Executive Search

Advancing the Humanities

Lindauer has deep experience and a passion for providing retained executive search and talent services for the world of arts and culture nonprofits, from distinguished organizations to emerging efforts. Our work has included major global institutions and world-class museums, thriving regional and community arts organizations, leading orchestras and symphonies, vibrant performing arts venues and university museums, and arts education in both secondary and higher education contexts.

We place leaders and build out teams. We understand audiences and members, community and civic engagement, regional contexts, and shifting resources. Our expertise enables us to recognize inherent opportunities and challenges and to identify the qualities required to achieve outcomes. We have expertise in finding candidates who have the skills, talents, passion, and experiences necessary to work effectively with key constituents including artistic personnel, curatorial staff, program producers, educators, invested boards, and leading philanthropists.

Our team also recognizes the critical role of inclusion and access in arts and culture. Lindauer has been a relentless champion for diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in nonprofits – including in the arts and culture arena – 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.

Let us help your organization recruit + retain top nonprofit talent

“What impressed me most with Lindauer was the professionalism and quality of the process. It was clear that they had expertise in securing executives and had a process that balanced a highly personalized approach with a strategic plan for finding the best candidates. I felt they were vested in our success — our Board Chair commented that Lindauer understood our needs so there was a tremendous amount of trust — and they didn’t disappoint.”

– Melia Tourangeau, President and CEO for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
