Chicago, IL., July 14, 2023

InveniasPartners, a leading healthcare executive search and talent advisory services firm, is pleased to announce that Jamie Cassedy has joined the firm as a Managing Partner. 

Cassedy joins InveniasPartners, from another boutique firm, where he spent the past nine years leading client engagements for some of the nation’s top healthcare organizations. Based in the firm’s Chicago office, Cassedy will play a lead role in expanding InveniasPartner’s position as healthcare’s premier, boutique search firm. His clients include health plans, integrated health systems, community hospitals, academic medical centers, professional associations, and emerging healthcare companies.

“We are very pleased to welcome Jamie to the InveniasPartners team,” said Curt Lucas, Managing Partner and Chairman of InveniasPartners. “Jamie possesses tremendous depth and breadth in healthcare executive talent advisory services; coupled with his leadership experience, his values and mission for excellence in client service; Jamie will add immediate value to InveniasPartners.”

Leveraging nearly 20 years of experience, Cassedy leads executive assignments with companies ranging in size from PE backed start-ups to publicly traded organizations and large, non-profit healthcare systems. Throughout his career, he has successfully completed over 150 C-suite and senior-level healthcare executive searches in the areas of operations, finance, medical affairs, nursing, human resources, and other disciplines. Over the years, Cassedy has developed a deep and wide network within the healthcare sector. Among Cassedy’s most notable engagements, he was responsible for the placement of the System CFO for a $40B healthcare system and the CEO of a publicly traded healthcare analytics company.

“Jamie’s addition to InvenaisPartners reflects the significant growth we have seen as a firm,” said Scott Cooper, Managing Partner. “As healthcare organizations face unprecedented challenges and a wave of executive retirements, we’ve seen an increased demand for new, innovative talent solutions. With his expertise, contemporary approach, and ability to build deep, authentic relationships, Jamie will be a valuable resource to our clients and executive candidates.”

A consummate professional who is highly driven to succeed, Cassedy began his career as a commodities trader at the Chicago Board of Trade where he focused primarily in the options trading industry. He transitioned to executive search in 2004 as a generalist, subsequently defining his focus on healthcare services a few years later. Cassedy’s executive search experience has ranged from boutique firms to one of the largest, privately held firms in the industry.

"I'm excited to join InveniasPartners as it continues its impressive growth in healthcare executive search," said Cassedy. "The organization's collaborative approach promotes a sense of unity, allowing us to capitalize on each other's expertise and unique perspectives, to deliver exceptional results to our clients. I look forward to building on the firm's history of delivering search at the highest level."

Cassedy holds a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
