About Our Speaker

Betsy Wallace has worked in Leadership Development for more than 20 years, including seven years with Merrill Lynch.  At Merrill, Betsy managed an Executive Development group where her team designed succession planning and development processes for the top 300 leaders of a 15,000-person business unit.  Leading the annual succession planning review was one of Betsy’s key responsibilities.

In 2018 Betsy joined the board of Rise in Mercer County, NJ, and soon became the VP of governance with a focus on board development.  Through conversations with her nonprofit colleagues, Betsy learned of the lurking need for nonprofit boards to proactively plan for leadership transitions for long-standing CEO’s, ED’s, and board leaders.

Recent nonprofit projects include helping implement an Emergency Transition Process; creating a core-values-based performance management system; helping pre-plan for an executive search; and coaching an interim Executive Director during an emergency transition.

With a Master’s degree in Organizational Communication, Betsy’s first love is interpersonal skills coaching for executives, leaders, professionals, and students, developing their potential within the context of their organizational and career goals.
