WittKieffer is proud to announce it is partnering with the Harris House Board of Directors in its search for their next Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The organization seeks a transformational, innovative and inspirational leader to serve in this key leadership role at one of the country’s premier, private, non-profit organizations committed to helping people who suffer from alcoholism and drug addiction.
By following a philosophy of responsible recovery, Harris House, based in St. Charles, Missouri, which is part of the Metropolitan St. Louis area, has helped people overcome alcohol and drug addiction for 60 years. Their doors are always open to those willing to take the first step toward a lifetime of active healing. Harris House has a very strong balance sheet and a history of profitability.
This is a career-defining role for an executive committed to excellence and innovation in the addiction treatment and recovery industry. The new CEO will be responsible for leading all aspects of Harris House as the organization continues to build a new, transformative model for addiction treatment and recovery services in the 21st century. This individual will report to the Harris House Board of Directors, working closely with the Board and the Harris House executive leadership team to align goals and execute effective strategies on behalf of the communities they serve.
With a passion for and commitment to the highest quality of care for patients and their families, the Harris House CEO will embrace and personify the mission, values and highly collaborative culture of the organization. This executive leadership position requires a dynamic, collaborative, visible, energetic and seasoned professional with extensive healthcare experience, who appreciates the unique needs of a world-class addiction treatment and recovery organization and has empathy for those who are in recovery or are struggling for recovery. A personal connection to recovery will be given serious consideration, as the Harris House board evaluates candidates.
Prior experience as a CEO or an executive with extensive board interaction and experience with philanthropy is preferred. Candidates must have a strong and successful track record in operations, experience with multiple sites and healthcare delivery will all be beneficial. The CEO will be a hands on, results achieving and problem solving executive who thinks innovatively to achieve difficult results. They will be a strategically astute executive who provides leadership that will enhance strong operational and financial performance, exceptional teamwork and quality care, as well as growth in programs for Harris House. This will require an experienced leader who can effectively translate and execute, helping provide clear direction and performance goals to Harris House, its leaders and the clinical staff.
