Home / Executive Search / Potrero Group, Director of Executive Search

Potrero Group seeks an accomplished executive search professional to lead our growing practice. 

Potrero Group is a fast-growing boutique consulting firm working at the intersection of the business,  nonprofit, and government sectors. Our work is wide-ranging, with specific expertise working with mission-driven organizations in the environmental, conservation, and public lands sectors. We provide strategic and business planning, executive search, organizational assessment, training, and custom research services. 

Potrero Group’s executive search practice has grown by a factor of three over the past three years, fueled by our deep expertise in the conservation field and our track record of success. We believe that organizational strategy and search are deeply connected. We work across both spaces. We facilitate the search as a pivotal organizational transition and engage key partners and supporters in the search effort. We work beyond the “usual suspects.” We deliver extraordinary candidates who push the boundaries of what our clients thought possible.

We seek an accomplished executive search professional to lead our growing practice. The Director of Executive Search will be a facilitative leader who will thrive in Potrero’s client-centered, flexible working environment. The position requires maintaining a balance between external business development responsibilities and managing multiple client projects and project teams, ensuring high-quality outcomes are delivered on time and within budget. We are seeking an experienced search leader possessing strong interpersonal capabilities in addition to being a proven people and project manager. With overall accountability for all aspects of the executive search process, the ideal candidate will bring tenacity and a sense of curiosity and fun to building and growing Potrero Group’s search business.

We believe that representation matters, and diverse experiences and perspectives strengthen our team. Instead of a culture fit, we seek a culture add—new approaches, experience, expertise, and identities that allow us to find exceptional candidates who can lead organizational change and growth.


Remote. Potrero Group has been an all-remote company since its founding in 2011.


A competitive compensation package, including a growing benefits package, will be offered based on experience. This position's anticipated annual salary range is $140,000–$155,000.
