Meet Our Team

It’s McKinley’s ability to look at that complexity and make it comprehensible and actionable and slice it in a way that provides a new vision for an organization like ASAE. They're not afraid to take the deeper dive and come up with the right outcomes or solutions that allow us to do our work better.

Former President & CEO, American Society of Association Executives

It isn't always easy to find an expert in all areas, especially not someone that is an equal partner in the work itself and the passion McKinley shares. That’s the secret sauce that makes us turn to McKinley and why the board feels that the work we do with them is a great investment for the organization.

President & CEO, American College of Healthcare Executives

The American Association of Orthodontists engaged McKinley Advisors to facilitate our strategic planning process in 2017 and again in 2021. They are able to socialize feedback, hear many voices and then synthesize what they have heard into a one page, easy to read document that becomes our guiding star. We are so appreciative of their ability to combine a number of things into a coherent whole that will lead our association forward into the future.
