Strong Financial Stewardship Ensures an Institution’s Legacy

Colleges and universities increasingly face diminished endowments, reduced government support, increased competition and other circumstances that have the potential to compromise their vision and future legacy. Strong chief financial officers and chief business officers balance strategic objectives with economic reality, demonstrate transformative leadership in managing an institution’s finances and advise the president and board on future direction. Superior financial leadership helps an institution live up to its vision and ensure its legacy.

Our consulting team has years of experience in higher education and not-for-profit financial management. We start with a thorough understanding of our client’s mission, culture and requirements, then develop precise position specifications that become the foundation for the search. We customize our outreach to find proven CFOs/CBOs and other leaders and use rigorous screening, interviews, online research and references to support selection of the finest candidate.
