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.


“Deffet Group provided stellar service throughout our search for a President/CEO. Their knowledge and understanding of the senior living space, and of the people within that space, were invaluable to us. They consistently demonstrated their overarching goal was to assist us in finding the best possible candidate – which they did. They were generous with their time, wisdom, and counsel. Their integrity shines through everything they do. They enabled our Search Committee to do its work more efficiently and more effectively than we could have done on our own. They led us through the search process in a genuine and facilitative way – never pushy and always helpful. They were a critical part of, and a respected voice in, meetings and conversations. They also are wonderfully enjoyable people. The value they provide is outstanding. I recommend them without reservation.”
