Global consulting firm Heidrick and Struggles International has announced that two of its leading consultants in the area of education and social enterprise practice will be heading up a New York team which will service the arts and culture sector in that city. The Education & Social Enterprise (ESE) Practice team will offer executive search and leadership consulting to a variety of social enterprises in the arts, culture, education and social services areas.
The firm believes that their timing is prescient given the current economic difficulties in the US, which they expect to persist for some time. In this difficult environment more organizations are recognizing the need for innovative approaches to social challenges that bridge the gap between the nonprofit and commercial sectors. The blend of experience from the two sectors can provide clients with superior solutions to the unique challenges they face.
