Who We Are

Spano Pratt Executive Search is a leading privately-held executive search firm providing exceptional proven results securing top talent for our employer clients.  We conduct searches for leaders at the CEO/President, Executive Director, Vice President, and Director levels of nonprofit organizations.


Why Retain Us

Our Business Strategy.  It’s relationships. Since our firm began, we have focused our strategic energy on building deep relationships with our clients.  This has resulted in successfully cultivating quality versus quantity search assignments. This strategy has benefited our clients by providing fewer blocks of “off-limit” candidates who are currently employed with former or client companies.

Diversity and Inclusion.   It’s intentional and a commitment Since beginning the firm over 20 years ago; the goal was and remains a commitment to deliver a diverse slate of candidates in every search.  Over the past three years, over 50 percent of our firm’s placements have been diverse (people of color and/or women).  We partner with nonprofit employers who understand the importance of hiring a leadership team that reflects the community it serves.


Communication and Process. It’s thorough. Our constant communication throughout the search and our ability to drive the process quickly to fruition is a key benefit for our clients.

We are Fun and Easy to Work  With.  We have fun.  We love what we do and we can help you find the joy in transition.


Cultural Fit. We get it. The ability to identify and match a candidate to the employer’s culture is one of the key differences that sets us apart from electronic recruitment companies or large faceless search firms.

Talent Network.  We create the magnet. Our strong network of exceptional leadership talent, a robust database with over 40,000 active and diverse professionals, and our research expertise to identify those hard-to-find people moves the search process along quickly.
