Job Details

This role requires:

Expertise and advance experience in financial modeling: Sr. Director must have expert quantitative analysis and critical reasoning skills to structure and carry out analyses, including ability to understand complex contracts and design and execute complex financial analyses (e.g.. dynamic modeling in Excel). Experience in financial services firms preferred.
Managerial deft: Position includes leading a growing team which currently has a support staff of 9 employees, including a Sr. Manager of Revenue Cycle and several analysts. The candidate must have the ability to develop and mentor team members in a fast paced, complex environment while staying up to date on the market and strategic vision of our health system and marshalling team resources toward those ends.
Familiarity with routine FP&A processes: The Sr. Director is the quarterback of the monthly accounting close and leads the preparation of the annual operating budget and quarterly forecast. A background in retail pharmacy operations, billing and reimbursement is a plus. A comfort level in working closely with accounting partners and proven success in building financial controls, particularly for the national for-profit pharmacy managed services company, which includes understanding for-profit tax complexities is preferred. Additionally, must understand and communicate the economic contribution of the business, especially under different scenarios.
Communications ability: Must be highly effective at communicating with various department leaders including accounting and budget, legal and IT. Role also requires close coordination with health plan pharmacy leads on key assumptions that impact the business, and coordination with Revenue Cycle Management (for proactive identification of AR issues). Ideal candidate has superb communication skills to distill complicated issues into clear recommendations, as well as strong interpersonal skills to navigate competing stakeholder interests
Confidence and adaptability to tackle complex and unstructured problems: Beyond the ability to think on one's feet, the role requires a natural curiosity and willingness to take ownership in going beyond the obvious to understand the "why" of the drivers of our economic reality, and leading analysis to identify the hidden issues (e.g. pointing out issues like: concentration of revenue, excessive costs/buying, FTE growth and "runaway hiring," etc.)
Ability to organize and structure work: Beyond being a self-starter with ability to work under high pressure and prioritize staff and resources to meet competing deadlines, the role requires the ability to look at what's required, develop an efficient critical path, and tactfully break work into work streams and resources (human capital and otherwise) required to meet goals.
Optimize data and workflows: Critical to this role is an understanding of data from various software and systems to ensure integrity of revenue and expenses. For example the team relies heavily on Access databases, SQL, and Infor. In addition to a broad understanding of where data lives and how it is structured, the role requires the ability to build processes, design standard operating procedures, optimize workflows and lead KPI Development for managing the health of the business (including leading indicators, metrics to drive better operations, etc.)
