K-12 / Independent Schools

Lindauer earns high marks from education clients for our ability to identify talented professionals for America’s independent schools and, increasingly, for institutions of secondary education situated in or engaged around the world.

Our Consultants understand the intersections of academics and co-curricular endeavors; enrollment management and admissions; student and residential life; diversity, equity and inclusion; fundraising and finance; operations and marketing; analytics, data, and more. We understand how to explore whether an educational leader, front line fundraiser, or department administrator has the skills to handle complex environments, mature and emerging programs, and intense community engagement.

We will assess leadership and management capabilities, vet ability to create and drive strategy, measure experience to mount large-scale and targeted initiatives, and discern builders from maintainers.

Our global database allows us to engage the best candidates, overcome marketplace obstacles, and successfully make transformative leadership placements or conduct multiple searches for a single institution.

Lindauer has also been a relentless champion for diversity, equity, and inclusion in education – including in independent schools – since the firm’s founding. Our team today continues its leadership and advocacy in equity and anti-racism through our work with Boards, leaders, hiring managers, search peers, a trusted network of industry advisors and consultants, and an extraordinary roster of talented professionals.
