School Committee Hires Superintendent Search Firm

At its meeting on Monday, the school committee hired an executive search firm at a cost of $19,500.


The Medfield School Committee has chosen an executive search firm to help select the district's next Superintendent of Schools.

Current Superintendent Bob Maguire announced last month that he will retire in June after 22 years in the district.

Last week, the school committee interviewed two firms -- Future Management Systems, Inc. of Beverly and NESDEC of Marlborough -- that had responded to a Request for Proposals put out by the district.

After the presentations, school committee members rated the applicants; that information was used to determine the best choice for the district. 

On Monday, the school committee unanimously voted to hire Future Management Systems at a rate of $19,500 which has been negotiated with the firm. 

According to Future Management's website, the company was established in 1979 and "has more than thirty years experience working with over 700 organizations including 300 school systems. We work with public and private educational systems, non-profit organizations, government agencies and corporations in the areas of leadership development, strategic planning, high-performance team building, conflict resolution, executive coaching, executive searches, CEO/Executive Leadership Groups, and board development."

"I think this is going to be a really interesting process," said Chairman Debbie Noschese.
