Introduction

Opus Partners is an independent executive search firm founded by consultants who have worked together since 1999. Opus conducts senior-level searches nationally and internationally for clients in higher education and healthcare. Our clients - universities, colleges, academic medical centers, foundations, and research institutes – advance missions in education, research, patient care, and philanthropy.

The mission of Opus Partners is to apply the expertise of search consultants with deep experience in a range of leadership and management functions to a concentrated set of clients in our core industry sectors in order to provide a thorough, transparent, and highly professional recruitment process.


Three beliefs guide our work:

  • Clients deserve the complete involvement of experienced recruiters in every phase of the search process.


  • Thorough evaluation of qualified candidates informed by deep understanding of the client organization is key to the successful selection of new executives.


  • Long-term relationships between clients and consultants rest on mutual respect and understanding; the delivery of a search process that is transparent as to strategy, progress, costs, and results is the best way to strengthen this relationship.
