Alford Executive Search

Alford Executive Search is a retained search firm that was established by The Alford Group, one of the largest and most respected consulting firms working with not-for-profit organizations in the country.  Serving more than 3,000 not-for-profit organizations in the past 34 years, The Alford Group launched Alford Group Executive Search in 2000 to meet our clients’ need and demand for executive level staffing and recruiting services.

Today, Alford Executive Search (AES) operates nationally in connection with Kistner Eddy Executive Services, Inc. (KEES) to provide high-caliber retained executive search, as well as other services in the areas of human resources, executive coaching and staffing solutions.  AES remains connected to The Alford Group as a strategic partner, building on thirteen years of collaborative history.  Our expert team is noted for responsiveness, thoroughness and service excellence.  The strategic imperative of AES is to continue to explore, develop and deliver new services to the ever-changing environment of human resources and the staffing needs of not-for-profit organizations and governmental entities across the United States.


Because we know the importance of staffing, each of our consultants has served as a not-for-profit staff leader, board member or key volunteer.  This experience, coupled with extensive training and years of consulting, gives Alford Executive Search the expertise and strategic ability to deliver our services to all segments of the not-for-profit sector, from arts/culture, education, senior living/aging services and health care, to community-based service agencies, associations and foundations.

Our typical searches include Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer, Executive Director, VP/Director of Resource Development, Chief Financial and Chief Information Officer, Director of Marketing, and other key leadership positions.
