DRG Executive Search Consultants

Created in 1987, DRG has partnered with more than 350 separate organizations and institutions throughout the United States and Canada. Since then, we have successfully conducted over 920 searches, representing a high repeat client relationship rate of which we´re especially proud. Founded solely to meet expanding needs for professional leadership within mission-driven organizations, we continue to address the unique challenges in the nonprofit sector. As a firm who embraces change, we are constantly reviewing our own work and investing in training, resources, and technology to meet our clients expectations, demands, and challenges.

Our work with human service agencies is a significant portion of our annual search assignments. We have recruited CEOs and senior executives for agencies providing services in the areas of children and families, mental health, disabilities and the elderly. In 1992, we were selected by the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) to develop executive search services for their 1,100 member agencies across the country. DRG directed CWLA´s searches for eight years. This unique partnership extended our services to include recruiting CEOs and senior managers for children´s service and human service agencies across the United States. Our executive search consultants who have worked with CWLA-DRG searches have expertise in child welfare and human service management and are well connected to the professional networks in the field.

Right from the start, we embraced computer technology, and over the years we have significantly updated our technology and network to enable us to easily track candidates´ careers, communicate effectively with clients, and automate our business functions.

However, the key to our success has undoubtedly been the high caliber consultants and associates we have attracted to our Group and retained over the years. All DRG consultants have noteworthy nonprofit backgrounds. All consultants subscribe to DRG´s participatory work style where they meet weekly to review and strategize current assignments and to discuss ideas for new methods, techniques, and trends. Although consultants manage their own assignments, they also contribute toward the team concept of helping all of DRG´s clients find the professional leadership that will successfully move them through change and toward achieving new goals.

The firm´s principals encourage personal learning, growth, and volunteer involvement with nonprofit associations. Through in-house training, seminars, and workshops, DRG consultants continue to build their consulting skills that increasingly add to our firm´s collective insight and knowledge bank.

And what about the future? The "business" of leading nonprofit organizations has become increasingly sophisticated, complex, and challenging. And we relish the challenges. We have an outstanding team of nonprofit consultants and the latest technology to serve our clients. In these changing times, the need to go the extra mile has never been more important, and we´re fully prepared to travel the distance.
