Catholic Executive Search and Professional Coaching Services

Executive Search Services

As the COVID-19 situation continues, Trinity Executive Partnership (TEP) and Christian Brothers Services recognize the critical requirement of continuity of management in all Catholic institutions and organizations nationwide. Organizational changes, consolidations, retirements, executive departures and other circumstances will continue to result in the need to recruit qualified and experienced individuals to fill key roles in order to continue the advancement of Catholic missions and charism in the future.

As a result of these circumstances, TEP and CBS have made accommodations to lessen the financial impact of executive search and other consulting offerings, including:

  • Reduced retainer fee based on requirements of the role(s).
  • Extended payment options to spread consulting fees over a longer period of
  • Reduced expenses via virtual interviewing and vetting
  • One-year replacement guarantee for all executive search

TEP has been a preferred vendor of CBS for more than ten years and pioneered its "video candidate comparison" methodology over fifteen years ago, providing clients with a secure portal to review candidate selection videos of critical components of the specific role. As a result, TEP has moved seamlessly as the COVID-19 pandemic progressed to virtual rather than in­ person interviews. TEP has conducted 1,200 executive search assignments utilizing this approach with more than 10,000 candidates in Catholic, corporate and not-for-profit organizations. The methodology has been highly successful and provides a natural progression to the candidate "onboarding" process. In addition, TEP has conducted over 200 organizational and university assessments.

Please feel free to contact Richard Sbarbaro of Trinity Executive Partnership,, or Bob Fiorentino of Christian Brothers Services,, to discuss any potential requirements without obligation.
