CA Begins Search For New President/CEO

October 22, 2020

CA Teams Up With Baker Tilly to Find Next Leader

Columbia Association (CA) is excited to embark on the search for our next President/CEO.

Search firm Baker Tilly US, LLP will assist CA throughout this process, ensuring top quality recruitment.

Current CA President/CEO Milton W. Matthews will end his term as President and CEO in April 2021. The Board of Directors and CA team members express the deepest gratitude to Matthews for his seven years of service and unwavering leadership.

CA President/CEO search timeline

At this point in time, Baker Tilly is interviewing senior leadership and board members about their priorities for CA’s next President/CEO.

Recruitment is set to begin next month. While the timeline is tentative and subject to change, you can expect finalists to be selected by the end of January 2021. Then, the organization will conduct thorough interviews. Finally, we anticipate an employment offer to the top candidate in February 2021.

CA will communicate any opportunities for public input, particularly in the early stages of the search. Those conversations could help define what we are looking for in a new leader.

CA, the Board of Directors and Baker Tilly will keep the identities of applicants confidential throughout this process. Ensuring the anonymity of those candidates can be very important during recruitment.
