Firm in Chancellor search is out

Parker Executive search backs out of contract

The search firm that had been looking for the next Chancellor for the University System of Georgia is now off the job: Parker Executive Search has stopped taking applicants on its website and is backing out of its contract.

The search for retiring Chancellor Steve Wrigley’s replacement ground to a halt amid reports that former Georgia governor and US Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue was in line for the job. Wrigley, a former administrator at the University of Georgia, is stepping down at the end of June.
