Martha Hauser Named Head of Health Care Practice at Diversified Search
PHILADELPHIA, October 4, 2016 — Martha Hauser, a well-known thought leader with more than two decades of experience recruiting leaders in healthcare and higher education across the country, has been named the new leader of the health care practice at Diversified Search, one of the top-ten executive search firms in the nation. Hauser assumed her duties immediately
Based in Atlanta, Hauser has earned a national reputation as a visionary and innovative thinker. Her clients include some of the country’s most prestigious hospitals, health care systems, academic medical centers, and service providers in the field, a list that includes Beaumont Health, Carolinas Healthcare System, Sentara Healthcare, Emory Healthcare, and the East Carolina School of Medicine, among others.
“Martha brings an incredible mix of talent, experience, passion, and heart to this very important practice within our company,” said Dale E. Jones, Diversified’s president and CEO. Jones is also no stranger to the Atlanta regional market: he worked for more than two decades as an executive and thought leader in it. “At a time when health care is driving the national conversation across businesses and fields, Martha is uniquely qualified to identify the men and women who should, and will, be its key forward-thinkers.”
“It’s an exciting time,” Hauser added. “We’ve experienced dramatic growth with key organizations. And we intend to continue growing, while remaining nimble and serving our clients as they respond to the dramatic changes occurring in the health care sector from consumer behavior to legislation to dramatic medical innovations. With every search, we want to find that unique leader who is going to make the difference in the future of our clients and in the health care field.”
A popular speaker, presenter, and innovator, Hauser possesses two master’s degrees— one in business administration, the other in education—from the University of Georgia, and worked as an educational psychologist before entering the field of professional search in 1985. She served as regional health care industry specialist for Spencer Stuart before opening the Atlanta office for Witt Kieffer, which under her stewardship grew into one of the top ten firms in the region. Hauser joined Diversified Search in 2013 as Regional Leader in the health care practice.
