In The Region:

The firm that led the search for the president of Youngstown State University is offering to conduct a second search without charge.

Washington-based AGB Search helped Youngstown State hire Randy Dunn, who is leaving after only seven months.

In a surprise announcement this week Dunn accepted the job of president of Southern Illinois University.

AGB managing principal Jamie Ferrare is offering to waive the firm’s $65,000 dollar fee in the search to replace Dunn.

“We feel terrible about the departure of the president after such a short term and would want to make sure it was done well and done right this next time.” 

Ferrare says Dunn is leaving Youngstown for his ‘dream’ job at Southern Illinois.

The YSU board is still deciding whether to accept the search firm’s offer.
