Hiring key executive staff for a mission-driven organization is as serious as an organ transplant. Bringing an outsider into your body to run a major system is a critical process that warrants help.
Using our experience of 1,000+ searches and best practices, we bring an objective set of eyes to the executive search process, finding candidates you wouldn't find anywhere else. We get to know you and the candidates on a DNA level that separates the best from the rest.
You want a candidate that matches you in every way: in vision, work ethic, and culture - someone that brings the experience and skills you need - but most importantly, someone that shares the most intangible of things...your heart.
Your organization is unique. Therefore, the way that you search should be unique. So whether you're a church, school, nonprofit, family office, or values-based business, we're ready to serve you.
