Turnkey’s DeFilippo on Candidate, Search Firm Roles

In conjunction with our partners at D1.ticker, Turnkey Search is pleased to present “1.Question”, an audio feature in D1.ticker’s daily email newsletter. “1.Question” features brief interviews with high level collegiate athletic administrators.

With both the University of California and the University of Virginia looking for new Athletic Directors, 1.Q checks back in with former Boston College/Villanova Athletic Director and current Turnkey Search Managing Director Gene DeFilippo. DeFilippo provides insight on how candidates pursuing two concurrent openings should proceed transparently, and his beliefs on the responsibilities of search firms to put forward candidates who will take the jobs they are offered.
