CHIEF EXECUTIVES & PRESIDENTS
LEADING WITH VISION
WittKieffer has recruited and supported the development of thousands of CEOs and presidents who collectively improve their organizations, communities and society
An organization's CEO or president sets the tone for success, drawing upon tried-and-true leadership competencies combined with an eagerness to adapt and evolve.
For more than 50 years, WittKieffer has identified and developed the CEOs and presidents who are shaping the organizations at the intersection of healthcare delivery, science, and education – the Quality of Life Ecosystem. More than ever before, this ecosystem is in constant flux, with changing demographics and consumer needs, growing imperatives for innovation, and leadership that consistently and authentically demonstrates meaningful ways of engaging constituents. Strong leadership requires a revitalized commitment to align interests and advance business models that deliver the highest value of service. CEOs and presidents face new challenges and opportunities that were largely unforeseen by their predecessors, compounding the demand for visionary, collaborative, transformational leadership.
We partner with boards and search committees to bring unparalleled expertise to CEO and president recruitment to ensure a thorough, objective search process, including best practices in due diligence, and a deep, well-orchestrated discovery phase to focus on the competencies that truly matter most in a leader. Once leaders are in place, we partner with our client organizations to build their individual and collective capabilities, creating and sustaining aligned executive teams that successfully navigate an ever-changing world.
