A Leading Executive Search Firm

In 1993, McCormack & Associates was founded to recruit senior leadership for the many AIDS research, advocacy & human services organizations growing exponentially in response to the nationwide pandemic. Often run by volunteers, these organizations were beginning to receive substantial government and private sector funding. All needed top-flight professionals in key management positions, and McCormack & Associates was retained to fill over 100 such positions in its first five years of business.

From the very beginning, diversity recruiting was high on the firm’s agenda, as its clients demanded and expected this kind of leadership to reflect the populations it served by:

  • Race and Ethnic Origin
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Physical Ability

Since the advent of effective treatments for HIV/AIDS, keeping people with the infection healthy longer, and indefinitely in some cases, the need for many of these organizations has diminished. McCormack+Kristel has long since broadened its client base into:

  • Social Justice
  • Healthcare
  • Women’s Issues
  • Higher education
  • Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender
  • Civil Rights
  • Local & County
  • Government
  • Philanthropy
  • Corporate Diversity
  • Board Recruiting

McCormack+Kristel is a member of the Network of Nonprofit Search Consultants, is a National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Certified LGBT Business Enterprise, and is proud to have been recognized by Executive Search Review as “one of
America’s Top 50 retained search firms in the non-profit sector
.”
