The relevant language seems to be in Exhibit B, which says
" Grantee shall hire a recruiting firm to lead the senior executive
search, to the satisfaction of the Grantor. Supporting documentation
must be provided no later than 31 August 2015."

That would leave leeway to use recruiters for additional searches, still
