He manages the search process by thoroughly examining an organization’s culture, priorities and overall leadership needs and closely advising his clients during candidate sourcing and selection. He is known by healthcare trustees and senior executives in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions for his knowledge of the industry, personable style and candid, thoughtful counsel.
