Ann Wheeler Joins Odgers Berndtson U.S. as a Principal in the firm’s Leadership Advisory Practice

Odgers Berndtson U.S. is excited to announce that Ann C. Wheeler, Ph.D., has joined the firm as our newest Principal in the Leadership Advisory practice area, where she will provide leadership advisory services, such as executive assessments, executive coaching, and succession planning.

Ann has deep experience working with major manufacturing clients, including Department of Defense contractors, aerospace manufacturers, chemical manufacturers, and other highly regulated and specialized industries. She has also worked extensively with energy companies, public utilities, and power generators, particularly nuclear and fossil generation facilities.

She joins the firm as industries like these are in the midst of ongoing and sweeping change, including shifts in the types of leaders that will drive these sectors forward. Ann will be instrumental in both helping to expand Odgers Berndtson’s Leadership Advisory practice, as well as advising clients on executive-level leadership planning.

Says Kennon Kincaid, COO of Odgers Berndtson U.S., “It’s great to be bringing Ann on board as we expand our Leadership Advisory footprint and increase collaboration and partnership across our organizational sectors. She has over twenty years experience as a leadership consultant and deep expertise working in complex, shifting industries. Her presence will be instrumental for our clients as they position their leaders for what’s next.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining a great organization with a team of strong and dedicated colleagues,” says Wheeler. “We have an opportunity to both increase our brand recognition within the U.S. and help our clients navigate change strategically and scientifically. We aim to be go-to partners for leadership services, and I’m looking forward to bringing both my clinical and corporate experience to our approach.”

We look forward to realizing the expertise that Ann brings to our Leadership Advisory practice, and our clients in manufacturing and energy.
