John Koenigsknecht Named to Crain's 2021 Notable Nonprofit Board Leaders

Neal Gerber Eisenberg is proud to announce that Corporate & Securities chair John Koenigsknecht was selected among Crain's Chicago Business 2021 Notable Nonprofit Board Leaders.

As President of the CommunityHealth Board of Directors, John and his engaged leadership were on display over the past year as he led the board to fulfill their mission to serve those without access to essential healthcare during the most critical of times. 

The list honors leaders who met the challenges of the past year with their commitment to community service.  Despite social services and health care organizations being overwhelmed with requests, especially from the city's oft-neglected neighborhoods, these recognized board leaders helped continue carrying out their organization's mission.

John Koenigsknecht, chair of the corporate and securities practice group and an equity partner at Neal Gerber Eisenberg, has served for more than 12 years with CommunityHealth, the nation’s largest volunteer-based health center. Under his leadership, CH revised each of its committee charters, and he was on the team that produced an ambitious three-year strategic plan. Koenigsknecht helped plan the hosting of the All In Thought Leadership Initiative and arranged for Neal Gerber Eisenberg to provide legal services to CH on a pro bono basis. Shortly after Koenigsknecht helped recruit a new executive director, CH administered thousands of COVID-19 tests and vaccinations and opened the first telehealth microsite in Illinois.
