Search firm retained to help find new CEO
The Delaware Community Foundation has retained Kittleman & Associates, a national search firm, to assist with the search for the foundation’s next president and chief executive officer.
Kittleman & Associates, a firm focused exclusively on senior executive searches for public charities and foundations, will help the DCF board of directors identify the successor to Fred C. Sears II, who recently announced that he will retire effective Dec. 31, 2015.
“Our goal is to identify the individual who will best be able to lead the foundation forward, building on the significant legacy of Fred Sears,” said Thomas L. Sager, vice chair of the DCF board of directors and chair of the recently formed search committee.
In addition to Sager, the DCF search committee members are co-chair Kelly Firment, Doneene Damon, Marilyn Hayward, Bill Dugdale, Don Nicholson Jr., Laurisa Schutt and Cindy Szabo. All inquiries and applications should be directed exclusively to Kittleman at (312) 986 1166 or www.kittlemansearch.com.
