Positions We Fill



Transition and turnover at the top or in other key positions has a big impact on organizations. Even when executive changes are planned, leadership and staff have little time to spare, given day-to-day responsibilities and immediate challenges.

Tuft’s executive search consultants can identify the right solutions that meet leadership and staff needs, and in ways that understand and respect your priorities and preferences.

We conduct searches as if we were hiring the employees ourselves. We can do this because we’ve done it: We’ve led organizations and hired key staff. It’s why we take special care to attract only high-caliber professionals. We know what it means to have the right people in the right jobs.


Tuft has completed 140 searches for CEOs, presidents, and executive directors for leading associations and organizations since 1988. We often find respected, top-level executives before they put themselves on the market. Armed with your goals and requirements, we’re proactive and persuasive, connecting you to untapped talent fully prepared for a next challenge.


We can help you build a strong mid-management tier to support your executive team and groom future leadership. With our access to today’s senior management talent pool and more than 330 successful searches, we can pinpoint top directors and managers with the specialized skills and experience to strengthen your core team.


An academic executive search often needs to meet wide-ranging objectives campus-wide. We’re adept at working with search committees to successfully collaborate with academic leaders. We have placed nearly 70 deans and chairs with high-profile nursing schools and for other key posts in academic administration.
