Leadership Services


When it comes to serving the hiring needs of nonprofits, we don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach. ABN works closely with your board, guiding it in defining your future leadership and management needs. We’ll also help you identify the specific leadership talents and skills required of your next CEO based on your strategic goals. Then, we support your board throughout the comprehensive search, including recruitment, screening, interviews, negotiation, and closing the deal. LEARN MORE
