We worked with the entire leadership team to develop a profile for this newly created position. We used a number of targeted organizations for outreach, and identified stellar candidates within weeks. After reviewing over 234 potential candidates, we interviewed 14 promising leads.

The successful candidate was straight out of central casting for this role, with extensive experience focused on helping vulnerable children and families, including time spent working for our 100 year old nonprofit client with the same mission.
