Chicago, Illinois-based Atlantic Research Partners recently joined forces with Jim Huge & Associates to maximize seamless delivery of intensive executive services to schools and school leaders across the nation and globally.
Atlantic Research works closely with multiple school districts, charter school networks and philanthropic foundations nationwide while Huge & Associates have conducted numerous school superintendent and other talent searches, as well as organizational improvement projects in hundreds of school districts worldwide.
"It is an immense honor for us to join forces with my mentor, Jim Huge—one of the education profession's most accomplished and respected developers of school executives," Atlantic's Chief Executive Officer Joseph Wise said.
The newly combined organization will provide more research-based and keenly targeted searches for school board members, school superintendents, CEOs, other chief-level positions as well as school principals and other purposeful and effective leaders.
"The opportunity to join forces with Joey Wise and his talented team is truly exciting," Hugh said. "This is a powerful merger as the capacities of two deeply committed teams come together to make an even greater difference on behalf of students and educators through the preparation, placement, and support of school system leaders. Joey's passion for learning, intellect and boundless energy will lead all of us in creating innovative and powerful new methods of service for all of our clients."
