  • “David came to my rescue when I unexpectedly lost my VP over Operations during our Epic implementation. He was able to lead the Operations teams through urgent projects as well as provide me with a written assessment of my IT organization’s strengths and weaknesses. David helped me interview VP candidates and then oriented the new VP to bring him up to speed quickly. It was a life saver to bring in a trusted and seasoned executive whom I knew could walk side by side with me through this difficult time.”

  • “Sue Schade was an incredibly helpful partner during the change of leadership within the Information Technology Division. She was engaged to participate in the recruitment process as well as to provide mentoring to interim leadership. Her broad experience and strong interpersonal skills were invaluable to us. She was instrumental in assuring the successful transition.”

    Pam Whelton – EVP/Chief Financial and Administrative Officer Administrative Services | South Shore Health System
  • “I had the opportunity to follow Sue as the CIO for University Hospitals in Cleveland. Prior to, and during our transition, I got to know Sue’s work as the Interim CIO. Unlike many others who hold that title, Sue provided strong leadership to the entire organization. She stabilized an environment that had seen a significant change in leadership. Sue was not the typical Interim CIO, but rather a strong CIO who just happened to work at this organization a short time. It has been a pleasure to work with Sue and I cannot imagine a stronger professional in an interim role.”

    Joy Grosser – Chief Information Officer | University Hospitals
