“The Finney Search Group has a one-of-a-kind capacity to understand a school’s culture and its importance in candidate selection and fit. You all can read culture, and you have the emotional intelligence to read the candidates. That immediately creates a trusting relationship, and once trust is in place you can say what you believe to be true, and I can hear it. Because I respect you.”
