Professional Changemakers

Lindauer has decades of experience providing retained executive search services for leading U.S. and global nonprofits in the advocacy, policy, and social enterprise arena. This includes environment and conservation; public health and social services; veteran support; elder, youth, and human service; civil rights organizations; foundations; global NGOs; and more. Our extensive expertise includes serving organizations large and small, from distinguished to emerging efforts.

We place leaders and build out teams. Our work has ranged from Presidents, CEOs, and Executive or Regional Directors, program leads, and front-line development and marketing professionals. Lindauer team members have served as executive leaders, senior management, and human resource professionals in a myriad of nonprofit contexts. We intimately understand the relationships that exist between affiliate, chapter, and national offices and the qualities required to achieve outcomes across these contexts.

Our team also recognizes the vital necessity for organizational leaders to represent and be the voice for the communities they serve. Lindauer has been a relentless champion for diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in nonprofits since the firm’s founding. Today, our team continues its leadership in the advocacy for equity and anti-racism work with boards, leaders, hiring managers, search peers, a trusted network of industry advisors and consultants, and an extraordinary roster of talented professionals.
