A World Made Better by Differences


McCormack+Kristel is a national provider of executive search consulting services for nonprofit and philanthropic organizations. Established in 1993, as McCormack & Associates, by veteran search consultant Joseph A. McCormack, the firm was among the first national search practices to specialize in diversity recruiting.

In 2013, Michelle Kristel joined the firm following a career in nonprofit leadership. The McCormack+Kristel partnership offers clients the complementary benefits of Joe’s seasoned recruiting expertise and Michelle’s nonprofit executive experience.

With offices in California and New York, the firm serves a broad spectrum of public health, human services, advocacy and social justice organizations.

What Our Clients Say About Working with McCormack+Kristel

We hired McCormack+Kristel to fill a critical position with our health and mental health services. The search resulted in the hire of an exceptional candidate from another HIV/AIDS services agency. We were so pleased with the attentive service and thoroughly vetted candidates, that when a second important position became available, we reached out to McCormack+Kristel again. We are so thankful to Joe and the entire team for making the process smooth and enjoyable start to finish.
