When our Executive Director unexpectedly announced she was stepping down there were many quick decisions to be made in order to continue business as usual. Once we met with Page Two Partners we had one less thing to worry about. I had no idea that you could hire an Interim Executive Director, but I’m glad you can. Our interim seamlessly stepped into the role and put us all at ease. He managed day to day tasks, identified strengths and weaknesses, and prepared us for a new ED. Being a new board chair, I honestly don’t know what I would have done if not for Danny and Page Two Partners. Tina Kimmey, Board Chair

Our interim executive director is a confident and transformation leader. Her acumen and talent is inspirational. She left our executive team with actionable solutions for tackling the issues we were working on. Her energy and motivation is contagious, anyone who works with her will catch that spark and advance because of it!

Having an interim leader with knowledge of nonprofits and boards was invaluable. To the community and our board and staff, there was nothing ‘interim’ about this quality and focused leadership, accomplishing more on a part-time basis than many professionals would in a full-time position.

I have served on a myriad of non-profit boards of directors and found the insight and the assistance that our interim brought to our organization was invaluable. In each and every instance, our interim Executive Director acted with competence, integrity and professionalism. The insight brought to us was based on vast experience provided a resource that our organization was lacking during our time of transition between executive directors as well as expanding the scope of our service coverage. What impressed me most was the willingness to hit the ground running despite lack of experience with our specific mission area. He proved to be a quick learner and easily adapted what he had learned from his other experiences with non-profit organizations to apply to a business-oriented non-profit organization. The achievements in meeting its goals in that fiscal year are due in large part from the efforts of our interim leader. I would strongly encourage utilizing this service again in the future.

As the board president of Returning Veterans Project (RVP) I recently had the pleasure of working with Mr. Ben Moorad. RVP was going through a program transition and was in need of a new executive director (ED). After hearing from other members of the non profit community about Ben’s abilities and reputation, RVP engaged his services as the leader of our executive search committee. Ben quickly won the support and confidence of our search committee as he laid out the timeline and objectives for our search. By the second meeting, he had the committee’s agenda and timelines set for the next six months. He informed us when and how the process would work and assured us that we would find and excellent candidate once we committed to the task and completed the assignments. Ben did an excellent job of facilitating our diverse search committee, helping us develop a consensus on what qualities and abilities we were looking for in our new ED. He possesses excellent facilitation and time management skills, which kept the committee on task while allowing time to enjoy the process. Ben took charge of setting up our job announcement once we had carefully crafted the wording and structure. Ben assisted us in developing strategies and identifying programs and staff we wanted to contact and get the word out about the position. We would not have been as successful nor gotten the quality of individual that we hired without Ben’s dedication and support. He was an excellent leader and facilitator who guided us through a time consuming process that was richly rewarded. During interviews with candidates, several of them commented on how professional the process was and the respect and consideration they received from Ben. My experience with Ben showed me that he possesses a strong commitment to his community and does so in a caring and professional manner. He is a pleasure to work with and I felt privileged to have had the opportunity to know him and work with him.
