Our Story

Morris and Berger Leadership Meeting

Morris & Berger is a nationally respected boutique executive search firm that collaborates with nonprofit organizations to find leadership talent that will thrive.

The nonprofit sector is our passion. Since Kristine Morris and Jay Berger formed Morris & Berger nearly 35 years ago, we have helped turn strong candidates into transformative leaders by placing them in a variety of nonprofit organizations. Through our experience, knowledge and in-depth understanding of the sector, we know that the right individual can shape the future of an organization.

Finding this individual is our promise and we are deeply committed to delivering on it. Our team of seasoned professionals approaches every project as a collaborative opportunity. We build strong relationships with the organizations we serve and consider ourselves an extension of their teams. Forming a partnership with them from the start, we guide a collaborative and transparent process from beginning to end. We take time to understand the dynamics of their organization and adapt and tailor our search to their needs and goals.

Finding candidates who will strengthen and transform an organization means supporting a culture of diversity and inclusion. Our role is to serve as a facilitator to the search process and a provider of a rich, diverse and qualified candidate pool. This approach supports the mandate by which we live: To serve each client by identifying and recruiting the best possible candidates for a position, not simply the best available.

We are Morris & Berger and we partner with today’s nonprofits to find tomorrow’s leaders.

We bring a deep level of specialization to the table and have a keen eye for identifying the unique attributes a leader in the nonprofit space should possess. Enabling our clients to flourish with the right team and leadership is something we achieve through being excellent listeners, communicators and responders, to both our clients and candidates, every step of the way. Our goal is to make our clients successful and provide candidates with a career they love in an organization where they reach their full potential.
