Leadership Team

BillHaylonBill Haylon  •  CEO

Bill is a long time entrepreneur who has spent a good portion of his career (though not all) in healthcare. He came to Leaders For Today with the belief that the organization could combine better processes and technology to create a faster, higher quality staffing solution for hospitals and other health care delivery organizations. While no organization is perfect, LFT has made very real strides in building a superior service offering to its competitors. The hope and expectation is to continue to get better and to add product lines that are faster and less expensive for our clients while always improving the candidate quality that we offer.

For fun, a change of pace, and to take a break from his four children, Bill writes novels.

derek-vogelDerek Vogel  •  Chief Operating Officer

A former professional basketball player, Derek brings his familiar athletic determination and competitiveness to the healthcare arena. Perhaps the most honest, trusted advisor that anyone could ever have, Derek has been a big part of LFT’s success and growth over the past four years. Derek has spent his entire career since basketball working in healthcare — first for Neighborhood Diabetes, a provider of diabetes therapies and training with a unique model where Derek helped lead the company’s growth, and then for LFT. As our COO, his imprint is on virtually everything we do as an organization, from who we hire to building a better search process to creating a culture of determination and success. LFT would not be where it is today without Derek.

Derek does not have any hobbies or spare time as he is always working.
