New roles allow HOK’s Healthcare practice to better support the firm’s design teams, projects and clients.
HOK’s Healthcare business unit is adopting a new regional structure. Effective this month, Chris Korsh and Mitchell Collin are joining Amine Khemakhem, Paul Strohm and Scott Rawlings as Directors of Healthcare. Each will have a geographical focus:
- Amine Khemakhem – West Coast, Asia and the Middle East
- Chris Korsh – Northeast, Canada and UK
- Mitchell Collin – Southeast
- Paul Strohm – Midwest
- Scott Rawlings – National resource for strategic initiatives and design advancement
“Chris and Mitch bring great additional resources to our award-winning healthcare design team,” said HOK Co-CEO Eli Hoisington. “Both have a history of managing multiple studios, delivering successful projects, securing new business and developing staff that will ensure our Healthcare group continues to grow and diversify.”
The regionally distributed leadership structure will make it easier to build project teams from across the firm and support regional Healthcare leaders in business development, strategy and thought leadership. It also allows firmwide leaders to mentor staff and understand unique regional healthcare approaches to better serve clients.
Additional Healthcare promotions in the regional HOK studios include:
- Laura Poltronieri, new Regional Leader of Healthcare for the Northeast
- Karen Carvalho, Healthcare Practice Leader for Florida
- Kathleen Schwarz new Director of Healthcare Consulting, who will continue to work closely with Anthony Roesch in his new role as Senior Healthcare Strategist.
The new regional leaders will join Belinda Young, who was promoted last year to Regional Leader of Healthcare for Northern California and the Pacific Northwest.
“These changes will position us to support our people as designers and leaders,” said Chief Strategy Officer Riccardo Mascia. “Most importantly, they will allow us to continue to grow to better meet the diverse challenges of our clients and their patients.”
