Veteran executive recruiter Denise Grant will leave Russell Reynolds this month, she told CEO Update. Grant, the head of the firm's Washington, D.C., office, plans to take the summer off and consider new opportunities in the fall.
“I told our CEO at the beginning of the year I wanted to wind down,” she said.
“I had a great 10 years, I met some great people and worked with the most interesting leadership and board issues around the world. It’s hard to imagine what I could do that’s more interesting than what I’ve done,” she said.
Grant recently placed Rob Nichols as CEO of the $91 million-revenue American Bankers Association and has found leaders for the Smithsonian Institution, the Kennedy Center and the National Geographic Society in the past 18 months.
