Witt/Kieffer Welcomes New Consultant to Healthcare and Not-For-Profit Practices

Witt/Kieffer announced the addition of Julie A. Rosen as a consultant in the firm’s Healthcare practice. Based in Boston, MA, Rosen will focus on identifying C-suite and other senior leaders on behalf of hospitals, health systems, integrated delivery systems, health plan clients, associations and not-for-profit organizations. 


Rosen brings over 30 years of experience in healthcare and not-for-profit organizations and associations, with expertise in building effective boards and staff, developing and executing fundraising strategies, building organizations and brands through government, media and community strategies, and developing business and programmatic solutions. She currently serves as chair of the Health Care Services Committee at Hebrew SeniorLife, a Harvard Medical School affiliate and Greater Boston’s largest provider of senior health care, living communities, research, and teaching. She has also served on the boards of Vinfen, the Fishing Partnership Health Plan, and the Heller School Alumni Committee. Rosen brings a wealth of not-for-profit leadership experience to her new role, and in addition to her work in the Healthcare practice, she will contribute to the firm's work in the not-for-profit sector.


Said Rosen: “I have spent most of my career focusing on the complex operations of healthcare and not-for-profit organizations, and on the communities they serve. My new role at Witt/Kieffer allows me to leverage my understanding of how to identify and attract transformational leaders who truly make a difference to their organizations.”


Prior to joining Witt/Kieffer, Rosen was executive director of the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare, a position she held since 2004 after serving as a member of its Board of Directors for six years and co-chairing its Development Committee for four years.   Rosen has also served as assistant vice president for public and community affairs at Tufts Health Plan and executive director of the Conference of Boston Teaching Hospitals. She has held leadership roles at the Massachusetts Hospital Association and Massachusetts Medical Society.
