Grundmeyer Leader Search
ISFIS and Grundmeyer Leader Search have partnered to help Iowa school districts recruit, interview and hire leaders that fit best with your district’s values and goals. Grundmeyer Leader Search got its start two years ago, with Trent Grundmeyer at the helm, conducting full searches and supporting boards by identifying desired qualifications in candidates, recruiting highly qualified leaders who fit the school’s requested guidelines, and managing the overall hiring process. With the new partnership between ISFIS and Grundmeyer Leader Search, newly hired administrators receive access and insights into their district’s financial health and history through a comprehensive financial review with ISFIS personnel, ensuring a smooth and informed leadership transition.
