Associate Managing Principal
As Rod McDavis, fresh from a 13-year term as the president of Ohio University, steps in as managing principal of AGB Search, the firm now seeks an associate managing principal (AMP) who will partner with McDavis in the growth of the firm. It seeks nominations and applications for that post, with a start date this summer.
AGB Search is a wholly owned, independently managed subsidiary of the Association of Governing Boards (AGB). It was founded in 2010 and operates as an LLC. In seven short years it has grown to encompass the search efforts of 35 senior consultants, 11 research associates, and a DC-based office staff of nine. The firm’s approach pays high heed to ethical practice, shared governance, and affordability. For more, visit agbsearch.com.
AGB Search looks to an AMP for leadership along three dimensions. Working from the Washington office, the AMP will be expected to develop a significant search practice, assist in fashioning a new strategic plan, and help refine office functions that support consultants and client institutions. High skills in written and oral communication and in work with groups (boards, search committees) are essential. Top candidates will have experience in search and insights into a changing higher education landscape.
The firm has developed a Prospectus for the position, available at https://www.agbsearch.com/sites/default/files/AGB-S%20Prospectus.pdf, with more information about the organization, position, and this search. Applicants should review that Prospectus and note the instructions on its final page.
