From the August 2016 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine
Mary Logan, the esteemed president of AAMI, announced almost a year ago that she would retire at the end of 2016.
And earlier this year, in the May issue of HealthCare Business News magazine, we paid a well-deserved tribute to Mary, whose seven-year run as the president of AAMI has been exemplary.
Whoever the incoming president is, he or she will be joining AAMI at a time of great change and opportunity for those in health care technology management. The profession has evolved significantly with an ever growing IT component that HTM people need to master. Unlike many other professional organizations that have a rotating, “honorary” presidency with a one-year term, the presidency of AAMI is a full-time position.
For that reason, the professional recruitment firm Korn Ferry has been retained to conduct the search for Mary’s replacement. The job profile posted by Korn Ferry outlines the 14 most significant job responsibilities. Key among them are:
Quest Imaging Solutions provides all major brands of surgical c-arms (new and refurbished) and carries a large inventory for purchase or rent. With over 20 years in the medical equipment business we can help you fulfill your equipment needs
• Collaborate with the Executive Committee and board to build AAMI’s strategic direction.
• Develop, implement and monitor progress of the business plans to ensure effective execution of the plans.
• Continue to cultivate and expand the reach and reputation while developing a strategy to define the reputation for which AAMI desires to be known.
• Attract, retain, motivate and develop AAMI’s strong staff team and culture.
• Maintain AAMI’s strong financial position by balancing programs that meet customer needs with AAMI’s financial resources. More importantly, the profile outlines a vision for the leadership of AAMI: someone who is eager to take charge and make AAMI an even more valuable asset to its membership. The search team believes that matching the leadership profile and having a solid executive-level background are more important than where the individual comes from. We expect the announcement of Mary’s successor sometime this fall. Stay tuned.
