As the year quickly comes to a close, we wish you a very Happy Holiday season and a peaceful, prosperous New Year. We hope you will be afforded a brief respite before resuming planning for the upcoming year. The holiday break also presents an opportunity for us to reflect on the past year, to thank recent clients for entrusting us with their senior-most leadership search assignments, and to engage prospective clients in the discussion of future needs.

For over 20 years we have solely focused our search practice on the recruitment of senior leaders to support the growth of the foremost universities, research parks, institutes, academic medical centers, and organizations driving global innovation and discovery. And, as challenging as successful management of an academic institution continues to be, we are ever-committed to supporting the fundamental, essential mission of the nation's universities and colleges.
As you continue to extend the frontiers of knowledge, educate and train the next generation of scholars, creators, leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators, we look forward to assisting as your trusted search counsel. As always, we welcome comments and inquiries and the opportunity to discuss the future needs of your campus. We will follow up early in the new year to arrange a brief conversation.
