Executive Search

Let our team of experienced nonprofit experts find the right leadership candidate.

Whether you are looking for a new CEO, executive director, chief development officer or other C-suite executive, finding the right leadership for your organization is vital for the future of your mission. A change in your executive lineup affects constituents, staff, the board, donors, partners, and, often, the broader community. It’s important to enlist the expertise of an executive search team with an intimate knowledge of the nonprofit sector—a team that truly understands the competencies needed to fulfill these top roles, and which has the network in place to connect these leaders to your organization.

Our search consultants, who have been nonprofit executives themselves, work with you to design an efficient and effective hiring process. We identify the critical leadership competencies you need and help you draft the job description and salary package that will draw outstanding candidates. We then partner with you through every step: from early recruiting and screening interviews to evaluations, salary negotiations, and extending an offer. We can work with your search committee or hiring executive to provide a framework for your organization’s in-house hiring effort, or we can conduct the search on your behalf.

As a nonprofit ourselves, empowering you with the right leadership is not just our job: It’s our mission. We are relentlessly dedicated to making sure mission-focused organizations in Georgia have the leadership to thrive. Let us put our energy, passion, and expertise to work on your behalf.
