ABOUT ISAACSON, MILLER

Isaacson, Miller was founded in 1982 at a time when not-for-profit organizations rarely used executive search firms. From the beginning, we have been committed to strengthening and diversifying the leadership of the civic sector and our staff members share a fundamental commitment to our clients’ missions.

Today, we conduct nationwide searches across the entire civic sector and across all the core functions of the institutions within it. We have strong practices in higher education, including leading universities and colleges at every tier; K-12, especially in educational improvement organizations and schools of education; science and social science research institutes, both within and outside the academy; healthcare, particularly academic healthcare; environmental defense; foundations; arts and cultural organizations; economic development organizations; human service agencies; and civil and human rights advocacy organizations, national and international. While most of our clients are not-for-profits, we also work with public agencies, and with select for-profit companies, particularly those with ties to education and science, as well as with socially responsible corporations. The firm aspires to contender or dominant status in each of the major fields in our sector. We have a presence in each, in some cases modest, in others substantial.

Isaacson, Miller has achieved an excellent growth trajectory and, in recent years, is consistently ranked among the 20 largest executive search firms in the United States. We have more than 200 employees in our four offices. Revenues for 2017 exceeded $32 million, and we complete more than 300 search assignments each year.
