AGB Search helps colleges, universities, and systems quickly secure the services of experienced, well-qualified interim leaders at any cabinet–level position.
We have a large pool of carefully vetted individuals – recently retired or late-career professionals – who are prepared to step in quickly. As a leading national search firm assisting over 100 searches each year, we can also reach out through our extensive network to quickly identify other best-fit candidates.
As every institution has unique needs, we will tailor the process to best serve each client.

AGB Search will work with you to shape and quickly execute an effective interim search and find the best possible candidate. We perform the search on your timetable, providing materials for review immediately on potential candidates from our pool.
Colleges and universities should not have to overpay for search services. Our fees are very competitive, and we also offer package pricing to institutions that engage AGB Search for both interim placement and the follow-on search for the interim’s successor.
You can decide the number of candidates you’d like to consider, through what process, and negotiate compensation and other contract terms with your finalist directly. If, after working together, you and the interim appointee wish to explore a longer-term contract, we welcome that.
