David recently helped us find our next VP of Development. Our previous VP had been in the role for over 15
years so we had an opportunity to assess our program, consider some redirects and figure out what we might want to do differently.  David helped us through all of that and really took the time to get to know the organization, staff and the history of our development program. He made insightful and helpful recommendations about ways to improve and present our program, how to anticipate questions that candidates considering the role might have and how best to promote the opportunity.

David found exceptionally strong candidates who were good cultural fits for us. David is open and transparent in his communication style and brought a highly personalized approach to his work for us. As I was new to my role as CEO, David took the extra time to guide me through this process, answered all of my questions, and assured me throughout. It was a pleasure to work with him. We’re very pleased with the results of the search and would work with David again on future searches.
