"What I particularly like about the way EC works is that not all of the firms were giving us two people. Several of the firms were giving us one real consultant and then somebody in the back office doing research. I loved having access to two sophisticated and experienced consultants from different regions and with different experiences. I thought EC’s process would be fuller, more robust and more rich. And it was.”
– Amy Habib Rittling, Search Chair, Elmwood Franklin School, NY
