John Fazekas

With 25 years of executive search experience, John Fazekas works with colleagues in Witt/Kieffer’s Not-for-Profit and Healthcare practices to identify outstanding leaders for clients' specific cultures and strategic needs. He has led and supported a range of engagements for CEOs/presidents, executive directors, COOs, CFOs and other key senior roles. Based in the firm’s Boston office, John's clients include foundations and trusts, major civic and cultural organizations, hospitals, health systems, community health centers, disease-based associations and research institutes, and many other mission-driven organizations.

Prior to joining Witt/Kieffer, John was Director of Executive Search for The Bridgespan Group, a nationally-recognized nonprofit that worked exclusively with other nonprofits through a range of services that included executive search, strategy consulting and philanthropic advising. Clients included direct service agencies, national nonprofits, foundations and other philanthropic initiatives.

John started his executive search career initially with two of the industries’ largest global search firms before moving to boutiques focused on emerging, rapid growth technology clients. Recruiting senior leaders that were successful operating in lean environments and with especially tight margins, John developed an ability to identify leaders skilled at operating efficiency, focused on mission impact, and who fit the culture and character of their organizations.

John is a frequent volunteer within his community, and advises executives who are looking to make a difference in the nonprofit and healthcare sectors.
