Presidentís Bio

John W. Packer, CPA, President, Insight Partners

John W. Packer, CPA, founded Insight Partners in 2009 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to provide mission-driven organizations with a diverse set of professional services. While initially focusing on nonprofit organizations (due to nearly 30 years of experience with large non-profit entities) his practice has grown and evolved so that it now serves a diverse client base including several for-profit small businesses.  He believes that this diversity of clients enables him to custom craft optimal solutions for his clients that enable CEOs to become better leaders, as opposed to simply being executive-level managers.

Mr. Packer earned his BS, Accounting and MBA degrees from Penn State University and is a licensed certified public accountant by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He is a member of the board of directors of WITF, Inc., serving on the Finance, Audit, and Government Relations Committees and Chair of Investment Committee. Additionally, he serves on the Board of Directors of Susquehanna Planned Giving Council, is a member of Rotary Club of Harrisburg, and is Past President of the Purdue University Crew Team Parents Club.

Iíve worked with John for years on the board of directors of WITF, where heís served as the chair of the investment committee, a key position for the organization. John has consistently impressed me with the thoroughness of his analysis, but more importantly with the practical nature of his review and recommendations. Heís also impressed me with the strength of his character. I would highly recommend John as an adviser to for- or non-profit organizations.
