Every organization’s performance is the sum of its people. As such, our mission is straightforward: source the highest caliber talent from across the nation for our San Diego-based clients.

Blair Search Partners is a retained executive search and recruiting firm, serving corporate, nonprofit, and public-sector clients. In particular, we offer unique specialization and unparalleled experience serving not-for-profit organizations of all sizes and sectors. Our clients retain us to manage search engagements at all levels, including c-suite, director, manager, and program/staff levels.

While each search engagement is customized around the needs of the individual client organization, we place equal emphasis on the candidate experience throughout the entire process. Today’s candidate could very well be tomorrow’s customer, volunteer, donor, or board member.

Our work is not finished until the board has a finalist candidate who not only meets the job requirements, but that the board is also excited to work with, and proud to have as the keeper of your legacy.

We don’t think of this as the business of recruiting: to us, this is the business of community building.


Trevor has 20 years of experience in recruiting, workforce development and community-based initiatives.

Leveraging this experience, Trevor launched Blair Search Partners LLC, a specialized executive search, recruiting and talent development firm, serving the needs of nonprofit and public-sector clients. Trevor is deeply engaged in the San Diego philanthropic community, serving on numerous boards and committees for organizations such as LEAD San Diego, San Diego Workforce Partnership, Barrio Logan College Institute, and the Lotus Credit Fund.
