San Diego, 03/2024—TurningPoint Executive Search, a leading local and global executive search firm, is pleased to announce the successful placement of Shara Evans as the Director of Marketing at Jones Lake Management. This strategic placement is another example of TurningPoint’s commitment to connecting top-tier leaders across the U.S. with innovative Private Equity and family-run organizations.

Jones Lake Management is a third-generation lake management company that has made Lake Cumberland one of the most productive freshwater lakes for striped bass in the world. Its successful lake management and fish production practices have catapulted them into being one of the fastest-growing aquatic science and maintenance companies in the United States.

Evans brings with her a deep understanding of marketing and communications. She has successfully developed integrated campaigns and strategic communications throughout her career. With both an undergraduate degree in communications as well as a graduate degree in public relations, she will continue Jones Lake Management’s successful trajectory.

“Shara will take Jones Lake Management to new heights,” says Melanie Strauss, the TurningPoint Executive Search Partner who led the search. “This is a very niche market with a limited candidate pool of professionals who possess the knowledge and business acumen to meet our client’s needs. However, Shara shined from day one. Not only was she extremely professional and responsive, but she was also a great fit culturally.”

Jones Lake Management started humbly with one man’s love for the water and a plan to stock his favorite regional lakes with healthy fish. Today, with a family of companies, more than 325 years of combined experience, and 110+ biologists on staff, Jones Lake Management continues to be at the forefront of aquatic science and maintenance.

TurningPoint Executive Search has been placing mid- and senior-level talent since 2007 across 4-Quadrants, including Sales/Customer Experience, Marketing/Product, Operations/HR/Finance, and C-suite leadership. The TurningPoint team is proud to have played a key role in identifying and placing a leader of Shara’s caliber. This successful collaboration with Jones Lake Management and Fort Point Capital reflects TurningPoint’s dedication to being a true partner to the hundreds of middle-market companies they’ve supported since their founding nearly 20 years ago.
