The synergy of these two firms will enable Shepherd Search Group to continue to grow their nonprofit business, an area of rapid growth for the company. According to David Gantshar, President & CEO: “Over the last decade, Shepherd has acquired twelve of the strongest niche firms in the business. By adding Joel Paul Group to our all-star team of recruitment firms, Shepherd will continue to grow as a market leader in each of our specialized disciplines.”
