In 2002, Etheline Desir founded Desir Group based on input she received from a variety of sources along with her own firsthand observations, which included an American College of Healthcare Executives survey revealing that minorities held less than 2% of the executive positions in the healthcare industry.
Under her guidance, Desir Group has made significant contributions in that regard, placing a significant number of qualified minorities in key leadership positions. Her commitment to mentoring, coaching and guiding the careers of leaders can be seen in the sustainable relationships she has built throughout the country. Her contribution to professional associations such as ACHE, NAHSE, IFD, NADOHE has also had an indelible impact. The Desir Group team takes pride in reaching back and pulling up those that need a slight boost to propel their careers.
Building on her Fortune 100 experience in banking, finance and technology as well as her experience working with top-tier search firms, Etheline has developed a highly respected healthcare search practice with an enviable client roster.
