Leaders of the Indiana State Bar Association are beginning the process of finding a new executive director.
The ISBA Board of Governors has retained Waverly Partners LLC, a national executive search firm, to assist in the search for the state bar’s next executive director. Tom Pyrz, who has led the organization for 25 years, will retire from his post at the end of 2017.
ISBA Immediate Past-President Carol Adinamis will chair the 11-member Succession & Search Committee, which will work with Waverly to identify qualified candidates.
“Waverly Partners consultants will meet with our committee and a number of the association’s leaders and key constituents to develop a profile that will outline the experience and leadership characteristics of our desired candidate,” Adinamis said in a statement through the bar. “Our committee is open to executives with backgrounds in other bar associations, business associations, economic development organizations, other kinds of nonprofits, private sector or related experience with a commitment to our mission.”
