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 can unequivocally and without hesitation extol the virtues of the Deffet Group in providing the resources and guidance we needed to find a perfect fit for CEO of our organization. There are many factors that impressed us about working with this team of professionals, chief among them being the fact that I, and the Search Committee, always felt like we were the only organization they were working with. They were always timely in responding and that makes a huge difference during the search process. They were able to provide us with 20 viable candidates, and from that list we narrowed it down to five for in person interviews. Any one of those five could have been a good fit, but one bubbled to the top. And that candidate has far surpassed our expectations. He not only has been a perfect fit for the organization, but has become very actively involved in the community. I can say with complete confidence that without the excellent support and assistance from the Deffet Group, we would not have found the perfect person for the job. I would not hesitate to use them again, nor would I look elsewhere if another opportunity came up in the future.”
