National Executive Service Corps: C-Level Professionals on a Mission to Energize South Florida's Non-Profits


The National
Executive Services Corps of South Florida
has a message for area
non-profit agencies: Your vision is to make South Florida better. Ours
is to help you succeed.

Powered by volunteers who are C-Level professionals with decades of
operational expertise, NESC of South Florida provides low cost, high
performance consulting exclusively to non-profits at a fraction of what
for-profit consultants typically charge.

A perfect example is the 12 executive search assignments NESC has
completed for Hispanic Unity of Florida. By reshaping position
descriptions for a tighter job market, screening, interviewing and
producing a slate of preferred candidates, NESC saved the organization
hundreds of hours of time at a deeply discounted fee.

"NESC works hard to understand the values and culture of the
organization. This enables them to expertly select candidates with
strong skills and experience who will thrive in our fast-paced
environment," said Hispanic
Unity of Florida
CEO Josie Bacallao.

In addition to executive search, NESC offers services
to resolve the unique challenges of non-profits

  • Business and strategic planning
  • Organizational analysis
  • Board development
  • Executive coaching
  • Feasibility studies
  • Leadership
  • Organizational development
  • Marketing and public relations.

The Center
for Independent Living
tasked NESC with two objectives: work with
the board to create a five-year strategic plan, and facilitate an
employee meeting to craft a values statement that would guide their
behavior in the workplace. Both outcomes were successful, resulting in
an energized and re-engaged board, and greater teamwork among staff.

"Thanks to our employees' participation in creating our values
statement, office morale is noticeably improved," said Corey Hinds,
Executive Director/CEO of Center for Independent Living. "And our board
members left the board retreat with a feeling of excitement and
achievement. Everyone is ready to build on this solid foundation and
work together to accomplish our year-one goals."

"Our work with the National Executive Service Corps of South Florida was
transformational," said Patricia West, chairman of the Piney
Grove Boys Academy
Board of Directors regarding the development of
the school's strategic plan. "Working with NESC pushed us to think on a
higher level, set goals to achieve sustainable growth and become an
extraordinary organization."

NESC President, CEO, and Senior Consultant Melanie
explains the value her team offers: "For decades, our
consultants successfully led organizations, managed people,
strategically planned growth and mastered changes for some of America's
top-level companies. Their desire to implement change and achieve
results still burns strong. So it's a win-win situation for them and our
local non-profits."

About The National Executive Services Corps of South Florida

In February, 2015, six retired C-Suite senior executives, wanting to use
their considerable business skills to help nonprofits, rekindled a
dormant 501(c)(3) organization based in South Florida. This organization
continues its affiliation with the National Executive Service Corps, an
organization founded in 1977 by David Rockefeller in New York. Today,
each of the 18 affiliates in the U.S. is a standalone business, sharing
the common mission of strengthening nonprofits. For more information,
