The placement of Interim Chief Human Resource Officers (CHROs) is central to the mission of The Registry. The Registry is the nation’s best source for senior interim leadership. We place Interim Presidents and Chancellors at public colleges and universities; community colleges and state systems offices; and private colleges and universities including faith-based and minority-serving institutions. Highly experienced Registry Interim Vice Presidents of Human Resources (VPHR) have a significant and positive impact on personnel recruitment, retention, professional development, and workforce engagement. Registry Interim CHROs are prepared to introduce and support best practices related to personnel recruitment, retention, professional development, and workforce engagement. Registry Interim VPHRs enhance the performance and productivity of an entire academic community.
The Registry’s success in delivering the right interim leaders to the right institutions is built upon a proven, four-step process:
We work closely with you to gain the knowledge and insight to find candidates who fit your goals. They will review materials and consult directly with your board chair, president and other key decision makers.
We offer a pool deep with talent. Our members are already vetted by and contracted to The Registry and can be ready on short notice to assume interim positions.
We help you make the right choice. A Registry principal will travel to campus with your chosen finalists to participate in a customized and collegial selection process.
We help you manage expectations. A Registry principal will develop an expectations document that identities your challenges and priorities and establishes accountability for your new interim administrator.
“Several SUNY campuses have used The Registry to fill immediate leadership needs with success. I applaud The Registry for their careful selection of experienced leaders to its ranks and providing this valuable service to campuses that need it.”

"I have found the Registry an invaluable resource at critical junctures. Professional, responsive and discrete. They have my unqualified endorsement"
Steve Titus, President
Iowa Wesleyan College
"I have invested over four decades of my career in the Academy in an effort to improve the fiscal health of each college and university I have served. Being a member of The Registry provides me with the opportunity to continue to serve in an interim now that I have “retired”. These interim assignments allow me to contribute to a wonderfully diverse array of institutions, leveraging my fiscal and leadership experience to make a positive difference."
Mr. Bill McGarry
Current Member of The Registry
"As many staff members said during the formal search process, 'we wish we could keep [the Interim]!' I concur...I have been very pleased with the responsiveness and quality of my interactions with The Registry, and, if needed, will utilize their services in the future. "
Dr. Jo Alice Blondin, President
Clark State Community College
The Registry achieves positive results because it is built upon a foundation of Gold Standard Best Practices for engaging external interim leaders:
The Registry offers the best pricing model—our fees are incurred on a monthly-only basis. They will be roughly equivalent to your institution’s established budget for salary and fringe benefits for the duration of our interim service.
