For 30 years, CTPartners has helped Fortune 1000, NASDAQ, professional and trade associations and not-for-profit organizations build world-class leadership teams. We are known for identifying and recruiting the very best talent in the world to lead organizations representing a variety of industries and special interests.
CTPartners is differentiated by our access to, and in many instances established relationships with, national leaders who impact the causes of their associations and trade groups. As the “chief lobbyists” and spokespeople for their member groups, association executive directors and chief executive officers must be politically sensitive, outstanding communicators, and advocates for their internal and external constituents. In our candidate selection and presentation, we are mindful of the importance of effectively advancing the concerns of relevant constituents/members to the administration, Congress and legislative and regulatory agencies potentially impacting the target industry or cause.
Historically, associations represented an industry’s interests at the local, state, and national levels. With the increasing importance of globalization and continental trade alliances, that equation has changed adding yet another unique element of complexity to the association and trade industry universe.
We recognize that senior executives in positions of responsibility at not-for-profit organizations must serve disparate stakeholders including organization members, staffs, boards, funding and grant agencies, strategic partners and the media. Senior foundation representatives often also need to have demonstrated skill and effectiveness at fund raising and fiscal growth.
Optimal candidates are confident and strategic leaders with exemplary verbal and interpersonal skills. Furthermore, target executives can effectively balance fiscal responsibility, managerial duties and operational excellence while realizing overall business and issue objectives. This candidate universe is also compassionate and able to relate to, and serve the needs of, internal and external stakeholders.
CTPartners offers demonstrated expertise in placing C-suite and executive level executives in leading associations and not-for-profit organizations. Our consultants have broad senior-level experience in the public, private and non-profit sectors, and possess the insider perspective essential to identifying and recruiting top candidates worldwide.
Since 1980, we have placed hundreds of leading association and not-for-profit executive-level candidates whose diverse professional and life experiences significantly contributed to organizations’ growth, stability, culture and continued success.
