Max King has announced his upcoming retirement and the 18-member board of The Pittsburgh Foundation is embarking on identifying its next president. In the the first phase of what is expected to be an eight-to-nine-month process, the search committee chose Boston-based Isaacson, Miller to manage the search.
The Isaacson, Miller team will be soliciting stakeholders for ideas and perspectives about the Foundation and the presidential leadership qualities needed for its next chapter. The general plan calls for research to be completed by the end of August, and a position description to be made public by end of summer. Candidate outreach will begin after Labor Day and interviews will run through the end of this year. According to that schedule, the Board expects to be able to announce the new president early next year.
