Team Size: 30+
Office Location: Houston, Texas
The Role: Sales Account Manager
Vanderbloemen serves churches, schools, nonprofits, and Christian businesses through innovative staffing, compensation, succession, and consulting solutions.
Founded in 2010 by William and Adrienne Vanderbloemen, the company was started out of a deep passion for local churches that would have pastoral vacancies for years, thus minimizing their effectiveness in their communities. After pastoring for 15 years and then working as a corporate Executive Search Consultant, William believed there was a better way to help churches move through this transition.
Fast forward to 2022 and Vanderbloemen now has 30+ employees working for the firm. We have successfully completed more than 1,000 searches in 48 of the 50 states in the U.S and eight countries around the world.
While Vanderbloemen can staff any position at any size organization, the bulk of our work is made up of searches for senior-level staff.
Searches involving Senior Pastor succession are an area of particular expertise. In addition to search work, the firm also provides services in staff consulting, succession planning, diversity consulting, and compensation analysis.
