Linus Diedling, Executive Vice President Schumacher Clinical Partners
"We called on Right Advisory to provide the financial and operational expertise to our team supporting a major M&A transaction in Chicago. Robert Tarola and Bridget Sarikas served in those roles and were instrumental in completing that engagement and ensuring a follow-on interim management assignment with the target enterprise. I would engage Right Advisory again for their expertise and their approach to solving client issues."
Keith A. Hovan, President and CEO Southcoast Health System
"More than two years ago, Bob Tarola and Bridget Sarikas joined Southcoast and stabilized our finance division leadership. At that time, we were coming off a very difficult year. Bob established a trust with senior leaders and our Board members as he set a course toward fiscal clarity and stability. Bridget similarly established a rigor in our supply chain and accountability processes that generated significant savings that directly contributed to our improved financial performance. Together they helped re-establish Southcoast's credibility with lenders that allowed for a new $80 million facility."
Dr. Sidney A. Ribeau Retired President, Howard University
"I engaged Right Advisory in 2009 to help me, as the new President of Howard University, identify and resolve an inherited structural deficit. The Right Advisory principals, led by Bob Tarola, and their professional network quickly provided insight into root causes, helped stabilize the situation, installed a new level of financial discipline, and positioned the University for strategic renewal. They brought a sophistication to financial matters and a credibility in the capital markets that allowed Howard to attract over $500 million of new financial support." *See Attached For Right Advisory's Engagement Successes - Howard University
Stephen J. Grubbs President and CEO, Covenant Health, Inc.
"Approximately three months ago, Covenant Health contracted the services of Robert Tarola to serve as the Interim Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for the system...He has contributed to several valuable departmental process improvements and brought additional insight into our monthly financials through a new daily dashboard, which has helped the corporate leadership team better track and manage performance in real-time. We are thankful for the time we have had with Bob and for the impact he has had on our organization."
Michael B. Neely Principal, Perimeter Solutions
"I led the supply chain function at Southcoast Health in 2016 and 2017 as a contract executive. Southcoast had an annual supply/services spend of over $300 million. Bridget Sarikas of Right Advisory was my immediate supervisor as contract Associate CFO. Bridget provided leadership over the supply chain function at a professional level higher than I had previously experienced at any of the multiple healthcare systems that I have worked with across the country. She led by example working side-by-side with buyers and logistics personnel willingly sharing her knowledge and expertise. Her management style and professionalism were respected by the workforce and operations customers alike. I would highly endorse her and Right Advisory to lead any complicated supply and services organization in the healthcare space."
Erin C. Klein Director, Supply Chain Management
"This testimonial is to express my exceptional experience working with Bridget Sarikas. I run the supply chain function at Little Company of Mary Hospital, which has a $100 million spend. Before Bridget arrived as my supervising executive, I didn't have a global perspective or responsibility of the total supply chain spend across the system and how I could effectively impact and manage toward a specific target. Bridget guided me through a significant transformation using value analysis, accountability and negotiating techniques that were very helpful in assuring we were successful in reaching our annual goal. She was extremely knowledgeable and her mentoring was key to my effectiveness in the role. It was clear that she had an understanding of how to best manage supplies and services in a healthcare provider environment. I valued her collaborative approach and hands on management style."
Daniel I. Bernstein Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer, Campus Apartments
"Campus Apartments worked for more than three years to propose, design, finance and construct two new dormitories for a major national university. The project was bogged down and ill-managed until Right Advisory assumed a leadership role in 2012. In fact, we would have not moved forward on the project except for the involvement of Right Advisory."
Receiving Bond Deal of the Year Award
Steve E. Hicks, President and CEO Provident Resource Group
"Provident Resource Group has facilitated over $1.5 billion in capital projects serving its missions and improving the quality of communities it serves across the country. The professionals from Right Advisory,led by Bob Tarola, were instrumental partners with us in managing the award winning bond deal that created the first new dormitories for the students of Howard University in over 20 years. We are proud of our affiliation with Right Advisory."
Francis X. Ryan, KM Colonel, USMCR (retired)
"I have worked with Right Advisory and its principals for many years. They have helped clients and companies accomplish extraordinary business improvements through insightful and disciplined financial management practices. Their track record with business turnarounds should give any organization confidence when seeking their advice."
Keith S. Overland, DC President, American Chiropractic Association
“The American Chiropractic Association engaged Right Advisory in 2012 to assess its business strategy, operational effectiveness and financial condition. The principals conducted interviews and examined internal documents. Their observations and recommendations were insightful and actionable. ACA is in the process of implementing many of the ideas put forth by Right Advisory.”
Kenneth L. Urish CEO and Managing Partner, Urish Popeck & Co., LLC
"Urish Popeck & Co. has worked collaboratively with Right Advisory for almost five years. We help them bring a broad capability to solve client problems. Right Advisory provides the deep knowledge and experience of former and current C-suite officers. While we bring a breadth and depth of professional accounting, tax and finance personnel. Together we have added value to client situations well beyond the cost of service."
