An alert from the desk of Allison Salopeck, Board Chair

While earlier this summer Kathryn Brod announced her decision to retire at the end of 2021, the board’s decision to launch a national search has extended Kathryn’s timeline a bit. The Board of Directors has created a search committee to guide the search for Kathryn’s successor. The Deffet Group is conducting this search. Kathryn has agreed to continue to serve until the search is complete and transition to her successor is finalized.

Kathryn’s commitment and the board’s commitment to the Strategic Plan initiatives are undeterred. Kathryn is working alongside the Board and her LeadingAge Ohio colleagues to ensure that this transition is as smooth as possible and that LeadingAge Ohio’s work proceeds without interruption.

We encourage members to consider this position and those that may be a good fit for its work. Please address any questions related to the search process to Danielle Willis, LeadingAge Ohio Board member and chair of the Search Committee, at  Candidate nominations or expressions of personal interest may be directed in confidence to Dan Deffet, Managing Partner, Deffet Group, Inc., via email:
