In addition to financial and opportunity costs, the loss of a top executive or key professional can take an incalculable toll on any organization. Add the time it takes to update job descriptions, execute search plans, follow up with referrals and references, pore through resumes and schedule interviews—and the process can feel completely overwhelming.
With our team’s deep nonprofit background and extensive professional networks, along with a quiver of powerful tools and software, we make the hiring process more effective and more manageable for busy leaders like you.
The best part? Our advisors have been through this process as executive directors, board members, search committee chairs, leadership team members, and of course consultants. Our team has experienced transition from every angle—so you’ll feel supported, equipped and empowered every step of the way.

Executive Transition Management
New leadership can be the turning point in the life of any organization. To prepare for a change in executive leadership, we employ our proven change-management program: Executive Transition Management (ETM)*.
This program was developed by national thought leaders and experts in the field of organizational development, nonprofit capacity building, and executive recruitment, to reduce the risks associated with nonprofit executive leadership transitions, while increasing prospects for long-term success.
*Armstrong McGuire was the first firm in North Carolina to adopt this model. We were fortunate to be funded in our training by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, and trained in implementation by the model’s principal architects.
Whether planned or unplanned, our team brings the experience you need to guide your organization through a leadership change.
When a member of your leadership team departs, an interim leader can help your team continue forward with continuity and strength.
