Advancing Strong Infrastructures

For years, Lindauer has been an innovator in the industry in embracing and promoting the vital role of data, analytics, AI, and strong systems infrastructures in the nonprofit sector. As a trusted search and talent partner to major organizations across education, health and science, arts and culture, and a wide range of advocacy organizations and global NGOs, our consultants understand the powerful role of analytics and data leaders in advancing the purpose of nonprofits. As experts in assessing leadership and behavioral qualities, in testing for technical skills and proven expertise, and in discerning builders from synthesizers, we identify leaders who are positioned to meet organizations where they are and propel them forward.

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.

“The search for a Vice President in the arts, specifically opera, is highly specialized, and this was one of the smoothest search processes I have ever been involved in.  I was impressed with the diversity in our candidate pool and felt that our Search Team members were true partners in the process.  I wanted Lindauer’s expertise and extensive database to find the best candidate for this leadership role, and they did not disappoint.”
