PPIIN CEO Search Brief Update

with one comment

Another quick post to provide an update on the PPIIN CEO search, which I hope provides some transparency to the hiring process (which typically requires a high level of confidentiality for applicants).  The leadership of the Center for Public Interest Journalism (the PPIIN project’s host organization) continues to be encouraged by the high level of interest from top-tier candidates in the public interest news and information field. The PPIIN search committee has interviewed candidates over this summer, with 12 being involved in either first or second round interviews from a national pool of prospective candidates of over 85.  While we are actively engaged with existing candidates, the search firm, Opus Partners, continues to surface interesting, qualified prospects, which is not uncommon in a wide-ranging search.  Because of this, the search is expected to continue into the autumn.   I will plan to continue to provide updates here as the search proceeds, and please feel free to post/email questions.  Thanks as always for your interest in the project.
