UE Hires Search Firm for New Director of Athletics

 In an effort to conduct a thorough national search for the next director of athletics, the University of Evansville (UE) has hired TurnkeyZRG to assist in the search process. TurnkeyZRG is universally known as one of the top search firms in the sports industry.

UE has formed a diverse, nine-person advisory committee that includes current and former student-athletes, faculty, coaches, administrators, and trustees. The advisory committee, along with UE President Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz, will work collaboratively with TurnkeyZRG, led by managing director Chad Chatlos, in a national search for the next director of athletics. Chatlos specializes in senior executive searches across the sports industry with a focus on senior leadership roles in the ever-changing landscape of intercollegiate athletics.

“I am confident that this advisory committee will assist in attracting an impressive pool of candidates who will focus on the student-athlete experience in competition and in the classroom, who will engage our campus, our friends, our fan base, and our community, who will build strong competitive programs, and who will support our coaches and athletics staff who build competitive skills and serve as mentors for future leaders,” said Pietruszkiewicz.
