"Always improve the tools in your toolbox  ..."


Why they're a Crisis Leader:

Leadership skills and humility go hand in hand, and Ken Walther has plenty of both.

While he is the last person to beat his own drum, when Ken speaks, people perk up.

And even though he has years of leadership experience under his belt, it’s also apparent that many of the traits he speaks about come to him naturally. Both personally and professionally, Ken embodies what we need from a leader during a crisis.

As a leader with extensive familiarity with both the public and the private sector, Ken draws from the best of both worlds to provide world-class leadership from his very full toolbox of resources.
