Episode 7 Interview with Barry Munitz

Episode 7
Barry Munitz

Today, our listeners are in for a special treat. Our guest is an icon in higher education and is widely regarded as one of the most thoughtful and sage higher education leaders of his generation. Barry Munitz is Chancellor Emeritus of the California State University System and retired President and CEO of the J.Paul Getty Trust.

Currently, he is President and CEO of the Katzen Foundations for the Art of Teaching and for Academic Research. Barry is a font of knowledge about the issues intrinsic to higher education, and we are fortunate that he has agreed to spend time with us this afternoon.

A major factor for our firm’s success is that every search is valued and given unique attention. We steadfastly resist conducting competing searches at the same time… clients should not feel that they are being given pools of candidates who have been spurned by other clients.

Our Principles and Philosophy

Your searches are important to us! We treat each of our assignments with special care and attention and never undertake directly similar searches at the same time to avoid any conflicts of interest. You can be sure we are presenting the best candidates available - not those rejected by other clients

Our Relationship

As facilitator of the search process, we view our relationship with you as a partnership. While we expect to enhance the pool of candidates and provide our best counsel throughout the process, we recognize that decisions regarding selection of short list and final candidates reside solely with you. We believe that our record of successfully completed searches reflects our ability to engender consensus through constructive interaction with the committees with which we have worked.

Our Commitment

Ours is not a commodity business, rather we are a national firm that only conducts searches in the higher education world and only at the highest levels. We undertake only those searches where we have significant experience and which we feel confident we can successfully complete for our clients.
