I prefer the less formal 2nd shot but focus appears to be slightly off or maybe there was some movement. I agree about the balance of lighting as well. 

 

I'd reshoot that 2nd shot and use a reflector or bounced flash. Also maybe get the subject to smile for a few shots. 

 

As an aside, I'm constantly amused by the photos that some people use for their Linkedin profiles - they seem to forget the purpose of the website!

All the points made above are valid, according to opinion. Mine is, that he appears too wooden and (slightly) aggressive.

I would use a slightly higher camera angle, offering a more friendly tone and encourage him to relax (smile) a bit.

Of course, all this depends on what image he wants to transmit which depends on his business purpose.

I don't think a re-shoot is necessary. You should pretty easily be able to lighten up the shadow side in Photoshop. I'd be happy to work on it for you if you want to send me the file. I doubt it would take more than five minutes. That would save you both the time and hassle of doing it all over.
