The Search Process

Our work begins with an in-depth review of your needs and culture — and our knowledge of the current work environment in the nonprofit sector. This step helps us clarify the issues that will affect your organization and its goals — and determine the skillset your next leader will need in order to respond to them.

Drawing on our extensive database developed over multiple decades, as well as national networks and our personal relationships with qualified individuals, we can identify and develop candidates with the talent and personality your organization needs to succeed, now and in the future.

As part of our search process — honed through hundreds of successful searches for nonprofits across the nation — we conduct an extensive reference and verification process for every candidate, which includes confirming employment history, verifying academic credentials, and conducting extensive reference conversations.

Onboarding for Leadership

A strong recruiting and selection process sets the stage for a successful search; however, quality onboarding represents the final step in ensuring the success of your new leader. Campbell & Company helps newly-placed executives determine Board expectations, understand the decision‑making process and set immediate priorities. 

We ultimately ensure that new leaders receive specific feedback early in their tenures and conduct an objective performance assessment within several months of placement.
