Meet Our Team

Our principals and team are not only trained recruiters, but also search consultants with varied and impressive credentials in the corporate, non-profit and governmental sectors. We serve as true partners to our client organizations.

The richness of our combined experiences provides a critical perspective to national and international recruitments. We have provided measured and strategic advice to clients and candidates for decades, in a variety of industries, and for organizations of all sizes and complexity.

We consider it a privilege and responsibility to support the work of non-profit institutions, and to learn about and consider the career history and goals of aspiring professionals and leaders in their fields.
