Keight Tucker Kennedy

Managing Associate

A member of our team since 2014, Keight brings diverse experience in nonprofit and higher education organizations to her practice. She has worked on several presidential searches, including Spelman College, Hamilton College, Converse College, DePauw University, Duke University, Hollins University, and Johnson C. Smith University. Additionally, she has been the lead associate on several student affairs searches at Washington University in St. Louis, Princeton, MIT, and Cornell. As a search consultant, Keight has worked with historically black colleges and universities, women's colleges, and K-12 education and advocacy organizations. Repeat work with top-tier research universities proves her skill in identifying an organization's core challenges and finding the candidate whose skills can help solve them. Her clients also appreciate her ability to view searches through the lens of strategic change, a skill she learned managing strategy and organization development projects for federal agencies. An active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, Keight serves on the executive committee of the Xi Zeta Omega chapter. She is also a board member and assistant financial secretary of the Ivy Foundation of Washington, DC.
