How to Select a Search Firm

Attracting and ultimately appointing a senior official of a university or college is one of the most important endeavors that most search committee members will ever undertake. The leader you choose will set the course for your institution – or a significant part of it – for years to come. The ability of the institution to fulfill its educational mission hinges on finding exactly the right person for the job – the one with the right mixture of skills and traits, who will balance tradition and innovation, decisive leadership, and collegiality.

We understand the pressure that search committee chairs, members and administrators feel to achieve great results. Storbeck/Pimentel's depth of experience in higher education search assures success in these processes.

If you are on a search committee for the first time – an administrator, faculty member, or student who has been newly tasked with recruitment – or have previous search experience but wish to review the topic, we can help you get started with comprehensive advice for conducting a successful search.

We would also be very happy to speak with you and answer any questions that you have about the search process and the advantages of hiring Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates to assist in your search.
