Nonprofit Executive Search Expertise-
We’ve Got It, We Get It

Some people think, “I can relax, slow down a bit…and work in a nonprofit.” They are wrong. Nonprofit organizations are highly complex. Unlike commercial enterprises, nonprofits have a vast array of stakeholders who must be considered when filling senior professional and executive roles-internal leaders, boards, vocal supporters in the community-they all want their say. Pick any nonprofit and you’ll find this to be true.

At Dise & Company, we know how to navigate the challenges unique to nonprofits to deliver the best long-term talent for your organization. Nonprofits have unique missions, passionate staffs, demanding boards and devoted funders. We have met many talented leaders from high profile organizations and lesser known nonprofits you may never have heard of. We have faced challenging recruiting assignments in Northeast Ohio and throughout the United States.

It’s a fascinating process. We learn about your organization by talking with clients, service deliverers, funders, board members, volunteers and other stakeholders. We then develop a compelling job specification that reflects the role, priorities and challenges offered by the position. We learn how to tell your nonprofit’s story. Then we become your ambassador sharing your story with prospective candidates, most of whom are not actively looking for a new job.

We generate intense interest in your organization while maintaining strict confidentiality, presenting to your search committee only qualified candidates. Best of all, we handle everything, including references, interviews and background checks. We take seriously the heavy responsibility of searching for and recruiting nonprofit executives and leaders.

Search committees have a very tough job! Most committee members have not had formal training on talent evaluation. Instead, they have excelled in other areas of expertise. Talent recruitment is rarely one of those. Dise & Company brings specialized skills to ease the burden placed on search committees and senior executives.

We have spent decades building national networks and learning how to become a leading nonprofit executive search firm. We’re proud members of the Network of Nonprofit Search Consultants (NNSC), a North American group dedicated to finding the best talent to lead nonprofit enterprises.

We have successfully recruited many highly effective nonprofit executives. Let’s talk about how we can coach your search committee. Contact us to see how we can find your next dynamic leader.
