Carthage selected the esteemed firm Myers McRae to lead the search for the College’s 23rd President.
The Carthage College Board of Trustees Executive Committee conducted interviews with five well-recognized search firms that specialize in higher education, with a focus on presidential searches. Every firm was well qualified, provided an excellent proposal, and was excited about the opportunity to work on the Carthage presidential search. A theme common to all of the interviews was the belief that the Carthage opportunity would appeal to a high-quality pool of candidates.
After thorough conversation by the Executive Committee, the Board of Trustees selected the firm Myers McRae to lead the search. David Gring, Ph.D., a senior vice president at Myers McRae, is the search consultant.
Dr. Gring recently completed the search for a new president of Carroll University. He also led the presidential searches at Gustavus Adolphus and Concordia College, in addition to many other colleges and universities. Dr. Gring served for nearly 15 years as the President of Roanoke College, a sister ELCA institution. The Board was impressed with Dr. Gring’s vast experience and knowledge of Carthage from his Roanoke days, as well as the extensive resources of Myers McRae. The firm currently maintains one of the largest databases of leaders in higher education, with over 80,000 names and detailed backgrounds on file.
