Ken Fisher

Chairman & CEO of Fisher House Foundation, Co-Managing Partner at Fisher Brothers

Ken Fisher has dedicated his career and life’s work to building and leading complex, multi-billion-dollar organizations and supporting military personnel and families. Ken Fisher is the Chairman and CEO of Fisher House Foundation, an organization best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving medical treatment. The homes are located at major military and VA medical centers, close to the medical center it serves. Ken has overseen the construction of 71 Fisher Houses throughout the United States and has expanded operations to Germany and the United Kingdom. In addition, since 2001, Fisher House Foundation has helped more than 10,000 military children attend two and four-year colleges across the country by providing more than $15 million in scholarships. Ken served as Chairman of the Invictus Game’s Organizing Committee for the 2016 games in Orlando. The Invictus Games uses the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick service men and women. Working with Prince Harry, the Games’ Founding patron, Ken led the effort to bring the Invictus Games to the United States. As challenges for America’s service members intensify, Ken has deepened his involvement with the military serving both the Democratic and Republic administrations. In 2007 he was appointed by the Bush Administration to the Presidents Commission on Care of America’s Returning Wounded Warriors tasked with conducting a comprehensive review of the care America provides to wounded service members returning from conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. For the past four years, Ken has served on policy roundtables in support of current U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter and former U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. Additionally, Ken serves on the Board of Directors for the United States Army Command and General Staff College, a graduate school for United States Army and sister service officers, interagency representatives, and international military officers. In 2012, Ken’s commitment and service was recognized with the Defense Distinguished Public Service Award, the Department of Defense’s highest civilian honor.
