April 20, 2017 – Healthcare is among the most rapidly growing employment fields, according to analysts at Hunt Scanlon Media, which tracks trends in the executive search and leadership solutions space. This has led to an increased need for recruiting firms to deliver top drawer leaders throughout the sector. Executive search firm Slone Partners recently placed CEOs at Avomeen Analytical Services and La Peer Health Systems. Here’s a closer look at both recent assignments.
The search firm landed Mark Harvill as CEO for Avomeen Analytical Services. In his new role, he will lead and oversee all aspects of the business, including sales, marketing, strategy, operations, finance, and compliance. His extensive leadership expertise and industry knowledge will now be called upon to expand the company’s operations and increase its marketshare.
Mr. Harvill is a life sciences expert with a proven track record in strategic global business development and operations. Previously, he served as chief operating officer at Clinipace Worldwide, where he led global service delivery units. He also held several leadership positions, including president and COO at Paragon Biomedical, senior vice president at Ingenix/i3 STATPROBE, and EVP at STATPROBE, Inc.
“We are pleased to welcome Mark aboard to execute the next steps in Avomeen’s progression as a national leader in the custom product research & development space, and we look forward to reaching new heights as we pursue our aggressive growth goals in the years ahead,” said Rob France, principal of High Street Capital, the company’s majority shareholder.

His leadership and broad health-wellness experience will be instrumental in achieving La Peer’s patient acquisition and revenue growth objectives.

He previously served as senior director of operations at Surgical Care Affiliates/DISC Sports and Spine, as VP of business development at Sovereign Healthcare/Cedars Sinai/Karlan-Jobe Institute, and as VP of operations at ONRAD Medical Group.

Daniel Brazell stood out as the ideal match. In addition to having the appropriate skills, expertise, and overall professional background, he is also a perfect cultural fit for La Peer.”
