Lisa Savereid

Chief Quality Officer

A member of the Management Committee, Lisa Savereid leads the firm’s quality, craft, and search training activities, building on her successful career as a search practitioner and organizational leader. She came to Isaacson, Miller in 1994 with a background in government and business and established a successful search practice spanning a number of core areas of focus in the firm. She played an important role in the development of the higher education practice, leading cabinet-level searches for some of the firm's most prominent university clients and building and sustaining long-term relationships with them. Her practice also included leadership recruitment for advocacy, philanthropy, and economic and community development clients. Lisa began her career managing a range of economic and community development, public safety, and civil rights issues for former Boston Mayor Kevin H. White. She then joined the general management consulting practice of a major accounting firm, and later served in executive positions at two of Boston's most successful real estate development and investment firms.
