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.

We meet your timetable. 
Two months or more: AGB Search will work with you to shape and quickly execute an effective interim search and find the best possible candidate.
Less than two months: We can perform an expedited placement, providing materials for review immediately on potential candidates from our pool.

We will assist also with additional reference and background checks on finalists.

We offer competitive pricing. 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.

We offer unrivaled flexibility. 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 as an indication that we’ve done our job effectively.
