Nghiem Bui, previously NGS’ Director of Strategic College and Career Design, has been named Next Generation Scholars’ next Executive Director.
The Board of Directors kicked off the search earlier this year following the decision by Jeff Escabar to return to running an Independent School. The search committee, led by Board member Zuly Godinez, worked with executive search firm Koya Partners to both identify and evaluate internal and external candidates. After multiple rounds of interviews, the Board selected Nghiem to lead the organization.
“We are excited about Nghiem taking on this new role given his passion for our mission, his experience as an educator, and his demonstrated ability to think critically and ask important questions as both a staff member and former board member,”added Andy Arenberg, NGS Board Chair.
