Foundations & Philanthropy

Ensuring foundations attract the right leaders to fulfill their mission

Grant making organizations require sophisticated leaders who can both manage internal processes and operate externally with partners, grantees, and other funders. Clients expect leaders who understand the missions of grantees and how to scale effective interventions to achieve impact at scale.

There’s a limited pool of talent with the skills and experience to address these challenges, which is why we approach the process of securing these dynamic leaders creatively, matching the right people to the role to meet our clients’ strategic, operational, and commercial goals. Our relationships with a diverse set of organizations and leaders are distinctive in the executive search and leadership advisory industry. Recent engagements represent our breadth of experience: from intergenerational family-led foundations to the most sophisticated evidence-based philanthropists.

We believe in the opportunity of diversity to broaden the collective organizational perspective. In 2018 we pledged that at least 50% of our initial slate of longlisted board candidates would be diverse
