Kindred Names New COO
The company expects that these changes will take effect when the company has named a new president of the Hospital Division. The company has begun a national search to find Mr Breier’s successor.
Since March 2008, Mr Breier has served as president of the company’s Hospital Division, where he has led the development and implementation of new service excellence, continuous quality improvement, and sales and marketing programs. Prior to joining the company in August 2005, Mr Breier served as senior vice president of operations at Concentra.
Mr Battafarano has served as COO since March 2008. He served as executive vice president and president of the Hospital Division from February 2005 to March 2008 and as president of the Hospital Division from November 1998 to March 2008.
Paul Diaz, president and CEO of the company, said: “Ben is ready to step into the role of Chief Operating Officer and bring his considerable talents and energy to the enterprise. His appointment is a natural progression of our succession planning process.
“I want to thank Frank for his hard work, dedication and the leadership he has provided to the Company for these many years. I will miss Frank as a partner and friend. He brings a unique insight and throughout his career with Kindred he has provided invaluable leadership, helping us grow and develop into a leader in post-acute care.”
Will Mr Breier's experience help the company?
