Jeff Kaye, Co-CEO of Kaye/Bassman International Featured on Dallas Business Journal's FaceTime Conversations with Top CEOs

Dallas, Texas - 7/23/2012:
What does it take to become a leader of case managers in 2011? Nursing and social work skills in depth, a knack for finance and systems, interpersonal skills, and a rare combination of sensitivity to patient needs and the thick skin sometimes required to advocate for the protection of those patients. And, now more than ever, managers of case managers must possess a finely honed ability to balance the ethical imperative to provide top-quality care with the financial imperatives of hospitals undergoing rapid change.
Given the financial strains wrought by macroeconomic malaise and health-care reform, there’s no way around it: To move up in a hospital case-management department, “a clinical case manager needs to understand business aspects of delivering services,” says Cheri Lattimer, RN, BSN, executive director of the Case Management Society of America.
Still, leaders in case management must remain deeply involved in their clinical calling. “Hospital executives don’t want someone who will sit at her desk all day,” says John Fulcher, director of health-care recruiting for Bauer Consulting Group in El Paso, Texas. “One of my clients who’s a director of case management has to go on rounds every day.”
There is no certain path to promotion in a case-management department, but there are diverse possibilities. “There are a few different routes to management,” says Brad Ellis, health-care division leader for recruiter Kaye/Bassman International in Plano, Texas. “It can be long tenure and superior performance in case management, or becoming an expert in a particular health-care IT system, or certifications in different areas. But you need a nursing background; social work alone doesn’t cut it anymore.”

Jeff Kaye would like to help you find a job. Or you could be your own recruiter — just put as much work into finding a job as the job you're interested in requires, he says. "It's about persistence and working on finding a job, like you're working for it — because you are," said Kaye, president and CEO of Dallas-based Kaye/Bassman International Corp. Kaye/Bassman has been open for more than 30 years and focuses on recruiting employees for mid- to upper-level management positions in industries such as oil and gas and health care. Earlier this year, Kaye/Bassman acquired Sanford Rose Associates, an executive search firm with more than 60 offices. 

It wasn't a planned acquisition; it came about after Kaye/Bassman launched a training program to help them and other companies train recruitment professionals. "We didn't go out and seek this opportunity, but it was something that happened because we were pursuing something we were passionate about," Kaye said. The Sanford Rose business will increase the firm's revenue by more than 100 percent year-over-year, he told Staff Writer Candace Carlisle in a recent conversation.
