Lenexa, Kansas (PRWEB) January 09, 2012 B. E. Smith today announced that Mark Madden has been promoted to senior vice president, executive search.
Madden — who has more than 20 years of experience in senior-level executive recruitment — joined B. E. Smith in late 2010. B. E.

“Mark’s talent for assembling a slate of candidates who offer a precise degree of fit with the hiring organization is a tremendous asset to our clients,” Smith said. “His keen understanding of the complex demands facing today’s healthcare organizations, combined with his ability to partner with and inspire confidence among boards, executives, physicians and colleagues, have contributed significantly to the growth of our executive search division during the past year.”
As senior vice president, Madden will lead a team of seasoned executive search consultants whose placements consistently exceed the average industry tenure. Since 2007, B. E.
