The Non-Profit Personnel Network was founded in 1994 by Gary Dembs as a retained executive search firm, exclusively serving the national nonprofit sector.  Gary has been serving the sector as a consultant since 1987.

Recognized as a leader in the industry, NPPN is the only firm of its kind in Michigan and one of few nationally.  We are a proud member of the Network of Nonprofit Search Consultants (NNSC.org).  Our work is guided by our mission and core values of honesty, integrity and reliability.

VISION STATEMENT:

To strengthen the national nonprofit sector through the recruitment and placement of top-quality personnel, and provide reliable counsel positively affecting organizational dynamics through team building.  We connect people and institutions, valuing both, so that each reach the highest levels of philanthropy.

SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY:

NPPN values the role that nonprofits play in building and supporting communities. Each NPPN staff member is a community volunteer.

COMMITMENT TO OUR CLIENTS:

Nobody matches NPPN’s commitment to our clients’ mission.  We demonstrate that commitment by providing expertise and counsel at affordable rates and in an efficient manner.

COMMITMENT TO OUR CANDIDATES:

NPPN respects the important role that each candidate plays in the executive search process.  In recognition of their importance, NPPN honors its candidates by valuing their privacy and providing them career counseling and procedural information throughout the search process.
