WELCOME TO DRG
With over 26 years of experience, DRG has established a national reputation
as a firm that specializes in recruiting for the nonprofit sector. We
have worked throughout the United States conducting searches with nonprofit
organizations from a wide variety of fields.
We are a firm committed to recruiting executives who possess the experience and leadership qualities necessary to help nonprofit organizations manage change and achieve their goals. We believe that with creative professional leadership, organizations will succeed in building the resources and services that can have a positive impact in communities around the world.
We selected our niche in the nonprofit sector because we believe that without excellence in professional leadership, nonprofit organizations could not succeed in delivering important services. We want to make a difference in this area by striving to be leaders who are knowledgeable about nonprofit leadership. We want to help clients develop new ways of thinking about each hiring challenge and guide them through informative successful recruitment efforts.
