TM2 Executive Search is the brainchild of former HBCU Presidents and minority leaders who have now dedicated themselves to building capacity by identifying and developing the next generation of minority leaders, with an initial focus on the Black College Community.

We provide search services designed to build a pipeline of minority leadership. Our real-world experience and relationships give us a unique perspective in understanding the challenges and significance of building a diverse workplace.
Our Advisors engage candidates in our leadership development and coaching program. This program is designed to assist in navigating careers and reaching their full leadership capabilities. The program uses Gallup assessments and “one-on-one” mentoring to create a solid foundation for success.
Our success is not defined in a roster of completed searches, but rather by the quality and development of the leaders. Vastly different from the majority of the search industry whose primary goal is to provide only search services, we are passionate and committed to the continued success and development of minority leaders after the search.
We initiate a customized and comprehensive search process for the specific requirements and needs of the institution. The knowledge and expertise of our principal consultants will provide a strong foundation in engaging and guiding the search committee to produce a successful result. A summary overview of the standard process is listed below. A more detailed description of the vital steps is provided at the time of the engagement.

As African American academic leaders, who have had the privilege of serving the HBCU community, we know our schools and passionately believe in them. Our experiences range from senior faculty to Presidents/Chancellors. TM2 Executive Search is an opportunity for the utilization of our collective insights, knowledge, and wisdom gained throughout the years in support of the HBCU Nation.
I joined TM2 Executive Search because I believe my background and experiences allows me to recruit and select the type of talent needed to lead Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) in the 21st century. HBCU's are in need of diverse, qualified, committed, and strategic senior leadership with vision and foresight. This is an awesome task and one that I am committed too. As a graduate of two HBCU's, and one who spent 19 years as president of two HBCU's, one twice, I know I bring a set of skills and unique experiences to this undertaking. I am excited about the possibilities!
