Everyone at the East Bay Agency for Children is grateful to Beth Schecter for her many contributions to the agency as our ten month interim CEO. While the agency was relatively stable when she stepped in during our search for a new, permanent CEO, we all knew that we would benefit from a review from an objective third party.

Dana Hughes

President Board of Directors
Beth was excellent as an Interim ED and just what Garrison Institute (GI) needed. I cannot think of anything she could have done better – she engaged with Staff and Board at an appropriate level, was adept at dealing with complex interpersonal issues that emerged, and kept GI stable and on track as we regrouped and searched for our new ED. Many thanks to you and the Center for your help with this process, and for recommending such an excellent person.

Garrison Institute
Beth is a detailed oriented executive and mentor. She can command and direct staff and be a trusted guide and advisor. With her never-ending focus, Beth and I accomplished so much in the short time we worked together. She is an excellent planner and thinks strategically about the task at hand. Most importantly she is passionate about the organizations and causes where she works. I am grateful for her partnership and hope that we have the chance to work together again.

Lillian Archer

San Francisco Botanical Gardens
Beth had the great insight to bring a business perspective to the challenges of a non-profit and did an outstanding job in translating non-profit goals and issues for us MBA’s, shaping recommendations to fit her culture, selling to her sponsors and then deploying. I was amazed and appreciative that Beth had the discipline and political skill to deploy all our recommendations when many of our clients despite best intentions are unable to make long-term progress.
