Executive Search Firms
The Colorado Public Employees' Retirement Association (PERA) Board of Trustees seeks proposals from executive search firms to assist the PERA Board in hiring the next Executive Director. The search firm will assist in conducting a nationwide search and screening of potential candidates. Proposals should include descriptions of your firm's executive search process, the general evaluation criteria typically employed by your firm in an Executive Director or Chief Executive Officer search, the services that your firm will provide regarding candidate assessments and negotiations, and any other relevant information.
Throughout the RFI, ‘Executive Director' refers to the most senior position at Colorado PERA reporting to the Board of Trustees. In other organizations, this may be the Chief Executive Officer. To facilitate this search, the PERA Board has appointed a Search Committee of PERA Board members, led by Taylor McLemore, Search Committee Chair. Finalist firms will be interviewed by the Search Committee. View the RFI.
To be considered, your proposal must be submitted no later than July 14, 2023. Please only submit one electronic version via email to:
Attn: Rebecca Harren, Director of Human Resources
Your firm may be invited to present your proposal to members of the PERA Board of Trustees. PERA will communicate with you once your proposal has been received and reviewed to provide additional details. PERA anticipates that a decision on selection of the finalist firms to present in person will be made by July 28, 2023.
