Your success begins with your people.

Our Executive Search team is here to help you find them.



Every nonprofit needs leaders who believe in its mission, fit with its culture, and drive success with the right mix of knowledge, experience, and expertise.

Our team works closely with you to understand your culture, your needs, and where you want to take your organization. It's all part of our process to find the very best leaders to guide you forward.

We made the Forbes 2018 list of America's Best Executive Recruiting Firms—a testament to our dedication to advancing the nonprofit sector. 

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.

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