ZRG Names Leader Healthcare Services Practice Leader

September 4, 2018 – 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. Recently, ZRG Partners added Greg Gerson as a managing director and leader within the firm’s healthcare services practice.

Mr. Gerson brings over 17 years’ experience in executive search, as well as the healthcare sector. He was previously with Korn Ferry, where he was the leader in the healthcare market for professional search within the firm’s Futurestep division. He has also worked at Aon as a compensation expert in the healthcare sector.

“This is an important growth sector for ZRG Partners, and adding Greg is a valuable step in our continued expansion in this niche,” said Larry Hartmann, CEO of ZRG. “We have seen an amazing response from our hospital clients as they experience our Z Score tools. Our new interview insights platform, which creates an easy way to turn group interviewing into actionable data, is perfect for the hospital marketplace where collaborative interviewing is favored. Greg is the perfect leader to help us continue to support this sector.”

Mr. Gerson said he was excited to join the ZRG team, especially during this period of double digit growth for the firm. “I believe clients will best be served by a single point of contact delivering solutions across senior search, middle management and interim solutions for this sector,” he said. “Coupling this with industry leading tech enabled solutions, ZRG Partners will be disrupting the way hospitals and health systems address their talent needs.”

Continued Expansion

ZRG has experienced a wave of expansion this year. Here is an abridged overview of the firm’s growth from the Hunt Scanlon Media archives:

During the summer, the firm named Rahul Kapur as managing director and leader of ZRG’s newly launched blockchain unit and Bruce J. Robertson as managing director and head of the financial officer practice. The new blockchain practice will help the firm’s financial services, fintech and healthcare clients as well as those in emerging blockchain-centric industries meet the emerging talent needs required to capitalize on opportunities in the distributed ledger/blockchain space, said ZRG Partners. With deep expertise in payments and financial technology, Mr. Kapur previously held senior positions at PwC, Deloitte, Capgemini and MasterCard Advisors.

ZRG Partners also expanded its global human resource officers practice, adding Wendy Murphy as managing director and global practice leader. She will also be engaged in ZRG’s healthcare practice, where she has extensive experience in private equity healthcare searches.

Joining Ms. Murphy are several key leaders that have been collaborating for years, including Davonne Helmer, managing director, who will be working out of the firm’s Chicago office, and Allyson Hauck, principal, working out of ZRG’s Washington D.C. office.
