Maria de la Cámara, Ph.D., is a Senior Consultant at Hyatt-Fennell, specializing in searches for executive positions at private colleges and universities.
Opportunity and adaptability have been recurring themes throughout Dr. de la Cámara’s career in higher education, with a special focus on expanding and creating new academic programs that fulfilled the needs of her growing and changing student populations. As such, she believes one key factor in a successful executive search is to think outside the box. This includes contacting possible candidates who may not be actively searching to see if a new opportunity may be a good fit for their long-term professional goals.
Holding degrees in English (B.A., Lake Erie College) and Spanish Literature (M.A. and Ph.D., Case Western Reserve University), Dr. de la Cámara has worked as a professor, dean, provost, and vice-president in a number of different colleges and universities. This knowledge of higher education from many angles gives her unique insight into her work assisting with executive searches.
