    "The entire university family could not be more pleased with the skill and acumen of this firm. Their collective decades of experience in higher education were evident at every stage of the search. They worked extremely well with university staff, the search committee, and most importantly, the university trustees charged with selecting the president. The result of their outstanding work and guidance was a nationally visible search, run on time, and without even a single thread of discontent or drama."
