Fisher Leadership Positive Leaders for the Future

Auckland University of Technology has been very pleased to use Fisher Leadership for a number of high level appointments in recent times. In each case we were delighted with the outcome. Significantly, we were impressed with the quality of interaction and the proactive approach of the Fisher Leadership team. They always responded quickly to any questions and requests and we were kept very well informed at all stages of the recruitment process. Candidate briefs were excellent and overall information for shortlisting was thorough and relevant. Working with Fisher Leadership gave us a high level of confidence in the overall recruitment process.

Dr Andrew Codling

Head of Vice-Chancellors Office Auckland University of Technology

I write to thank you and your organisation for your professionalism and the diligent manner you worked with myself and Board in presenting to us an excellent range of candidates. Recruitment of a new Chief Executive Officer is never easy and for us it was at a crucial time for our organisation. At all times we felt comfortable with your professionalism, confidentiality and availability in the manner you and your staff answered our questions and the guidance you provided. We obtained an excellent outcome.

Chair Southwest Healthcare

The Board and the selection committee were very pleased with the outcome and the transition from a long standing Principal to a new one occurred almost seamlessly. Since the appointment of a new Principal the School has had the need to appoint two new Deputy Principals/ Campus Heads. Based on our experience with the first assignment the School engaged Fisher Leadership to undertake both of these assignments. The School now has two excellent Deputy Principals who have the full support of the Principal and the Board.
