  • Sarah just completed a search for our new CEO at a leading Bay Area charity. As search committee chair I worked closely with Sarah and found her performance outstanding in all respects.  She quickly gained the confidence of each committee member and provided us with a number of truly exceptional candidates. Sarah clearly did her homework in screening the candidates and providing the committee with relevant background information well in advance of our interviews. Each of us always felt totally prepared. Sarah is a consummate professional who does her job exceptionally well.  I, and I’m sure each of the other six committee members, would highly recommend her for senior level non-profit searches.
