In speaking with Jeannette about Tim’s appointment, she said, “I am very excited and pleased that Tim will be appointed as my successor. He is an outstanding and knowledgeable professional. Tim exudes creativity, a sense of humor, openness to change, respect for others and, most of all, has a huge servant’s heart. I can leave my McLeod family feeling very confident that they are in the best of hands with Tim at the helm.”
As a Senior Vice President, Tim will be a member of the Leadership Council at McLeod Health. In this capacity, he will lead the creation of the strategic management plan for Human Resources.
