Detroit's Harvey Hohauser & Associates Grows Non-Profit Practice As Sector Demand Increases

Leading retained executive search firm Harvey Hohauser & Associates has expanded its not-for-profit team with the appointment of Manager, Candidate Development Ashley Picklo, on the back of steady growth in the non-profit sector nationally.

According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics, just over 1.5 million non-profit organizations are operating in the USA. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the sector outpaced the national job growth average by 2.7% between 2000 to 2010, and is the third largest labor force behind retail and manufacturing, employing 9.2% of all US workers.

"Non-profit work is vital, especially to communities with stressed local governments struggling to provide basic civic services," said Todd Hohauser, President & COO of HH&A.

"During the recent financial crisis the non-profit sector was strongly impacted by declining contributions and government cut backs and hiring at the executive level was down sharply. However, as we see the economy improve non-profits are again looking for exceptional leaders to fill positions that had been 'on hold'.

"Ashley brings a keen understanding of and insight into the non-profit industry based on her extensive experience working in the sector, combined with a degree in business administration and finance from the University of Detroit Mercy.We are delighted to have her on board."

Harvey Hohauser & Associates has developed the academic training and empirical background required to identify dynamic management talent for over 26 years. The team has an understanding from both sides of the non-profit spectrum and a wealth of board experience including Homes for Autism, The Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan, Eton Academy and The Boy Scouts of America. As Lead Consultant for HH&A's non-profit, foundation and association search practice, Bill Weatherston has grown their capabilities significantly in a half dozen years calling for this expansion in staff.

The consultative retained search process at HH&A allows for ideal placement, regardless of organizational size or culture, applying experience and first-hand knowledge of what works, especially with non-profits.

Headquartered in Troy, Michigan, Harvey Hohauser & Associates is committed to helping organizations retain upper level management candidates and achieve their leadership goals, offering worldwide search through its membership in IIC Partners
