Lexington Medical Center engaged Gonser Gerber for its search for Executive Director of the Foundation. Our Gonser Gerber consultant was most adept at helping the senior leadership team define the skills, abilities and personal attributes we needed to compliment the operational needs of the Foundation department.  I’ve worked with a number of executive search consultants over the term of my career, and this is one of the finest.  The key attribute that sets my Gonser Gerber consultant apart is his listening skills.  He spends a great deal of time upfront learning the organization and – more importantly – the people and the culture to insure the best fit for the candidate and the company.  He set up a search schedule and met each deliverable.  He developed a search profile that generated a diverse group of candidates, conducted a thorough screening and presented comprehensive candidate profiles.  It was apparent that his primary objective was driven by his desire to find a great match, and not just to fill the job.  He kept us informed each step of the way and followed through on each of his commitments.  His career expertise as a fund raising professional not only offers access to excellent professionals, but provides keen insight into the attributes necessary to succeed in this industry.  I would certainly recommend Gonser Gerber for any Foundation level search your organization may need.
