As announced on July 3, and after careful deliberation, the Presidential Search Committee retained Russell Reynolds Associates to assist with our presidential search.
Russell Reynolds Associates is a global search and leadership advisory firm with more than 400 consultants in 46 offices working with nonprofit and for-profit organizations across all industries and regions. Anne Coyle and Jett Pihakis are the Russell Reynolds principals who will work directly on the Gettysburg College presidential search. Anne and Jett are members of the firm’s Higher Education Practice and have conducted more than 20 presidential searches for colleges and universities across the country and many other academic searches for provosts, deans, and vice presidents.
Anne and Jett work with search committees to develop robust and diverse candidate pools. Presidential searches recently completed include the University of Delaware, Fairfield University, and Carnegie Mellon University. With the help of Russell Reynolds, the PSC plans to conduct a rigorous and thorough search that will last several months.
