Interim CEO immediately needed for healthcare portco

A PE firm VP came to us with a critical need for an interim CEO for their multi-location healthcare services portfolio company. The portfolio company was experiencing stalled performance and the firm was urgently seeking an interim CEO that could turn around this problem and improve performance. They not only needed the resource to have the necessary skills but also required that they be in the same city as the portfolio company’s headquarters in order to limit travel concerns.
