Chris Bryant established BRYANT GROUP in 2002 building on his 13 successful years as the co-founder and President of AST/BRYANT, the country’s first search firm to recruit exclusively in the development profession. The foundation of BRYANT GROUP's success is built on Mr. Bryant's 15-year career as a development professional and 30 years of experience in recruiting exclusively in the advancement and development professions nationally and internationally.
Recognized as the premier search firm in Talent Recruitment for advancement professionals, BRYANT GROUP is also independent of any relationship with other consulting firms. We can better serve our clients and their unique requirements because we maintain our objectivity as search counsel, without the confusion and conflicts of interest inherent in affiliation with fundraising and campaign management consulting firms.
BRYANT GROUP is proud to have been the industry leader in representing its clients only on an exclusive fixed-fee retainer basis, instead of charging a percentage of the hiring salary. Due to our fixed fee, we can provide objective counsel regarding salary requirements wihtout the inherent or perceived conflict of interest of making an additional fee when your position requires a higher salary.
The firm is strongly committed to both the spirit and the letter of the law regarding equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. As such, we conduct client search activities in accordance with the nondiscrimination, equal employment opportunity and affirmative action legal principles provided for in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related federal and state statutes.
BRYANT GROUP maintains professional memberships in the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) and the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), among other professional societies of the Independent Sector. A founding member of The Network of Nonprofit Search Consultants (NNSC), the firm strictly adheres to the Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Practices of the Association of Executive Search Consultants.
