Deeply Strategic. Intentionally Inclusive

Anise Search provides a deeply strategic, intentionally inclusive  search experience for clients seeking visionary executive talent. Our process is comprehensive and holistic, reflecting our years of experience in civic, nonprofit, higher education, and theological spheres. 

What you can expect from an Anise Search experience:


Anise Search believes in trusting the process. We begin every search with a targeted research strategy that will guide recruiting. Once the strategy is approved by the search team, it is accompanied by a short-term calendar for remaining on-time and on-target. If necessary, we can make amendments to the strategy and calendar, but overwhelmingly we find that our process consistently leads to the right results.


Anise Search’s north star is research. Research is unequivocally the backbone of all good executive search. Our team includes seasoned researchers who bring diverse backgrounds, relationships, and experience recruiting within education, faith-based institutions, arts, social justice, and youth development.


Anise Search is a Black woman-owned firm committed to leveling racial and gender inequities in executive leadership. Identifying and centering change-agent leadership that has historically existed on the margins is fundamental to every  executive search process.


Pathways to leadership emerge from consistently persistent and transparent dialogue. From the first day of our partnership until a placement is made, Anise Search will remain in continuous dialogue with you, your partners, peers, and stakeholders to surface the quality of talent that will not only accentuate what is currently working well, but engage and catalyze new levels of innovation.
