We understand the dynamic challenges and opportunities specific to these types of organizations, including visual and performing arts; schools of art and design; museums; botanical gardens, aquariums, and zoos; associations advancing arts education; public radio; and funders supporting the arts. We are experienced in helping clients identify gifted leaders who can transition into a leadership role that will sustain and amplify an organization’s success.

Since our founding, arts and culture searches have been a vital part of our portfolio. We serve clients who embrace the promise that art and cultural organizations truly can enrich people’s lives.
