Justin Wild | High School Principal, The American School of Bombay

Mr. Justin Wild has been appointed as the new High School Principal at The American School of Bombay following a competitive search process.

Mr. Justin Wild will join The American School of Bombay as their new High School Principal starting from the 2019-2020 school year. Originally from Kansas, in the United States, Mr. Wild and his wife, Julie (a Counsellor and Music Teacher) have lived and taught, around the world, for 20+ years—including, China, Chile, and Korea. Mr. Wild currently serves as the High School Vice Principal at the Shanghai American School, in China.

On his appointment, Mr. Wild commented that “we leave Shanghai American School enriched and blessed people, and we travel to The American School of Bombay thankful to be joining a community already close to our hearts”.

ASB selected CIS Leadership Searches, represented by Pauline O’Brien and Joe Cornacchio, to lead the search for a new High School Principal in a process involving members across the school community. In consultation with the Board members, CIS carefully evaluated all applicants, matching the skills, experiences and philosophies of the candidates against the needs of the school. Contending candidates were personally video-interviewed by CIS and reviewed before being shortlisted and invited to Mumbai for final onsite interviews.

Justin remarked, "I am grateful for the personal touch CIS put on my candidacy; speaking with Joe felt less like an interview and more like a real conversation, and that humanistic approach was a great entry point for becoming a finalist at The American School of Bombay."

ASB’s Head of School, Mr. Craig Johnson, stated, “We are very excited to have Justin and Julie join us next year. With the appointment of Justin, the American School of Bombay has now successfully partnered with CIS in the hiring of four members of our leadership team.”

Please join CIS in congratulating Mr. Wild and The American School of Bombay on this excellent appointment.
