We would like to take a moment to introduce ourselves and provide some insight on the executive search we are commencing with Fleming College for their new President.

Phelpsgroup is a Canadian executive search firm that recruits leaders with compelling combinations of competencies, experience, vision and character to contribute to the fulfillment of an organization's mission and vision.  Over the past 30+ years, we have become a leading executive search firm with a proven success profile in delivering leadership solutions for colleges,  universities, and school boards as well as for the broader public and private sectors.  Phelpsgroup defines success as much more than identifying options: we tailor our search to putting a spotlight on excellence to view potential candidates through a diverse lens that identifies local, national and international talent. We have been privileged to match extraordinary leaders with exciting and dynamic opportunities within colleges across the country.

Heather Phelps and Heather Connelly from Phelpsgroup will be leading this search – working with Fleming College and its Board of Governors' Search Committee to recruit and recommend a President to the Board of Governors for official appointment into the position.

This undertaking by Fleming College represents important leadership change for everyone within and connected to the college – in the communities of Peterborough, Lindsay, Haliburton and Cobourg. Therefore, we are seeking your insight to establish the mandate, key characteristics, attributes, and experiences we should be identifying in candidates for the position. We will ensure complete confidentiality of all respondents - we report only "what was said" not "who said what".

The information you provide will help the Search Committee understand your views on:

· The role and mandate for a new President, Fleming College;

· Key challenges and opportunities to be addressed by the new President;

· Strengths of Fleming College that will help a new President be successful;

· The desired characteristics of the successful candidate.
