Buffkin / Baker Names Steve Marsh Partner
Buffkin / Baker, a partner-led executive search firm, is pleased to announce the addition of Steve Marsh as a partner in its healthcare practice. Marsh will be responsible for leading the health care delivery vertical of the firm’s health care practice, serving health systems, AAMC institutions, not-for-profit and for-profit hospital and medical groups with physician executive and health care executive searches.
Marsh brings nearly 30 years of experience in health care recruiting. He spent the first two decades of his career in clinical search and is one of the original founders of The Medicus Firm, one of the largest clinical recruiting search firms in the country. The Medicus Firm was acquired by M3, USA, Inc. in 2015. Marsh then founded M3 Executive Search as a separate subsidiary, successfully building an executive search team and conducting executive searches for a wide array of recognized health care clients across the U. S.
“We are delighted to welcome Steve to the Buffkin / Baker team. His demonstrated success in health care and academic medicine executive recruiting will add another layer to our capabilities and bring substantial value to our clients across the country,” said Craig Buffkin, managing partner. “His experience makes him the right person to lead our client engagements within academic medicine, integrated health care systems, not-for-profit and for-profit medical centers, payor groups, and medical groups. We look forward to the value he brings to the team and to our clients as we help them secure the health care leaders required in today’s evolving environment.”
Marsh has been cited as an innovative leader in numerous national media publications and serves as a keynote and guest speaker at nationwide health care conferences and forums on various topics related to health care recruiting process “best practices,” maintaining a positive workplace culture, diversity/inclusion and contract negotiation.
“I am thrilled to make the transition to Buffkin / Baker. I wanted to spend the last several years of my career working in a private firm environment, and Buffkin / Baker’s established platform, long history of success in health care executive search, and incredible group of people made this an easy decision,” said Marsh. “I am excited to share the Buffkin / Baker story with health care clients across the country as we provide the highest level of service, commitment and value in the executive search industry.”
