The San Diego Foundation has entrusted Blair Search Partners (BSP) to fill numerous roles at our organization over the years, including Program Specialist, Fund Manager, Chief Development & Stewardship Officer, Chief Impact and Partnerships Officer, and my own recruitment as The Foundation’s CEO. Having worked with BSP as both a candidate and as their client organization, I continue to be impressed. Their alignment with our mission and values, dedication to both the candidate and client experience, and focus on inclusivity and diversity all make a significant difference.

 

Most recently we turned to BSP for a critical new position created on our senior leadership team, the Chief Impact & Partnerships Officer. This role was pivotal to the launch of our updated strategic plan, focused on deepening connections with our nonprofit partners and the communities we serve. BSP built a search process around diversity and inclusivity that delivered an exceptional pool of talented candidates. With this new addition to our executive leadership team, we have significantly increased our capacity for thought leadership and serving as agents for social change across our communities. In working with Blair Search Partners, I have experienced their authentic connection to our work, their appreciation for the potential impact of each new hire, and their dedication to finding us the best possible talent.

Blair Search Partners really delivered on their promise to find a ‘WOW’ President & CEO for the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara! BSP was wonderfully collaborative and insightful throughout the search process and worked tirelessly to keep us on track. The result was a very disciplined and thoughtful process that led to a very exciting outcome. I would not hesitate to bring BSP in on future searches.

Working with Blair Search Partners was the difference in me attaining a career-advancing opportunity. I had failed in three previous attempts to secure an executive-level position and lacked confidence and skill in the interview process. In just 20 minutes of working with Trevor and his team, they changed my whole perspective on the process, how to present myself, how to answer questions, and to show up in the most genuine way that conveyed my abilities and personality to the employer. Needless to say, I have now advanced my career.

With an abbreviated time frame of four months, Blair Search Partners did an outstanding job of guiding us through the process of hiring an Executive Director. Even during COVID, they kept us apprised of every step, from assessing our organization’s unique needs to the final selection of our new executive director. Our search team was engaged throughout this period, and we are thrilled with our selection.

I have worked with Blair Search Partners both as a candidate and as a client, and I have been very impressed with the outstanding work they do, their attention to detail, and most importantly, how they succeed at reaching the desired outcome. At the end of the day, you want to match the right candidate with the right job, and that requires a lot of listening, and understanding the goals and expectations of the organization, as well as the individual. Blair Search Partners has been a true partner to me and our organization in this critical process.

Contacting Blair Search Partners was the very best decision for Boys & Girls Club of San Marcos. All of the candidates we interviewed were extremely qualified to fill our role of Vice President of Operations. I’ve never had a pool of candidates of such high caliber. The process was quick, easy and enjoyable. The team really listened to what we needed and delivered! Thank you, Blair Search Partners, for helping take our organizations to the next level.”
