Leadership is lifting a person's vision to higher sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
Keri Kittmann, a true original on the AF Group leadership team, has been with the enterprise since 2000, holding a variety of key roles (punctuated by her Leader of the Year award in 2009). In 2019, she began serving as vice president and chief of staff (COS) to President and CEO Lisa Corless, and in 2023, she was promoted to senior vice president of Business Performance and Strategy while retaining her COS role.
While her formal role has her leading efforts related to current and future acquisitions while also overseeing executive, employee and external communications, she is an appreciated and respected leader across the organization for many other reasons.
She’s a thoughtful, straight shooter who can hold a room with a story, a trusted confidante and quick decision maker. And even though her degree is in accounting, she’s one of the coolest people you’ll probably ever meet (no offense to the accountants of the world).
A Michigan State Spartan through and through, Keri is a proud mom of two daughters and an active member of her community in roles such as the board of directors for Cristo Rey Community Center and the Governing Board for Ele’s Place. She also serves as board treasurer for the Workers’ Compensation Research Institute. We’re grateful to have her on the leadership team and look forward to her invaluable contributions in the years to come.
