Beebe Healthcare Board narrows president/CEO search to six finalists

Beebe Healthcare’s Board of Directors has narrowed its search for its next president/CEO to six finalists.

“The search for our next president and CEO is progressing extremely well,” said David Herbert, chair of the Beebe Board of Directors. “There were very high levels of interest in the position, and our search firm, Witt Kieffer, has received hundreds of inquiries from highly qualified healthcare executives across the country.”

Witt Kieffer, a healthcare executive recruiting firm assisting with the search, commented that “Beebe has a great brand and that candidates are excited regarding our current market position and the future.”

The search firm met with the board-appointed search committee on Oct. 11. Face-to-face interviews will be conducted with the six finalists during the last week of October. The final round of interviews will be in November. Herbert said it is the board’s goal to have the final candidate identified and appointed before the end of the year.
