Diversified Search, one of the top ten executive search firms in the nation, announced that Lyn Brennan, a search executive with deep experience in the healthcare and life sciences arenas, will join the firm’s Healthcare Services Practice as a Managing Director. She will be based in Diversified’s New York office, beginning May 8.
“The opportunity to be part of one of the most dynamic and growing healthcare practices in the field of executive search was simply too good to pass up,” said Brennan. “The team is top-notch, with a deep knowledge of healthcare, life sciences, and the major players in both. I am excited to be part of this top-drawer team, and to expand its reach even further.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Lyn into the Diversified fold, and think she will be a key asset to our healthcare team as we continue to build our already significant business in this constantly changing, unpredictable sector,” said Diversified President and CEO Dale E. Jones. “Her track record is impeccable. We are deeply honored that she has decided to join us.”
Brennan’s appointment is the latest step by Diversified Search to continue expanding its footprint in the healthcare and life sciences sectors. Last fall, Diversified acquired BioQuest, the highly-regarded San Francisco-based boutique life sciences search firm.
Brennan began her career in search in 1998, as a Vice President and Director at Isaacson Miller in Boston. Specializing in healthcare and life sciences, she subsequently worked in similar roles at Amrop Battalia Winston and, most recently, at Heidrick & Struggles. Prior to her career in executive search, Brennan, a registered nurse with degrees from both Georgetown and New York University, worked as a practice leader in healthcare operations at Ernst & Young, and as a director of healthcare operations and quality at Coopers & Lybrand. She resides in Connecticut.
“Lyn is a versatile and high-energy executive who manages to be both creative and results-oriented,” added Martha C. Hauser, Diversified’s Healthcare Services Practice Leader. “Her depth and breadth of experience is formidable, particularly in growth sectors such as integrated health systems, academic medicine, and not-for-profits. I am honored and excited to have her as part of our growing healthcare team.”
