Frankie Lemmon School and Foundation

"A perfect match! A partnership with Armstrong McGuire was exactly what we needed to lead us through a critical transition in leadership. They spent time understanding our needs and used that knowledge to clarify the profile of our new leader and identify great candidates. They arranged the interviews in an organized fashion and confirmed each one in advance. Their counsel to our search committee, board and staff was terrific as we vetted top candidates and on-boarded our new Executive Director, who has been a wonderful fit. The Frankie Lemmon School is in a great position to sustain and grow our programs thanks to their help!"
