In a career spanning more than two decades, Kevin Chase has led dozens of Executive Search & Leadership Transition engagements for a wide range of nonprofit organizations, as well as companies in the finance, technology, and professional services sectors.
Since 2008, Kevin has worked exclusively in the Not-for-Profit Sector, serving clients in the Human Services, LGBT Advocacy & Social Justice, Healthcare Philanthropy, Education, and Arts & Culture sectors – all with a focus on Diversity & Inclusion.
Kevin established Kevin Chase Executive Search Group in 2015 with a simple vision in mind: to help advance the vital work of mission-based nonprofit organizations by providing transformational leadership solutions and talent. Immediately prior to launching his own practice, Kevin was Managing Director in the Los Angeles office of Diversified Search, a top-ten, global, retained search firm, partnering with clients in the Nonprofit and Higher Education sectors.
Previously, he was a Partner with McCormack & Associates, a boutique search firm and recognized leader in Diversity & Inclusion search. The majority of Kevin’s engagements are for Executive Director/CEO, Senior Development, and Board positions, though he has also conducted searches for C-Level leaders of Finance, Operations, and Programs. Kevin has particular expertise in working with small- to mid-sized, mission-driven nonprofits, providing consultation and advisory services to the Boards and Leadership Volunteers responsible for governance and organizational development.
His holistic approach to these engagements encompasses all elements of leadership transition: from the assessment, strategy, and stakeholder engagement that precede the launch of a search, all the way through to the on-boarding and integration of the hired executive.
