We Partner With Boards to Ensure Great Leadership

Boards of healthcare, insurance, life sciences, academic, and Fortune 500 organizations face complex challenges in today’s business environment as a result of increasing regulation, intense scrutiny on costs and a volatile economy. Board leaders must have sophisticated skill sets, while managing existing board members and nurturing prospective ones.

The Witt/Kieffer Board Services practice focuses on board recruitment as well as providing succession planning and leadership development for governing boards. Witt/Kieffer has partnered with healthcare, insurance, academic and other industries for more than 45 years to ensure a smooth transfer of board leadership. We are trusted board recruitment advisors and manage a seamless process.

We support board leadership seeking high performing trustees who are qualified and committed to steward an organization’s mission and vision. We also present educational programs on a wide variety of topics geared to trustee development.

Integral to all the work that we do are our Leadership Solutions, a proven portfolio of tools and methodologies which help organizations define what great leadership is according to their needs and strategic objectives.
