Greenwood/Asher & Associates


Greenwood Asher & Associates (GA&A) is a full-service, retained search firm founded in 2004 by Dr. Jan Greenwood and Dr. Betty Asher, who have both served as tenured professors and university presidents. They have shared their deep understanding of the organizational structures and challenges within higher education with the GA&A team. This shared knowledge has provided a solid foundation for our continued growth through evidence-based process and commitment to diversity. Their pioneering spirit has created opportunities for hundreds of leaders during the past 30 years. 

GA&A believes that successful searches are accomplished through trusting relationships with clients and candidates, and by offering comprehensive and customizable search processes that deliver effective outcomes. As a result, GA&A has a notable repeat client rate – a testament to our acuity, expertise, and longevity. 

GA&A is now one of the premier education executive search firms within the United States.  Our results-driven team of highly trained consultants possesses the specialized skillset to both recruit future leaders and deliver prompt, clear communications to clients and stakeholders. 

In 2020, GA&A joined forces with Kelly® Education. We now leverage the strength of our parent company to offer strategic search partnerships throughout the continuum of education.
