Is your social impact organization facing leadership succession or other strategic hiring needs?

 

You’ve come to the right place.

 

Welcome to Peter Gray Executive Search.

 

Leadership hiring is fraught with stress, challenges and risks. But it’s also an opportunity to renew your social impact organization’s capacity and unlock new, maybe even unimagined potential to serve its mission. For nonprofit boards of directors, there is no fiduciary responsibility greater than securing your nonprofit’s future by hiring the right leadership.

 

Let’s get started.

Leadership succession and strategic hiring for social impact employers

Welcome to Peter Gray Executive Search.

I'm a recovering Wall Street recruiter who now recruits social impact leaders and fights bias in hiring.

I've guided nonprofit organizations and social impact employers through 24 leadership successions and many more strategic hires.

 

I also train employers on diversifying hiring outcomes, and coach individuals on overcoming bias in job search and career advancement.

 

Let’s get started.
