Koya Leadership Partners
Koya Leadership Partners was founded in 2004 on a single belief: The right person in the right place can change the world. That belief has evolved into a guiding philosophy for the entire firm. We are deeply committed to the idea that the right leader — with the right support and resources — can transform an organization and have a deep and measurable impact on our world.
Over the last decade Koya has conducted hundreds of executive searches across the United States and around the world. Our team has grown, our methodology has sharpened, and the range of services we offer has diversified. But we have never strayed from our mission: To help nonprofit organizations achieve their missions by providing customized, strategic, and innovative support and services for acquiring and retaining exceptional talent.
