Fehr & Peers is pleased to announce the completion of the final stage of our internal CEO transition process. In May of 2019, Chris Mitchell was unanimously elected as President by the shareholders, with the intent to become our next CEO in 2020. Chris joined Fehr & Peers immediately after graduate school and has been with the firm for 20 years, serving in a series of roles of increasing leadership, and most recently as company-wide Director of Operations. The transition period has now concluded, and Chris officially assumes the CEO role this month. He succeeds Matt Henry, who served more than 15 years in the role and 28 years overall with the firm. Board Chair Sarah Brandenberg stated, “We are grateful for all of the growth and success we have achieved under Matt’s leadership, and are excited for the next phase of the firm’s evolution with Chris as our new CEO.”
Matt will now transition to the role of Principal Consultant with Left Lane Advisors, a subsidiary of Fehr & Peers focused on leadership and organizational development, where he will focus on business advisory services and coaching. Please join us in congratulating both Chris and Matt on their new roles!
