Head of School Search Hires Consulting Firm
Posted 01/29/2019 09:00AM

Dear Bullis Family,

The Board of Trustees has begun the task of identifying the next Head of School for Bullis after Dr. Boarman departs in June 2020. This is our latest update outlining our efforts and progress; we will maintain regular reports throughout the search process.

The Board has engaged the services of Carney, Sandoe & Associates (CS&A), a nationally recognized search firm specializing in Independent Schools since 1977. CS&A was selected after thorough research, interviews, and reference checks. The Board believes Bullis will benefit from CS&A's wide network and their expertise in Head of School searches, as well as the experience and caring focus their consultants will bring to guiding Bullis through this transition.

We are fortunate to be working specifically with Marlene Shaw and Charlie Britton of CS&A. Marlene is a former Head of School at two Independent Schools and has extensive search and consulting experience, most recently at The St. Paul's Schools in Baltimore, MD. Charlie joined CS&A after an 11-year tenure as the Head of School at McDonogh in Owings Mills, MD.

Before taking McDonogh's Head position, Charlie served as Head of School at Casady School in Oklahoma City and possesses a strong understanding of independent schools in the Mid-Atlantic as well as nationwide. Together, they are able to draw upon a broad network of contacts to recruit both a local as well as national pool of qualified candidates for our search.

The Board fully understands the importance of carefully choosing our new Head to lead our School, and we thank the entire community for its support. The Search Committee is committed to a professional, impartial, and thorough process. We will keep you updated along the way.

Very Respectfully,

Kerry Wisnosky
Search Committee Chair

Pat Caulfield
Board Chair
