Placed Leaders

Sam Teigen


Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation

We partnered with the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation on the search for a Controller. The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation is a private foundation based in Morristown, New Jersey, that supports, centers, and connects communities and changemakers who are addressing the root causes and repair of structural racism and inequity in New Jersey.

Our work resulted in the recruitment of Sam Teigen to the role.

Teigen has more than 25 years of nonprofit experience. In this role, Teigen works across the organization to research and implement financial policies, procedures, and infrastructure in support of the Foundation’s priorities.  

Previously, Teigen spent 22 years at the Greenwall Foundation in a variety of roles including finance, grants administration, and general operations.

Teigen holds a BA from Luther College. He earned an MPA from New York University’s Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service.
