JF&CS Chooses Isaacson, Miller to Conduct SEO Search   

CEO Search Update
March 2019

We are pleased to announce that we have chosen Isaacson, Miller, a nationally known, Boston-based search firm to aid us with our search for a new JF&CS Chief Executive Officer.

In February and March, a Search Firm Selection Committee composed of Board President Jamie Grossman, Vice President Andrew Pearlstein, and Vice President Steve Weil, identified and interviewed search firms with the requisite credentials to perform the search. Wendy Wilsker, Senior Vice President of Institutional Advancement, and Carl Zack, Interim CEO, served as valuable staff to our committee. We interviewed four firms and ultimately selected Isaacson, Miller because of its long-standing reputation for conducting successful searches on behalf of numerous local Jewish communal organizations, as well as academic medical centers and human service organizations.

We are also pleased to announce that we have assembled a Search Committee to work with Isaacson, Miller. The members are:

  • Jamie Grossman, Board President
  • Andrew Pearlstein, Vice President
  • Steve Weil, Vice President
  • Alexandra Simes, Board member
  • Shari Cashman, Board member
  • Mark Belsky, former JF&CS Board member and long-time supporter of the agency
  • Neil Wallack, former Chair, Combined Jewish Philanthropies Board of Directors
Isaacson, Miller began its work by spending several days in a "discovery" phase at JF&CS's offices interviewing staff, Board members, and other constituencies, to better understand our culture and the qualifications and expectations we have for a new CEO. Isaacson, Miller then prepared a Position Profile based on the information collected during the discovery phase. 

The firm is currently searching for qualified candidates and helping us screen and interview them. The entire process is expected to take approximately six months. We will keep you informed as the search unfolds.
