Who We Are

CSA’s purpose is defined by a commitment to assist our former Athletic Director colleagues, Presidents, and other institutional leaders in preserving an alignment between the mission of athletics with that of the University. Our experience and life-long dedication to the values of higher education and amateur intercollegiate athletics are what makes us unique.

How We Work

CSA has distinguished itself in the athletics consulting and executive search business because of its reliance on highly skilled experts with a vast network of relationships and significant on-campus/AD experience in NCAA Division I athletics. Having a small team with significant on-campus experience allows for a unique, highly focused and efficient level of service in analyzing and addressing challenges in today’s highly complex athletics landscape.

What We Deliver

In our short ten-year history, we have worked on over 110 executive searches and over 50 consulting projects for more than 80 institutions and conferences across all levels of Division I. Our greatest indicator of service quality is that 39 institutions have chosen CSA for multiple executive search and/or consulting projects.
