Search firm hired to find new CKHA boss


The search for a replacement for the retiring Lori Marshall is underway by the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance.

Marshall, president and CEO of the CKHA, is set to retire this summer. To seek a replacement, the CKHA board has selected Mirams Becker as the executive search firm to lead the recruitment process.

Hospital officials said in a media release that using an executive search operation helps ensure “the hospital receives specialized knowledge and guidance during the recruitment process.”

“I am delighted that Mirams Becker will be guiding us through this crucial executive search process to find our next president and CEO,” Deb Crawford, CKHA’s chair of the hospital board, said in a media release. “Lori has built a legacy at CKHA that began with a major transformational change in the organization’s culture and operations. Through challenges such as a global pandemic and a cyber attack, she has continued to lead CKHA with a compassionate approach all while ensuring the organization achieved its goals. It’s imperative for us to seek an executive with solid and compassionate leadership skills and a track record of driving strategic initiatives.”

In 2020, Penny Mirams and Hayley Becker formed Mirams Becker, a retained health care executive search firm.
