University Hospitals seeks exec comms strategist

Cleveland’s University Hospitals seeks a senior strategist for executive communication to support the CEO and other leaders. “I would recommend it highly to those who want to feel a sense of purpose in their work and who can flourish in a demanding and dynamic environment,” says outgoing exec comms strategist Jim Nichols (he’s off to head CEO comms at USAA, in San Antonio). “My successor would have the opportunity to influence and improve the culture of an academic-medicine powerhouse—a $4 billion organization with 28,000 physicians and employees and a growing reputation for excellence in patient care and research. Succeeding in the job will require teamwork, trustworthiness, a thick skin, an absolute hunger for learning and an ability to derive satisfaction intrinsically. … The CEO ‘client’ is an extremely effective leader who is almost always the smartest and most driven person in the room.”
