PR Newswire

DALLAS, Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In a field where mergers and acquisitions are up 11 percent since 2017 and massive regulatory changes always loom large, health system executives are seeking out THEO Executive Group, a healthcare transformational advisory firm that takes a unique perspective to guiding C-suite leaders through the industry's uncertain terrain. To meet increasing client demand, Dallas-based THEO recently added three new experts to its team.

Newest to the growing firm are Marc Desgraves IV, chief financial officer, who previously headed Desgraves CPA in Dallas, Texas, and Shannon Dwyer, senior advisor, who was executive vice president, special advisor to the CEO and general counsel of Providence St. Joseph Health in Irvine, California. They join Shauna Archer, chief operating officer, who was recruited in the fall to manage internal operations and position the organization as it experiences significant growth.

"Many healthcare institutions will perish in the next decade. Fewer will barely survive by adapting to the new environment. But the few that will thrive are the healthcare enterprises of the future," says THEO Executive Group CEO and owner Theo Theodosiou, who formed the organization after a successful career as a healthcare executive with Ernst & Young and a faculty member at Northwestern University. "These thriving organizations shape the environment. They are enterprises led by courageous leaders who embrace transformation and seek greatness for their institutions.  These leaders are the people we advise."

"I look forward to guiding organizations through the most rapid transformation in the history of U.S. health care," says Dwyer, whose expertise includes leading major U.S. health organizations through a long list of mergers and organizational transitions. "By its nature, healthcare is a field that must give back to the people who are served.  In these changing times, it's important that leaders remain focused on their values and priorities, even as everything seems to be evolving so quickly. When leadership is value-focused, both patients and organizations prosper."

"I've spent my career equipping scholars, entrepreneurs, and small businesses with tools for professional growth, and coaching them with habits for success, both through my professional and community work," says Desgraves, noted for his professional expertise and service to young people throughout the United States.  "In challenging times, leaders must answer the call, not just to manage their organizations, but to inspire others."

THEO Executive Group has made its mark through a values-based philosophy for executive leadership.  Eschewing current trends of focusing only on technical and management consultancy, THEO offers trusted advisors who guide executives to become visionary leaders. The THEO Methodology™ offers Concepts such as forming a community with staff members, creating vibrant workspaces, and sponsoring the next generation of leadership are advocated by the group's cadre of diverse advisor-experts, many of whom form career-long partnerships with their clients.

"With our industry knowledge and influence, THEO advisors are purposefully positioned to serve as the vital change-agents required by many organizations and systems," says Archer.  "Healthcare CEOs rely on us as their trusted partners because we embrace a mission of influencing and inspiring ideas that position organizations for positive transformation and ultimately create better healthcare for current and future generations."
