Coleman Lew Leading President Search for McLeod Center

December 5, 2016 – Executive search firm Coleman Lew + Associates has been tapped to lead the president search for McLeod Center, an alcohol and drug treatment services provider.

The president position reports to the board of directors and oversees the McLeod Center to ensure that the mission, strategy, values, and goals of the organization are achieved. The incoming leader will carry out all policies, programs, and resolutions approved or adopted by the board and advise on the formulation of those policies, programs, and resolutions.

Key Qualifications

The McLeod Center seeks a leader with a minimum of 10 years of leadership experience within a human services organization. A track record as a highly organized leader who is adept at leading human resources, budgeting, financial planning, and operations within a dynamic, multi-site organization is required. Founded in 1969, the non-profit McLeod Center has grown to be the largest provider of comprehensive alcohol and drug treatment services in North Carolina.

Established in 1979, Coleman Lew + Associates recruits CEOs, board members and senior leaders for wide range of public, private, and international companies; academic institutions; nonprofit organizations; and government agencies.

Healthcare Leaders In Demand

No field is changing more, or more rapidly, today than healthcare. Leaders in the field, according to recruiters at Coleman + Lew, must be nimble, flexible, resolute, business-minded, and have an innate passion for people’s health and wellbeing.

The U.S healthcare system has undergone the most dramatic reform in over three decades, shifting towards a team-based care model driven by value-based reimbursements and capitated contracts for population health management,” said John Gramer, president of Cejka Search, a national search firm that has focused on placing physicians and healthcare leaders for more than 35 years.

“As a result, healthcare organizations are undergoing major clinical, operational and technological transformations, causing organizations to re-evaluate the kind of business and clinical leaders they need to successfully deliver care in this new environment.”

At the same time, he said, the U.S. is facing increasing demand for healthcare services, thanks to the aging population and surge in the newly insured, and not enough physicians are available to meet that demand. “So, healthcare organizations are looking for expanded skill sets in one of the most resource-constrained employment markets in decades,” said Mr. Gramer. “The result is fierce competition for top healthcare talent, and growing demand for organizational design, succession planning and search services to help define and build the healthcare leadership teams of the future.”
