  • As an executive recruited by Freeman Philanthropic Services, I enthusiastically endorse their work. Throughout the exploration process, every staff member I interacted with was articulate, insightful, responsive and highly professional.  While the needs of the hiring institution drove the search, Gail and her staff were clearly committed to advancing everyone’s best interests and aspirations.  The depth of their engagement and passion for results that impact the non-profit sector in an enduring way distinguishes Freeman Philanthropic Services as a recruitment resource.
