Barbara Gabel/Client, Board Chair, EBay SPCA
Executive Vice President, Zachary‘s Chicago Pizza Inc./Berkeley CA

Articulate Integrity very much lives up to its name. As a Board member of the East Bay SPCA I participated in the search for a new Executive Director for the organization. Kerry Enright and her team at Articulate Integrity did an outstanding job in assisting us with this important decision. Because of them our search was not only highly successful, but it was also an enjoyable and interesting process. I give Articulate Integrity my highest recommendation.

Kile Ozier, Executive Producer/Client/Colleage – Amnesty International

I have worked with Kerry in several contexts; from serving on a board for which she was the E.D., to working shoulder-to-shoulder on a number of intricate projects. Having the word, “Integrity,” in the title of her company could not be more appropriate: no one in my experience exemplifies working with integrity than does Kerry. Furthermore, Kerry exudes a calm energy that brings out the best in people; and her creativity – whether focused on process or product – is remarkably nuanced. Her management style is one that inspires and motivates in lieu of command; and tends to yield results as close to vision as humanly possible…sometimes even more.

Walter Collins, President and CEO, United Way

It is an honor to officially endorse Kerry Enright. Her professionalism, her attention to detail and her embodiment of what it means to have integrity has served as an inspiration to me. Without Kerry’s direct advocacy and professional support, my professional life would be far inferior today. I wholeheartedly recommend Kerry’s professional services to any interested parties.

Caroline Griswold, Senior Associate, National Writing Project, BD Chair, Streetside Stories

Our Board hired Kerry as a consultant to lead our executive search process, and we were fortunate that she later accepted our invitation to serve as Streetside Stories’ Interim Executive Director. Our Board and staff give Kerry our highest recommendation. She worked closely with our transition committee to train us in the elements of a successful search, managing to simultaneously keep our stress level down and expectations high. As Interim ED, Kerry was able to implement important infrastructure changes while guiding the organization through the transition. Her recruiting skills were exceptional, yielding a candidate pool of outstanding caliber and fit. Kerry was the consummate consultant, working efficiently and effectively on our behalf to deliver a smooth Executive Director transition.

Tom Bruein, Former BD Chair, Nonprofit Board of Directors, Stop AIDS Project, San Francisco

Kerry brought so much knowledge and value to the table that I felt like our whole board received an education. She kept us on track, gave us options to stay within our budget, and brought candidates to us who would not have otherwise found us. Most important for our tight-knit field, she helped build goodwill with all of our applicants. I even had people we turned down stop me to comment what a breath of fresh air Kerry’s professionalism was. I would hire her again in a heartbeat!

Eileen Blumenthal, Owner, Rocket Science Coaching & Consulting

Sister Liz Schille
Board President, Good Shepherd Gracenter

The Board members of Good Shepherd Gracenter hired Articulate Integrity to help us find an Executive Director for our AOD Program. The work that they provided to us was thorough and professional throughout our process. We knew well how the process would proceed with time lines, etc. I personally felt that we received excellent services from Articulate Integrity. They were able to keep the Search Committee on track, they provided us with good candidates for interviews and a good process for decision-making. They were helpful in giving us an assessment of our program prior to hiring and appropriately involved our staff members. I/we were pleased with our work with the firm and with the consultant they provided for us.

I worked closely with Kerry when she was Executive Director of the National AIDS Memorial Grove through the earliest days of inception until the project was well under way. I served on the Board of Directors and worked closely with Kerry in the area of development and strategic planning.

Given the size of her staff at the time and the challenges of building a new organization, Kerry did an exceptional job.
