Partner, Academic Practice
With 13 years of executive search experience, Colleen has led many successful senior level searches for educational and health care organizations, government, and the broader not-for-profit sector. Although her focus is on search in the academic sector, Colleen credits her background as a public affairs executive in the natural resources business for her expertise in facilitating and bringing together divergent views and opinions.
Prior to becoming a search consultant, Colleen served as Vice-President of Public Affairs for Falconbridge Ltd., and as Vice-President of Communications and Public Affairs for the YMCA of Greater Vancouver. She has worked as a lobbyist, representing both corporate and non-profit clients, and as a communications assistant to a Member of Parliament. Colleen holds a B.A. from the University of Toronto.
Colleen takes the time to get to know her clients’ needs and the cultural nuances of their organizations. She is known for the support she provides to both clients and candidates throughout the search process, and for her commitment to delivering outstanding service and results.
As educational institutions continue to fight for their position in a changing economic and social model, leadership talent becomes a critical factor in success.
