Aspen Leadership Group and GOBEL Form Partnership

A belief that Relationships Matter is at the core of our work at Aspen Leadership Group (ALG). In partnership with the entire ALG Community, ALG supports exceptional careers in philanthropy, strengthens the advancement profession, and enhances philanthropy’s impact on society. We are thrilled to share that our capacity to pursue these aspirations has grown, thanks to a new partnership with GOBEL to support healthcare philanthropy. We invite you to read more about this exciting new relationship, below.

Marrying the Right Talent to the Right Program for Increased Revenue

Aspen Leadership Group , the leading executive search firm serving philanthropy across the nonprofit sector, is pleased to announce a partnership with GOBEL, the world’s leading firm in consulting and technology serving healthcare philanthropy. The new collaboration is designed to provide healthcare organizations with the most effective and comprehensive way to build diverse, high-performing fundraising teams and maximize productivity and revenue growth.

“Aspen Leadership Group is focused exclusively on careers in philanthropy,” says Founding Partner & Senior Consultant, Ron Schiller. “All of our senior search consultants have spent 20 or more years working in the field of development. As former chief development officers, we know how challenging it is to get both the right team and the right program in place to maximize fundraising results. Through our work in search, our goal as individuals and as a team remains to help philanthropists and the organizations they support have the greatest possible impact on society. Tapping the additional expertise and insight of GOBEL, we are adding another dimension to our work, strengthening our capacity to place excellent development professionals in a context where they and their programs will thrive.”

“The work of executive search firms and consulting groups has been supporting clients to grow talent and results, but too often at different stages in an employee’s relationship with the organization,” said Chad Gobel, Chief Executive Officer at GOBEL. “Today, we are thrilled to announce a partnership that will marry the services of search and consulting to provide clients with a seamless and comprehensive approach to finding the best talent, maximizing their productivity, and avoiding lost revenue.”

ALG and GOBEL’s first partnership program is called “Accelerate.” By combining the talents of both companies, Accelerate will provide clients with a solution to: (1) place a GOBEL consultant into a new or open position in an interim capacity; (2) assign an ALG consultant to begin a search; (3) link GOBEL’s insight from its interim role to support ALG’s efforts in finding the best candidates; (4) and utilize GOBEL and ALG resources to support successful candidates’ onboarding and first year’s work through a combined set of training, coaching, and mentoring experiences.
