If you’re in the 60+ age range and considering retirement soon, you may want to reconsider, says Charles W.B. Wardell III, president and CEO of executive search firm Witt/Kieffer.

According to Wardell, profes­sionals age 65 and older are now aggressively sought by savvy com­panies for leadership and mentorship roles.

In 2012, 14% of Witt/Kieffer’s CEO placements were in the 60+ range while 10 years ago it was closer to 3%.

Wardell advises execs to think of ages 65-75 as their “stretch” years where they can take advantage of their maturity and decision-making skills to benefit an organization where their passions lie.
