The Kentucky Department of Education has hired an executive search firm to lead the search for Kentucky’s next education commissioner.
Florida-based Greenwood/Asher, specializes in leading executive searches in the education arena. The firm headed up the searches for former Kentucky Education commissioners Terry Holliday and Stephen Pruitt.
Betty Asher, one of the firm’s partners, told KBE that the firm will continue its work during the current COVID-19 pandemic because the firm does much of its work online.
“We have to work a little bit harder,” Asher said. “… If we get high-quality candidates who are engaged and want to move forward in the process, I certainly think we can present everything you need.”
