The state Board of Regents announced it has selected Parker Executive Search of Atlanta as the search firm in finding the next University of Iowa president.

Parker has worked with national and international clients in executive searches, according to the group’s website.

At the UI, Parker plans to create a search timeline, identify and assess candidates, facilitate interviews, and negotiate and provide follow-up communications, according to a release from the regents.

Parker helped to find new university presidents at Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa in 2011 and 2012.

Selecting Parker is consistent with a statement President Bruce Rastetter made at a Jan. 20 press conference, in which he said the UI’s presidential-search model would be similar to that used to find presidents at ISU and UNI.
