It's the difference between a good hire —
And the right hire.

What are you looking for in a candidate?

Chances are, it’s more than an impressive resume. You need someone with the right approach. With a proven ability to find common ground. Someone who can work collaboratively across public and private sectors—all while leading an active, engaged staff.

With decades of experience in director-level roles ourselves, we have an intimate knowledge of the types of challenges you’re hiring for.

To understand your specific situation, we’ll spend time with you doing a thorough assessment, determining the experience, skills and characteristics an ideal candidate must possess to take your port forward. Then we’ll bring you hand-selected candidates who meet your exacting criteria.
