Preston Pulliams, president of national search firm Gold Hill Associates

Board members at Columbia Gorge Community College this week selected a national search firm to lead the quest for a new president, meanwhile naming the college’s chief academic officer, Lori Ufford, as interim president for the institution.

Gold Hill Associates, the firm selected by board members Sept. 12, was among five search firms responding to the board’s invitation for proposals. The firm is composed of six principal associates based across the United States. Two of them, Dr. Walter Nolte and Dr. Preston Pulliams, would be assigned to the CGCC presidential search once an agreement is formalized. Dr. Nolte recently retired as president of Casper College, Wyo. Dr. Pulliams, the owner of Gold Hill Associates, was president of Portland Community College from 2004-13.

During Pulliams’ presidency at PCC, he worked closely with Dr. Frank Toda, CGCC’s outgoing president, in CGCC’s successful quest for independent accreditation. Toda resigned last month, with his final day coming Sept. 29.
