What Clients Say

“Over my career as a school of medicine department chair, school of medicine dean, and a vice chancellor for health affairs overseeing all health sciences in a large university, I have conducted many searches and have interacted with numerous large and well-known search firms. Of all of these firms, Shelli Herman and Associates, Inc. is at the very top of my list in every respect: thoroughness, efficiency, conscientiousness, courteousness, and plain old ‘savviness’! In addition to these qualities, the firm brought a personal touch to the process that other firms simply did not. Shelli Herman and Associates, Inc. helped us to complete a high-level health sciences dean search quickly and successfully. I will not hesitate to turn to the firm again for future high-level searches.”
