After gathering input from Hillel’s many stakeholders, we are pleased to share the final Position Specification for Hillel’s next President (PDF), and to report that many nominations of possible candidates have already been received. Spencer Stuart will begin actively searching for Hillel’s next President and following up on nominations to-date. The Search Committee will remain fully engaged in the search process receiving regular updates from Spencer Stuart and will share updates when possible.
Our objective is to hire a President & CEO who will be available to step into the position in June 2013. The Search Committee has engaged a search firm which has begun to interview stakeholders to develop the announcement that will guide the search process. We expect the announcement to be made public within the next thirty days.
During the search, Hillel commits to the following:
- We will proceed in a timely and thoughtful manner.
- We will listen to stakeholders throughout the search process.
- There will be no interruption in our mission to enrich the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.
- Hillel’s strong team of experienced executives, staff and a dedicated Board will continue to carry out Hillel’s mission and vision during the search.
