Our Advantage
Over 30 Years of Unparalleled Experience

Founded by former college presidents the late Tom Langevin and the late Allen Koenig, The Registry initiated and accelerated a new trend in American higher education—the utilization of outside interim presidents. A decade later the membership and the span of interim positions expanded to include senior administrators.  This expansion occurred when the firm was acquired by Collegiate Enterprise Solutions, which made it possible for George Matthews and Bryan Carlson to join the leadership team. Today, with a membership of 1,000-plus, The Registry has experienced uninterrupted growth and expansion, as it continues to be the dominant firm in the interim executive space.
