Throughout Spelman Johnson’s 30 year history, we have worked with a wide variety of national associations to fill key leadership positions. In each instance the association was seeking a particular skill set and leadership experience that could move the association forward from that point in their history. From replacing a 25 year veteran executive director to assisting an association in developing its first executive position, Spelman Johnson focuses on recruiting exceptional leaders who bring high-level management and visionary skills to support their members’ agenda. We have built a solid understanding and appreciation for the complexity of issues facing associations today—from advocacy work, to educational programs, to the challenges of financial and business operations–we identify and recruit the talent that will advance your agenda. Spelman Johnson’s robust network of association leaders, our track record of service, and the ability to identify and recruit leaders positions us to effectively partner with your association to deliver outstanding search results.
during our thirty year history, Spelman Johnson has cultivated and supported a diverse, national network of professionals of color within higher education.
