Executive Searches in Education

Our work in executive search has included recruitments for senior development, program, and marketing and communications professionals.

These assignments have included searches in the areas of medical research and healthcare, human services,  public and international policy, youth development, STEM education, educational access, and international  student exchange.


The majority of our work has always been devoted to identifying and recruiting fundraising leaders. These recruitments reflected a variety of positions from Executive Directors of Foundations to Chief Philanthropy Officer to Major Gifts Officer. 



The premise of this foundation is one life on this planet is no more valuable than another.
