"As a board and search committee member for the Executive Director position for the NC Network of Grantmakers, I was impressed with Elinvar's team approach to help develop and elicit a clear vision for a leader from our committee and recruit and evaluate a highly qualified and appropriate list of candidates.  We now have an excellent Executive Director due in large part to Elinvar's efforts."

"We announced our new executive director to senior staff, staff, media, clergy, and stakeholders. Everyone, including our retiring ED, has been so upbeat and excited!

"Since my introduction to Elinvar over 10 years ago, I continue to be impressed by their approach to providing quality service to their clients. In my case, this has both been as an employer building high-quality teams and as an individual needing advice. Elinvar has been a great partner on both fronts. I have engaged Elinvar when searching for top talent to add to my team as well as for team development and alignment. I have found that having one firm that really understands what I value in terms of talent, team building and leadership development has had a real impact on my success as well as benefiting my organization."
