Executive Search for Media & Publishing Enterprises

Using the executive search process that we have developed specifically for the non-profit sector, DRi has guided some of the most influential media organizations in the country—from NPR to Greater Public—to identify transformative staff at all levels.

DRi searches deliver high-quality candidates—people who are passionately driven by missions and who drive relentlessly toward results—within 60 days. But as experts in the non-profit sector, we believe that we have an obligation to deliver much more than that. After decades of leading non-profit organizations, DRi’s founders created an executive search process designed to meet the short- and long-term needs of the non-profit sector. As one of the most effective search firms in the country, we pledge to recruit only those people who meet our own high standards and to redefine your search expectations in the process.

Our resources make us uniquely suited to deliver on this promise:

Our Team

We are deliberately structured to ensure that one of our leaders plays a hands-on role in every search we conduct. Our leaders understand the rapid change and technological, economic, and social pressures that non-profit media organizations face in the 21st century, as well as the need for creative business models to surmount them. They know how to identify high-level staff who thrive in such demanding and high-impact environments. Our leaders are supported by a carefully structured team of specialists that works together on every assignment. Drawing on our experience in the non-profit sector, our staff includes a dedicated Candidate Stewardship Associate who ensures that candidates have positive impressions of our clients—no matter the outcome of their own candidacies.

Our Network

DRi has built one of the largest networks in the country of leaders qualified for non-profit organizations. Our network includes Executive Directors, program directors, and fundraising leaders reimagining non-profit media across the country. We use cutting-edge search technologies to put this network at our clients’ fingertips.

Our Integrity

After decades of work with some of the most innovative and effective media organizations in the country, we have the expertise and the courage to tell you what is right for your non-profit.
