Witt/Kieffer’s 45-year history began in Witt Associates, a small, boutique firm that specialized in healthcare executive search. Based in Oak Brook, IL, Witt Associates was the nation’s first executive search firm dedicated to identifying hospital leaders.

Founded in 1969, our mission is to identify outstanding leadership solutions for organizations committed to improving the quality of life. In 1995, the firm diversified its search practice to include education and not-for-profit organizations. In July 1998, Witt/Kieffer acquired Educational Management Network in Nantucket, MA and Nashville, TN, a small, but prestigious search firm specializing in education and community service and cultural organizations.

We are still the only firm among the top ten dedicated to serving healthcare, academic medicine, life sciences, higher education and not-for-profit organizations.
