Helping you Achieve a High IMPACT non-profit


Interim CEO

Every so often, an organization will experience the unexpected loss of a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with no clear succession plan in place. When that happens and there’s no clear path to transition and introduce a new leader, it can be problematic for staff, board members and donors. That’s why Keith Padgett, MPA is a name you need to know.

Padgett is an experienced leader with more than 45 years in the nonprofit sector who can temporarily fill the leadership void and reassure all constituents as an interim CEO until a new, permanent CEO is hired. 

In the meantime, KPA is capable of actively recruiting and vetting viable candidates for interview and hire by the board.
