Carmen Kenrich & April Hannon

Posted by on Jan 31, 2018 in The LFT Blog | 0 comments

It’s a great way to kick off the New Year by announcing the promotions of two talented, deserving people. It’s sort of a holiday present for them and for me.

First, let’s talk about Carmen Kenrich. Carmen has been promoted to Vice President, Business Development. For those of you who don’t know Carmen, she worked for 15 or so years in hospital operational leadership roles in and around Boston before switching over to Phillips DiPisa where she was an executive recruiter for the past decade. Her background is really powerful as she has both first-hand knowledge of what hospitals need to be successful, and she has an extensive network of people she has worked with over the past 25 years. LFT was really fortunate to have Carmen join us as she has brought with her an energy and passion that is hard to match. Very few people care about their clients as much as Carmen does, and it shows in her work.

Second, April Hannon has been named Director of Recruiting. We were absolutely thrilled when April decided to join the LFT team. She has a terrific legacy of hospital HR leadership at New England Baptist and then at Brigham & Women’s hospitals. As she mentioned to me early on in her tenure at LFT, it is great to be able to focus on a small number of challenging searches and do them really well, rather than 60 or 70 simultaneous searches where you are struggling to keep your head above water. April brought with her an acute understanding of hospital human capital needs, which continued to add to our organization’s knowledge base. More importantly, though, she came with an incredibly calm demeanor and an amazing infectious work ethic that has produced some fabulous results for clients on some really hard searches. She will be assuming the direction of the recruiting team, serving as their leader, their mentor, and their friend. We love having her as part of our growing team.

Health care delivery is a human capital based industry. Just as our staffing business is. It’s all about identifying and keeping really good people. So the promotions of Carmen and April are really satisfying to me. There is nothing better than a growing team of great, committed talent!

Give us a call if we can help.
