Capital Development Services has been named the UNC system's search firm vendor of choice for all advancement searches in the system's 17-campus institutions since 2011. Working closely with several of the UNC system schools, CapDev has successfully led searches for top executives at NC A&T State University, UNC Charlotte, UNC Pembroke, UNC School of the Arts, and Western Carolina University in recent years.
When UNC Charlotte contacted CapDev for help with a search for a Director of Planned Giving, it was a critical time for the university who was preparing to launch a major university-wide campaign. Not finding the candidate pool they had hoped on their own, UNC Charlotte contracted CapDev. Having had a good experience with the feasibility study CapDev conducted for its Belk College of Business, UNC Charlotte was pleased to continue the relationship through the search, and was pleased as well with the outcome in a successful new hire. The best compliment a client can give is that they say they look forward to using CapDev search services again.
"Having tried to undertake a search for a Director of Planned Giving on our own and getting very little interest or viable candidates, we contracted CapDev to conduct the search. Through research, networking and connections, they were able to uncover a deep pool of high caliber candidates, and we made the hire we needed. We were very pleased overall, especially with CapDev's strong communications and status updates to keep us involved as partners in the process."
