Trilogy Search To Head Board Search For EdSource

Burlingame, CA (September 17, 2013) — The executive search firm Trilogy Search Non+Profit will lead a Board of Directors search for EdSource, a nonprofit research, policy, and communications organization established more than three decades ago.

The EdSource Board is comprised of leading representatives of key education constituencies dedicated to ensuring that all children receive a high quality education. The board has sought the services of Trilogy Search Non Profit as part of a strategic plan to broaden its membership to include constituencies that can assist the organization as it moves in new directions in response to a transformed communications and digital landscape.

“This Board opening comes at a pivotal time in our organization’s development, which coincides with the implementation of major new education reforms in California and nationally,” said Louis Freedberg, EdSource’s Executive Director. “Based on Trilogy’s track record and expansive networks in the nonprofit and for profit sectors, we are confident the firm will identify extraordinary candidates to ensure that EdSource continues to have an impact on shaping policies and public discussion on successful strategies  to improve student outcomes.”

Chuck Pappalardo will handle the assignment on behalf of Trilogy.

Trilogy has worked with EdSource previously and has advised numerous nonprofit and education-focused organizations on talent acquisition and related needs.  These organizations  including Book Trust, Education Sector, Santa Clara University, Stupski Foundation, and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

EdSource is based in Oakland, Calif.
