Welcoming New Leadership
As MCW continues to grow and expand across our missions of education, research, clinical care and community engagement, our leaders remain committed to maintaining the inherent values of our institution in the face of ongoing changes in the healthcare environment. To aid us in this critical pursuit, in the past few months we welcomed three new leaders who bring significant passion and expertise to our team.
Gregory M. Wesley joined us in late 2016 as senior vice president, strategic alliances and business development. A former member of the MCW board of trustees, Mr. Wesley acts as a key strategic leader, ambassador and advisor for MCW, and is responsible for ensuring the execution of MCW's strategic initiatives through established and emerging partnerships. Mr. Wesley will deepen, nurture and create relationships with strategic partners, burgeoning enterprises and alliances, and others that support and create opportunities for MCW's long-term growth in Milwaukee, Madison and communities partnered with our regional campuses. His significant involvement with local and regional businesses, governments, civic organizations and philanthropic groups positions him well as a leader to grow and sustain MCW's critical partnerships and strategic initiatives.
In early January, we welcomed our inaugural chief diversity and inclusion officer, C. Greer Jordan, MBA, PhD, who provides strategic leadership including vision, management and strategic planning for institution-wide diversity and inclusion initiatives, and is responsible for developing a broad-reaching approach to enhancing the excellence of senior leadership and the entire workforce relating to diversity and inclusion.
Also in January, Barclay Ferguson assumed the role of chief financial officer. Mr. Ferguson most recently served as chief financial officer at Integrated Health Network, and has more than 20 years of experience growing enterprise value for large public and private healthcare and health insurance organizations.
I am confident that these new leaders, along with the many talented individuals already on the MCW team, will continue to foster a strong institutional culture while also helping us to build for a successful and transformational future – in which we hope you will play a part!
