South/Southwest Non-profit Search

Our executive search process is designed specifically for the non-profit sector. We understand what it is like to work with stakeholders, not customers; to build a fundraising program from the ground up; to imagine a sustainable way to serve those who are overlooked or a novel way to address an intractable problem. Applying the lessons of the non-profit world to executive search, we offer a process that meets non-profits short- and long-term needs and redefines their search expectations.

Our South/Southwest network includes senior staff at some of the region’s most significant non- and for-profits working in sectors from energy to tourism and more. Our full network includes more than 37,000 contacts across the country.
