NMC Hires Firm For President Search

By Beth Milligan | Jan. 16, 2019

Northwestern Michigan College trustees voted unanimously this week to hire Pauly Group, Inc. as the college's consulting firm to help find a new president to replace retiring President Tim Nelson.

The Springfield, Ill.-based company was among four finalists trustees interviewed in a special meeting January 9. Trustees cited "the depth of Pauly Group's experience in Michigan" as among the factors that set it apart, according to an NMC release.

"They had really strong experience with community colleges and in Michigan," says board vice chair Rachel Johnson. Pauly Group helped place the current presidents of North Central Michigan College in Petoskey (2018), Lake Michigan College in Benton Harbor (2017), and Mott Community College in Flint (2014).

NMC will initiate a contract with Pauly Group. In its proposal, the firm estimated the cost to provide face-to-face services throughout the search process at $52,000. Nelson is retiring from his postion at NMC at the end of 2019 after 18 years on the job.
