“The CSA team helped us with finding our new athletic director and I need to say that I found the CSA process to be both very efficient and effective. They brought to us a terrific set of candidates for review and engaged their extensive network to help us vet them. I can’t say enough good things about the professionalism of the CSA team and their commitment to our success. We hired a terrific new athletic director in Brad Davis, who is a great fit for the Mount St. Mary’s team.”

Timothy Trainor
President, Mount St. Mary’s University

“I couldn’t be happier with CSA and can’t say enough about working with Craig and Drew. Across the board high marks and would look forward to working with CSA again should the need arise.

From the first time we spoke through the press conference announcing our AD, both assisted our search committee in a timely manner in reviewing a large pool of qualified applicants, narrowing pool down for airport interviews, and then on to campus interviews, in a short time frame. I would not hesitate in recommending CSA or using them again.”

Dr. Kelli Brown
Chancellor, Western Carolina University

“Thank you to CSA for all of their efforts to realize a successful AD search at Towson University. The pool was outstanding and CSA really listened to me and the committee when we described what a successful candidate would bring to the table – and then delivered candidates that fit that bill. Just outstanding! Steve Eigenbrot was the absolute right choice for Towson University at this moment. We are all looking forward to supporting his success.”
