  • “StarBridge Advisors has been a strategic partner to PeaceHealth and me personally. They quickly place top interim healthcare IT talent into key leadership openings. The Advisors that have assumed leadership positions within PeaceHealth have turned challenges into success stories.”

    Will Weider – SVP/CIO | PeaceHealth
  • “Acorn Credentialing Solutions engaged StarBridge Advisors to assess Acorn’s functionality and reliability. Sue Schade was knowledgeable, thorough and insightful. And her recommendations were constructive. Sue is the consummate professional and a pleasure to work with.”

  • “I highly recommend and value David Muntz’s contributions to WMCHealth. David showed a great deal of skill ranging from system selection, risk mitigation, governance, infrastructure design, applications portfolio and contracting – he was the whole package. His guidance brought credibility to all our efforts, with all our stakeholders, including those in the C-Suite and the Board Room. His skill mix, interpersonal traits, and hard work ethic made him an invaluable member of our team. We plan to continue this relationship and look forward to his guidance throughout the implementation phase. In many ways, he was the reason I could sleep at nights as we navigated this highly important phase of our organization’s development. “

    John Moustakakis – CIO | Westchester Medical Center Health
  • “Sue Schade provided me with the focus and direction I needed in coaching me through a recent career transition. As a fellow experienced healthcare IT female executive, her guidance and feedback were extremely beneficial and relevant to my journey. I appreciate the opportunity to have worked with her as an Executive Coach and value the relationship we developed as part of the experience.”

  • “Executive leadership is demanding, tough and time consuming. And while there is ‘never enough time’, it is my personal belief that a professional who chooses to no longer make time for their own learning and development is accepting the potential skill obsolescence that decision brings. During the time as my coach, Sue Schade assisted me in identifying the areas of development that were most relevant to both success in my current role and in direct alignment with the broader vision I have for my career. She challenged me to ask hard questions about this vision that resulted in a practical and targeted focus to my development efforts. Additionally, knowing that Sue could directly relate to the daily politics and pressures of my role added tremendous credibility to the guidance she provided me.”
