National Executive Search for Nonprofits
What Differentiates Us?
Meng Peeps conducts executive searches across the country. We specialize in searches at the highest leadership levels. Unlike large search firms whose business is driven by volume, ours is driven solely by quality and the reputation that comes with it. As a small firm, we only take on as many searches as we can do excellently. If our bandwidth at any time is too limited to perform at that level, we forego additional opportunities. For us, referrals and repeat assignments are the best measure of our work.
Another distinction is that the Senior Partners do every aspect of the work themselves. There are no junior staff behind the scenes to whom the work is handed off. Two Senior Partners are assigned to each search, which means that we vet candidates together, resulting in richer assessments. At least one Senior Partner is always available, and we believe communication is key to a successful outcome.
Finally, our Partners were nonprofit executives in earlier careers, so we often have walked in candidates’ shoes. Candidates are more likely to respond to us because they know we understand their profession. And because we have often done their work ourselves, we can quickly evaluate their strengths relative to the position.
At Meng Peeps we are committed to the equitable selection of a diverse panel of candidates in keeping with the intentions of our clients. We strive to be inclusive by using an integrative approach, presenting candidates with a wide range of cultural backgrounds while incorporating different experiences and viewpoints.
Candidates are identified through existing, trusted relationships built over more than 25 years, as well as a proactive sourcing strategy which includes organizations focused on diversity. We strive to present diverse candidates on each search assignment.
At Meng Peeps, we pledge to continue to foster a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging with the clients and candidates we serve.
