A Successful Record Speaks for Itself

The Registry’s record speaks for itself—nearly 600 placements at nearly 400 institutions of all types. Since 1992 The Registry has been helping colleges and universities across the country and abroad during times of transition with experienced and diverse interim leaders. These interims are not place holders, they are active, contributing members of their adopted academic community. They solve problems, meet challenges head on and move institutions forward.


“An interim gives us the time to be deliberative in that search process because we know that the person who is filling that role from The Registry is not just keeping the seat warm. They are experienced in that role and they help move the agenda… It also helps to give us the opportunity to have somebody who, because of their own credibility and experience, can provide us with some objective advice. That person can, with setting all politics aside, tell us what they think of the people, the organization, really any topic, and you know that the advice that you’re getting is entirely objective.”

Stew Uretsky, EVP Finance and Administration, Brandeis University

"[The Interim] worked very effectively with the incoming president, consulted with him on continuing changes after the new president had been announced and did all he could to enable his successor to assume leadership with confidence. For the third time, I would recommend him without question. If possible, we would designate him as Interim President Emeritus for his outstanding work."

Dr. Peter Garland, Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer, Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education

“The level of quality of service from The Registry is similar to the Ritz Carlton or Disney. Whenever we have had a question or a comment, The Registry and the personnel associated with The Registry have been very quick to respond, very quick to provide answers and have been very professional in dealing with us. We have been able to move the process forward quickly and efficiently because of the professionalism of The Registry.”

John J. “Ski” Sygielski, Ed.D., President, HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College

"Importantly, [the Interim] provided the leadership and management needed to oversee the Advancement division. He did this with a high level of collaboration, professionalism and data-informed decision making.  He was instrumental in overseeing the year-end fundraising goals and conducted a staff retreat which set the tone and plans for the next fiscal year, setting a sound stage for the permanent Vice President’s arrival.  He was a collaborative partner with the President’s Cabinet and developed several policies which had been needed in Institutional Advancement.  I found [the Interim] to exceed expectations with his leadership and establishing a new tone for the entire area under his responsibility."

Dr. Suzanne Mellon, Former President, Carlow University

“I thought the process [with The Registry] was really easy. What was really exciting to me was while we didn’t launch a national search, it felt like a national search…we still had a portfolio of very qualified candidates…to the point that it was really difficult for us to make the decision. After talking and sharing what we needed, The Registry sent top level candidates to chose from which made us feel much more confident about the process…we knew we were in good hands.”

Ty Stone, Ph.D., President, SUNY – Jefferson Community College

"The mission of the Registry, as well as its measured outcomes, is an outstanding "value added" to the American higher education enterprise. I was blessed to benefit from the many and valued prior experiences of a former president and provost, who served in an interim capacity at my institution. My Registry colleague was able to hit the ground running and bring all the talent and experiences of prior positions to bear. Our entire college community benefited from the one year Registry appointment that ended up as a two-plus year assignment."

Kathleen Owens, PhD, Former President, Gwynedd-Mercy College

“In some instances, it’s possible to bring in an interim who has particular or unique experiences that help us get through a particular transition at an institution…going to an entity like The Registry for the interim has made a ton of strategic sense for our institution… One piece when working with The Registry impressed me right from the start was the organization’s willingness to work within the constraints of the procurement challenges that we face as a state entity and with state-wide rules and regulations on contract limits…The Registry was very flexible.”

Don Christian, President, SUNY – New Paltz

"I would use the Registry again in a heartbeat. It was, as it turns out, just the perfect partnership and provided value to the university far, far in excess of the standard fees requested."

Dr. Steven A. Stargardter, Former President, JFK University

“It became very clear to me, honestly within the first few months [of my Interim’s placement], that it was going to take me more time to figure out what I needed in the permanent position, and I was not yet ready to really launch a search. So, I worked with The Registry…and extended it into that second year…We had a number of crises that we needed to manage and of course, Covid. That third year proved to be absolutely critical given everything else the university, leadership and faculty were having to do.”

Maureen O’Connor, Ph.D., J.D., President, Palo Alto University

"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."

Nancy L. Zimpher, Former Chancellor, State University of New York

“The Registry has helped us with the Provost role, VP of Enrollment, VP of Human Resources as well as our VP for Institutional Advancement interim roles…I feel very confident in the quality of service and support we receive through The Registry and I’m incredibly pleased by the talent in terms of the pool of candidates and also ultimately who we secured in an interim role.”

Mark Thompson, Ph.D., President, Wentworth Institute of Technology

"I want to thank you personally for the kind attention you paid to helping us find an interim candidate with the abilities we needed. I have found the entire experience working with you and your team at the Registry to be very professional and enjoyable. Clearly we couldn’t have had a better experience or found a more qualified and competent interim without your help. Thank you."

Mark A. Nook, Former Chancellor, Montana State University Billings

“In large part because of the great vetting process and because of the robust interview process, both of our Registry placements have been excellent mission fits to the institution, and they’ve also been excellent colleagues on my President’s Counsel. Here are two folks who have come in from the outside, they’ve been tasked with specific things, they have to get up to speed very quickly…and they’ve done a good job of doing that. They’ve also fit in seamlessly with the President’s Counsel…The Registry colleagues have become good colleagues, in some cases good friends, and there has been a nice meshing of the personalities and a nice mixing of the group.”

Father Malachi Van Tassell, T.O.R., Ph.D., President, Saint Francis University

"This was the first time our college used the Registry to fill an administrative position. I was very pleased with the quality of the candidates that were identified for us, and I had no hesitation in filling a subsequent interim positions through the same process."

Nancy Kleniewski, Former President, SUNY Oneonta
