengths can we thrive as a whole. For us, collaboration requires presence as we listen and respond, evolving toward a collective goal represented by the name of our charity initiative: Ayni (reciprocity). This can’t exist without Collegiality. How we care for each other and the tribe as a whole, share both opportunity and responsibility with open hearts – that’s what empowers us to excel as a firm.

With these six in place, our seventh value happens all by itself.

Harmony. When your environment manifests balance between all people and things – even forces that oppose each other – life just flows. Living completely becomes a state of being. After all, that’s the very meaning of Zensho.
