Charles,

I can recommend Next Generation (http://itleadersearch.com/).  They have extensive experience in higher education and are excellent to work with.

I would encourage ALL universities contemplating hiring a search firm to look at this from two perspectives: (1) how well the search firm serves the university, and (2) how well the search firm treats the candidates in your pool (through all phases of the search, not just the final 3 campus visitors). Check references on both sides.

Search firms are acting as your initial ambassador to your school and their performance has a direct bearing on how individuals view your school.

Like me, I'm sure many of you on the list have either heard or directly experienced extremely unprofessional and disrespectful behavior by the search partners (or junior partners) to individuals in the pool. 

I personally keep track of firms that I would or would not use based on this secondary performance behavior. 

All my best,

Dewitt

Remember, a lot of those people are on this list. Hopefully they will follow the list guidelines and not contact you directly as a result of your note, but if you want to invite them to do that, you'd probably get a bunch of responses. I would say that the fact that they follow this list would mean that they're in touch with higher ed tech and make them worth looking at. :) - Mark -- Mark Berman, Chief Information Officer Siena College 515 Loudon Road Loudonville, NY 12211 (518)786-5000, Fax: (518)783-2590 Siena College is a learning community advancing the ideals of a liberal arts education, rooted in its identity as a Franciscan and Catholic institution.

I second what Joe said about Next Generation, and can also recommend Carrie Coward at Summit Search Solutions (http://www.summitsearchsolutions.com/). 

I also strongly agree with Dewitt's comments about looking at how the firm treats candidates, as well. Having recently been through a search in which I dealt with a number of search firms, there is a real difference and some were horrible to deal with, as a candidate. Whether or not it was the firm itself or the institution driving the process behind it, the experience definitely colored my perception of the hiring school.

My 2 cents,

Rae
