Four former Black College presidents announced today the launch of TM2 Education Search, which provides retained search and leadership development services targeting Historically Black Colleges & Universities and Predominantly Black Institutions (the Black College Community).

TM2 Education Search is the brainchild of former Black College presidents John Garland (former President ofCentral State University); Sidney Ribeau (former President of Howard University); Wayne Watson (President Emeritus Chicago State University); and Dorothy Cowser Yancy (President Emerita Johnson C. Smith University& Shaw University). The team of founding principals will leverage more than 100 years of combined leadership experience to recruit and support college presidents, chancellors, provosts, deans, and board members.

“We are experiencing a critical moment in the Black College Community,” said John Garland, Executive Chairman of TM2 Education Search. “TM2 was created to ensure all schools have access to the best senior talent.”

In addition to its founding principals, Christopher Braswell will serve as firm president. Mr. Braswell has over twenty years’ experience partnering with organizations in talent management, executive search, and leadership development. Previously, he was a founding partner of the firm Talent Bridge, where he managed the Retained Search Practice, Career Services Division, and Diversity Talent Practice.

“Completing a successful search is only part of the job,” said Christopher Braswell, President of TM2 Education Search. “We intend to maintain long-term relationships with leaders and schools, providing the coaching necessary for successful transitions.”
