It was a pleasure to work with Ray & Berndtson. We had a couple of very senior positions to be filled, and we achieved a shortlist of good leaders in a short period of time. In addition, the discussions we had to convert the positions along with the options generated made the executive search and onboarding much easier. Ray & Berndtson's personal attention and dedication towards the assignment is greatly appreciated.

Ray & Berndtson is committed to the communities in which we live and work. Therefore, the scope of our services would be incomplete without a similar commitment to serving the not-for-profit sector, which is a critical component of our society.

The search committees of cultural, educational, social service and other not-for-profit organizations rely on the expertise of Ray & Berndtson's professionals around the world to identify the strategic leadership required for their unique environments. We assess the organization and its management style, develop an understanding of our clients and are able to identify outstanding executives who not only possess the expertise, commitment and diverse skills required but who also have the personal and professional qualities and characteristics to be effective in that culture.

Ray & Berndtson is proud of our longstanding relationship with many of the world's finest education and not-for-profit organizations.
