Our CEO Search Begins…

Finding the right leader for our organization

Dart Westphal, our Interim CEO

Seamen’s Society for Children and Families (SSCF) recently engaged the Support Center to conduct the search for its next CEO. The Support Center’s consultant, Katharine Harris, will partner with, and guide the board as its determines the qualities and skills of the ideal CEO candidate and selects the right leader for the future of the organization. SSCF chose the Support Center after the successful placement of Mr. Westphal as Interim CEO.

The Support Center has been helping to strengthen the leadership and management of nonprofits in the New York City metro region for over 30 years.  Their approach to Executive Search is rooted in the belief that leadership transition offers a pivotal moment to build the capacity of an organization, and they are committed to supporting organizations through and beyond a change of leadership.

Currently Ms. Harris is in the first phase of the search and transition process, assessing SSCF to understand the organization’s strengths, challenges, and needs.  These findings will contribute to the development of the position description and lead into the second phase, which will focus on recruiting and screening candidates.
