Armed with over 20 years of senior executive and corporate board experience across multiple industries and sectors, I am ready for a bold new career adventure. I recently announced that I am not renewing my CEO contract at KGH after taking the organization from one that was under government supervision because of serious financial and operational risks when I arrived in 2009, to one that is now a thriving, high performing, award winning academic health science center.
Having led the implementation of 5 other mergers/ amalgamations before the KGH turnaround, I know what it takes mobilize hearts and minds of diverse stakeholder groups as they move through periods of major change, and to help them achieve results beyond what anyone ever imagined possible. My strategy? Keep the patient at the forefront, and everything will unfold from there.
From my private sector experience with three publicly traded companies across different industries ( retail, medical technology, seniors housing), I know that leaders who can inspire their teams to deliver long term value to customers and shareholders are the ones who win. I have been part of major business model shifts, global strategy design, mergers and acquisitions, and rapid business expansions within industry leading companies. These companies all share a relentless focus on making the customer experience great while delivering strong financial results and upholding the highest business integrity standards.
Together these experiences, along with my love of writing, teaching and public speaking, have shaped the leader I am today, and the type of opportunity I want to pursue tomorrow.
Now, onward toward the next adventure!
