President's Search

Benilde-St. Margaret’s President Dr. Adam Ehrmantraut recently announced he will be leaving BSM at the conclusion of the 2021-2022 school year to pursue personal business opportunities. 

As such, BSM's Board of Directors has launched a formal search process for his replacement, working closely with Carney, Sandhoe & Associates (CS&A), an external search firm specializing in independent school consulting. The search process is being led by an experienced team of BSM Board members representing parents and alumni, along with a faculty representative and a representative from the Archdiocese. 

The Board will use this webpage to keep the BSM community updated on its search process and opportunities for engagement.
