Key Advantages

Responsive Timing

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.

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.

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.
