Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) February 11, 2015
PYA today announced that Marty Brown, Managing Principal of Consulting Services, has been elected by Firm owners to the role of President of PYA, a position formerly held by PYA Co-Founder Ed Pershing. Pershing remains with the firm, assuming the responsibility of Chief Executive Officer, where his focus will be on continued growth and success of the Firm through selected strategic initiatives and tactical actions.
“On behalf of the owners of PYA, we are extremely pleased and proud to announce that, by a unanimous vote, Marty Brown has been chosen to serve as President of PYA effective January 1, 2015,” said Pershing. “Marty has consistently exhibited strong leadership, while demonstrating his ability to foster a team environment. He possesses a keen interest in the success of all elements of PYA and its affiliate companies. We are confident that in this role he will effectively lead the Firm and further fuel its ongoing growth.”
Brown joined PYA in October 1991, immediately making major contributions to its growth and success. Shortly thereafter, he was asked to assume the leadership position of PYA’s physician services group. “In that role, Marty energized employees and garnered the confidence of clients. His positive impact was immediately felt and was reflected in the Firm’s improved services to physicians and related growth,” Pershing said.
Brown most recently has served as Managing Principal of Consulting Services, in which he was instrumental in overseeing major firm initiatives, including initial discussions with Gates Moore leaders that ultimately led to a merger with the Atlanta-based firm in 2012.
“I am honored and humbled that Firm owners have selected me to serve in this leadership capacity,” said Brown. “I look forward to PYA’s continued success, and together with my colleagues, the future contributions we can make to help the Firm and our many clients achieve their long-term goals. We are committed to providing exceptional professional services that will enhance our clients’ experience.”
A graduate of the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Brown is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) with nearly 30 years of experience in healthcare. He has worked extensively with health systems, law firms, and physician groups and has performed well over 200 business valuations across industries. He is often asked to testify as an expert witness in litigation support engagements and has provided opinions on more than 1,000 fair market value compensation analyses covering all physician specialties.
