DeEtta Jones and Associates Introduces Executive Search Capabilities

Chicago, IL, June 22, 2017– A leader in organizational development and culture, DeEtta Jones and Associates will now offer executive search capabilities as an additional service for their public and academic library clients. DeEtta Jones and Associates announced today the launch of its new executive search capacity which will complement the suite of services the firm has been providing over the past two decades, including organizational strategy, leadership development, equity, diversity and inclusion.

“During our work with libraries, we have been asked time as time again to consider partnering to help identify new talent for library leadership. We are thrilled to now be able to respond to that need” said DeEtta Jones, founder and principal consultant. “We are looking forward to facilitating the recruitment and hiring process to ensure that our partner libraries find diverse, visionary and engaging directors to lead them into the future.”

What sets DeEtta Jones and Associates apart from other search firms is the team of consultants who are actively working in the profession, bringing with them their extensive knowledge and relationships. The executive search team is led by Gary Wasdin, who brings with him over 20 years of experience in both academic and public library administration.

“One of the things I’m excited about is the ability to include additional value-added services to the search process,” says Gary. “We can provide organizational change readiness, to prepare the library for a new leader, and executive coaching for your newly hired director, giving them the support they need to transition into a new organization.”

DeEtta Jones and Associates is committed to diversity and inclusion in all of its work. Working with the firm will ensure a diverse candidate pool that truly represents the best in the profession.
