St. Bonaventure University engaged Gonser Gerber last spring to conduct the search for a new Vice President for Advancement. Our search was characterized by efficient use of the committee’s time and energy, careful vetting of candidates and an accelerated emergence of a top candidate. The committee chair found the support of our Gonser Gerber consultant invaluable and the smooth working relationships provided a foundation for dealing with the inevitable highly sensitive interactions that a cabinet level search often includes. In short, the outcome was optimal for St. Bonaventure University.
