The AQHA announced on Sept. 26, 2014 that they have selected an Executive Search Firm to search for the successor to Don Treadway, Jr., who announced this summer his intention to retire in 2015.
In August, the AQHA announced that they were accepting candidate resumes for the role of AQHA Executive Vice President, with resumes being sent firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 30, 2014.
Evidently not being satisfied with the results of resumes the received, the AQHA seven-member selection committee reviewed the credentials of several highly qualified recruiting organizations before selecting Witt/Kieffer, an executive search firm that provides leadership solutions for organizations committed to improving the quality of life. The firm is noted to be a top executive search firm specializing in not-for-profits as well as healthcare, higher education and life sciences. They have 45 years of experience in executive recruiting.
No timeline has been established for completing the search.
