Zoos, Aquariums, and Botanical Gardens Executive Search Clients

Zoos, aquariums and botanical gardens are not just repositories of flora and fauna.  They play an important role in environmental sustainability, in preserving animal species and in developing life-saving drugs through botanical research.  The professionals that lead these organizations are specialists in their respective fields, but more importantly, they have the leadership skills to transform their institutions into organizations that “change the world.”    Whether it is endangered species, marine mammals or climate change that is changing the nature of horticulture, the leaders of these institutions play an integral role in creating a better world.  James Abruzzo and his team understand what it takes to lead these organizations and have played a key role in assisting their boards finding and keeping leaders.
