Succession Planning

Finding Tomorrow’s Talent today

Our succession planning services extend beyond the C-suite, providing clients with a clearer view of their talent at all levels. With the wave of C-Level retirements about to hit the senior living industry, succession planning early means more and improved options and an increased chance at leveraging the value in all you've built. Contact us to learn about how to build a more sustainable succession planning process that deepens your internal talent pipeline.


A Complete View of the Talent Pipeline

Few events carry greater risk to stakeholder value than a change of leadership. We offer a robust succession management approach that deepens the talent pipeline for the top level and other key roles. We begin with our proven talent review process, which provides you with a more complete view of the internal and external pipeline. Second, we help you understand how your organization’s succession planning is—or is not—producing the leaders you need. To close the gap, we then help clarify, enhance, design, and build a more sustainable process.


“I would highly recommend Deffet Group when searching for professional executives. Looking back over my career of hiring people, I have never experienced working with a firm that was so professional, so well coordinated, even fun, and so rewarding. Our CEO is doing an excellent job and is well liked by the board, staff, residents, “everyone” and has adapted perfectly. I know Niagara Lutheran Health System will do very well in the future under his direction. We are most thankful for Deffet Group and the professional help they provided in attracting a strong candidate pool and guiding us throughout the CEO search process.”
