Our Reach

Our focus may be narrow, but our reach is global. With offices in Ohio, California, and Texas, our relationships span a broad range of institutions around the world. A top ranked higher education executive search firm, clients entrust us to lead critical higher education executive search assignments across all leadership levels including the search for the next President, Provost, Dean, Vice President, Department Chairs, Institute Directors, and other senior academic administrators.

Through the use of advanced technology and deliberate outreach to a series of networks, our internal research team actively monitors and develops relationships with the next generation of leadership talent with special attention paid to emerging "stars" from under-represented groups.
