Thomas Wolf was wrong. You can go home again, as parents are learning during the pandemic. We have had the good fortune to learn this as well.

We are pleased to announce that Amanda Brady has re-joined The Alexander Group in a combined role of Chief Operating Officer and Managing Director. Amanda joined the firm in 2004 and quickly impressed us with her intelligence, ability to lead complex searches, and business acumen. She also had a strong commitment to long-term client relationships and the highest degree of integrity, which is the foundation of everything the firm stands for. After ten years with the firm, Amanda left to lead another national search firm’s law firm administrative search practice and to serve as a chief operating officer of a national law firm. During this time, Amanda obtained a Master’s degree from George Washington University and became a strategic thought leader and sought-after speaker on law firm talent management and strategy.

Here is our press release announcing Amanda’s return and her leadership role in our future.
