CASE Launches VP Search for Two Strategic Leaders

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Council for Advancement and Support of Education is currently recruiting for two senior-level positions: vice president, international operations and vice president, strategic communications.

CASE is seeking senior leaders to succeed Amir Pasic, who is now dean of the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, and William Walker, a higher education strategic communications expert who is retiring after more than 40 years of experience in the field.

Richmond Associates, a global executive search firm, is coordinating the search for the vice president, international position. The closing date for applications is Friday, June 12, 2015. The Ward Group, an executive search and organization consulting firm, is conducting the search for the vice president, strategic communications. Applicants should submit a letter of interest and resume to info@wardgroup.com. The closing date for applications is Monday, June 15, 2015.

Sue Cunningham, president of CASE, says the two vice president positions are exceptional opportunities for the right candidates to provide strategic direction and support for a strong international association.

"As part of the senior leadership team at CASE, the vice president, international and vice president, strategic communications will play a vital role in building on CASE's strong tradition of providing products and services to our members while also helping to envision the future of this dynamic association," Cunningham says. "It is an exciting time to be a part of CASE and its camaraderie of loyal volunteers and support of our worldwide institutional members."

Cunningham noted that the two positions are also opportunities for those who are interested in making a difference in the changing environment for education worldwide.

"It is important to focus upon the need, now more than ever, to help promote the strengths of our institutions, to grow private financial support, engage alumni and build understanding about the work that we do," she said. "CASE has the means to make that difference."
