Susan Resneck Pierce joins AGB Search as "consultant of counsel"
October 27, 2011
AGB Search is pleased to announce that Dr. Susan Resneck Pierce has joined the firm as a “consultant of counsel.” President Emerita of the University of Puget Sound and author of the forthcoming Jossey-Bass book, On Being Presidential: A Guide for College and University Leaders (which is being sponsored by Inside Higher Ed), Susan Pierce has over the past six years assisted ten colleges and universities with presidential searches and a number of others with searches for senior administrators. As President of SRP CONSULTING, she advises colleges and universities on leadership and governance. She also serves as an advisor to new presidents and their board chairs. In her new role with AGB Search, Dr. Pierce will continue to assist colleges with searches.
“I am very pleased that Susan will be joining us," says managing principal Jamie Ferrare, "Susan and I have worked together closely for a number of years, and so I can attest that she commands the greatest respect from the colleges and universities with which she works. In addition, her Inside Higher Ed pieces are widely read by presidents, senior administrators, faculty members and trustees, as will be her forthcoming book on the college presidency.”
AGB Search’s approach combines thorough research with a respect for efficiency, professionalism, and due diligence. In collaboration with presidents, boards, search committees, and communities, consultants develop work plans combining the client’s own knowledge of the institution or foundation with the firm’s expertise in executive search to produce a comprehensive, customized search process. In addition, AGB Search advocates for and assists in the implementation of strong transition planning with the ultimate goal of strengthening institutional and foundation governance in the United States.
As an affiliate of the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, AGB Search draws on 90 years of service and a deep commitment to institutions of higher learning in support of successful searches.
