Executive Search

To find leaders that matter for missions that matter, we identify and recruit top talent using the following resources:

  • The latest business disciplines and research tools employed by traditional for-profit executive search firms.
  • Unwavering passion, tenacity and commitment to mission that’s familiar and integral to the non-profit sector.
  • Unbridled creativity to frame our searches in new and unexpected ways.

Most BoardWalk searches are national in scope; most clients, even those serving local missions, request a comprehensive search into multiple geographic markets. We routinely work across the U.S.

Over half of our searches are for CEOs, often for leaders succeeding iconic, long-serving CEOs. We do numerous other C-suite searches (chief development, finance, operations, program and other officers) and searches for a variety of other senior roles in vastly different nonprofit contexts.

Our clients benefit from the diversity of our engagements, and from the real-time, ongoing laboratory of experience they provide.
