On the Money: Bristol’s New Healthcare Placement

Bristol Updates

Established in 1988, the Stars Behavioral Health Group is a for-profit Behavioral and Mental Health organization with over 22 Program sites in California. They are mindful of succession in their company as several senior executives will be exiting within the next few years. Last year, their CFO retired and the existing Controller was promoted to that role. Stars needed to find a new Controller who would be based in the Bay Area.

Stars reached out to Kristina Paudler, Bristol’s head of Hospital & Healthcare Recruiting to handle the search. In keeping with Executive Search Firm Bristol Associates’ personalized service, Kristina met with both the CEO and Chief of HR & General Counsel and toured their Torrance facility to better understand the operation.

John Weller, Stars’ former CFO, is still consulting to Stars and explained that they were having a tough time finding someone with Behavioral Health-specific background.  Kristina’s efforts yielded Lorraine Meyer, a consultant with a healthcare background and the appropriate skill set. Lorraine was already living in Oakland.

John Weller recently conveyed Stars’ satisfaction with their new Controller: “Thanks for all your help on the Controller position.  We are very pleased with the result!”
