Meet Our Team

Meet Our Team

All Associates manage their offices independently and assist candidates within their territory under the Search Associates banner. Because of this decentralization, Senior Associates offer diverse and varied services such as workshops, webinars, administrative searches and consultation on a variety of issues. We see ourselves as a global team working collaboratively to provide essential services to candidates and schools.

In addition to our Senior Associates, Consultants specialize in specific services to schools, our School Coordinator handles all communication with new schools wishing to register, and our Intern Coordinator assists intern candidates. From among this group, our Executive Management Committee oversees the overall organization of Search Associates. Together, our team works tirelessly to maintain high standards in our work with both schools and candidates.
