At Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, we take great pride in the depth and breadth of our experience in higher education executive search. In this specialized arena where expertise in managing complex search constituencies and landscapes so significantly impacts institutions' futures, we have an unmatched record of success.
More than one third of all the searches we conduct are for the top leadership positions --president, chancellor, head of school, or executive director. In fact, each year, we place more presidents and chancellors than any other firm. The balance of our searches are for the wide array of senior officers, including provosts, vice presidents, and deans. Our placements are accomplished, diverse, and visionary leaders who strengthen the organizations they lead immeasurably.
Due to our depth of knowledge and experience in higher education, we not only excel at identifying and recruiting leaders from within academic settings, but we also possess the insight needed to identify leaders from nontraditional settings who are best suited to transition successfully to academic leadership. Generalist executive search firms may be adequate in other sectors, but candidates who have an interest in education tend to migrate to our firm and to our attention, because of the number of senior-level searches that we conduct in this space and because of our reputation in the industry.
