These transformations provided deep expertise in large scale expense reduction measures, post-merger integrations, and process and operational improvements. He also led engagements supporting the business and market strategies of life science and medical device manufacturers, enabling a unique perspective when navigating Manufacturer and Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) relationships.

In his role at The Johns Hopkins Health System he is leading a series of changes that restructure, rebuild, and realign the Supply Chain. Clinical integration is at the core of this change, promoting a vision for supply chain that supports and advances the institution’s mission to deliver outstanding care.
