Our practice selectively matches passionate, high-performing professionals with forward-thinking, mission-driven client organizations committed to making positive change. As a boutique search firm, we are able to tailor each search based on our clients’ unique immediate and future needs, timelines, and desired outcomes. We realize that search is not a “one-size fits all” solution. Through our industry expertise and deep understanding of mission driven organizations, we are able to ask the right questions, and comprehend the client’s aspirations, values and culture. Our process involves an in-depth needs analysis discovered through conversations with key stakeholders and hiring authorities.  Our team will craft a compelling story to shepherd in the marketplace and create a search profile based on our work together.

As a growing team, to meet our clients’ needs, we are continuously expanding our knowledge and outreach into the diverse world of nonprofit.  Our principled approach to recruiting – honesty, transparency, accountability – empowers our clients and candidates to know that they have chosen a firm with integrity. Let’s work together to achieve a common mission:  Making the world a better place.
