For thousands of years Athens and Rome sent emissaries to Mount Parnassus on the southern coast of Greece with their weightiest matters of leadership and national interests. The ethos of that central source for thought and action that is bathed in wisdom inspires our work amongst the pivotal organizations that are changing the face of health.

“I had the pleasure of working with John and his firm for almost a decade. John and their entire team are without question the most professional and effective firm I’ve worked with during my 20 year healthcare career. They take the time to understand your business, and are very diligent about only sourcing candidates that are well qualified and have been thoroughly vetted.”

Bridge the Gap

We take great pride in learning our candidates’ stories and the ever-changing, complex strategies of our clients. Our job is to bridge the gap between businesses looking for leaders with true potential and the candidate that is looking for a meaningful pursuit. By investing our time and consideration into the stories on both sides of the conversation, we can create a dialogue during the vetting process that a candidate or business wouldn’t be ready to have on their own. The result isn’t just the right candidate, but a leader who can bring immediate and sustained impact.


We believe that top leaders today are looking to improve the health landscape for patients around the globe, and are driven by purpose as much as any paycheck. We aim to equip leaders with insights that address modern challenges and move healthcare forward.
