Experienced executive to expand consulting firm’s presence in the Kentucky market
Clark Schaefer Consulting (CSC), a division of Clark Schaefer Hackett Business Advisors, has hired Robbie Chitwood as Managing Director. Chitwood will be focused on building and managing CSC’s presence in the Kentucky market.
Chitwood, a Kentucky native, will be able to leverage her deep understanding of the local business environment to foster CSC’s relationships with existing clients and develop new clients by delivering high-quality, customized professional services—two factors critical to the company’s growth in Kentucky. Chitwood will also source and engage local talent, helping to ensure CSC provides the highest level of client service and makes a broad community impact.
“I was drawn immediately to the stellar reputation of Clark Schaefer Hackett as a top accounting and business advisory firm. As well, the opportunity to work locally and build CSC’s practice in Kentucky was an opportunity that matched my career as a Big 4 CPA and consulting executive,” said Chitwood.
Chitwood continued, “I am excited to educate the market on CSC’s service capabilities and offer practical solutions to executives to help them address immediate, ongoing, and future needs of their organizations. CSC’s service capabilities and team of experienced consultants enable us to assist our clients with needs in all functional areas of business and deliver solutions whenever, wherever and however they are needed in the local market and beyond.”
Outside of work, Chitwood dedicates substantial time and energy to service projects and mission work. She has served as an ambassador of gender equity programs and mentor in support of the advancement of women in the accounting industry and business in general.
Chitwood’s experience dovetails that of the firm’s Clark Schaefer Executive Search and Strategic HR services: she has been heavily involved in recruiting, including serving as an on-campus and experience-hire recruiter. She also has significant experience designing, developing and delivering leadership programming for executives and teams, high-potential and emerging leaders and leaders working in family-owned businesses.
“Robbie is a great fit for Clark Schaefer Consulting, and she has the skills and experience necessary to drive our growth and success in the Kentucky market. With her leadership and expertise, CSC will be well positioned to provide exceptional service to clients in the area and make a positive influence in the local business community. It’s an exciting time for the company, and we know Robbie will have a significant impact in her efforts to better the lives of our clients, people, and communities.” said DeAnna Bird, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Administrative Officer, Clark Schaefer Consulting.
