Gail Wise, Ph.D.

Partner | Oshkosh, Wisconsin

“There is nothing more rewarding than helping clients strengthen their bench with high-impact talent.”

“As a relocation aficionado – from a Virginia farm to St. Louis, Louisville, Atlanta, Mexico City, and the ‘frozen tundra’ of Wisconsin — I am adept at reading people and situations. Curiosity is a huge asset.”

“At Ampersand, we’re real people with humility and a sense of humor. That makes us easy to work with. We are also professionals with the experience and expertise to have real impact. Everyone on the Ampersand team prides herself or himself on thinking carefully about what our clients need, and then crafting customized solutions to make sure we deliver. We don’t stop until we get the job done.”

Gail delivers purpose-driven solutions, including executive and organizational assessment, coaching, executive team alignment, and leadership development programs. Prior to entering consulting, she sat on the “other side of the desk” in field and headquarters-level operations, HR and training roles. She gives that chapter of her career a great deal of the credit for why she “LOVES her work” at Ampersand: “I have a deep respect for the challenges clients face and the pressure they feel to deliver results. It is incredibly rewarding to make a difference for them.”
