Search Firm

UNC-TV has retained the services of m/Oppenheim, an executive search agency specializing in the non-profit sector, to lead a national search for the statewide PBS network’s next chief content officer (CCO). Dennis Hanthorn, a principal with m/Oppenheim, is serving as executive search consultant for the search.

m/Oppenheim Associates was founded by Mark Oppenheim after a 28-year career in organizational development, professional services and executive search consulting. The genesis of our organization goes back to two firms founded by the Oppenheim family: CM Oppenheim & Associates, a New York based company which later extended its operations into Europe, and Phillips Oppenheim based in New York and focusing on service to nonprofits.

After a career spanning the business, nonprofit and government sectors, in 2003 Mark joined Phillips Oppenheim and substantially upgraded the firm’s operating infrastructure, founded the West region’s office, extended its presence nationally, and drove an almost three-fold expansion of its business. In 2008 the East and West regions split apart, and Mark and his team founded m/Oppenheim Associates.

m/Oppenheim helps strengthen nonprofits programmatically, organizationally, and financially by recruiting great leaders for great organizations.
