Today’s guest is Andrew Calkins, the CEO of Sage Family of Companies. Andrew has extensive experience as a healthcare executive in a wide range of healthcare delivery organizations including long-term care, hospice, home health, and outpatient mental health. In this podcast, we talk about how he went from a clerk in the mailroom to managing complex, geographically dispersed organizations. Andrew’s career journey put him in contact with several private equity firms as he went through numerous mergers and acquisitions. We talk about what it is like to lead through a sale, and we talk about how private equity operates. I think one of the key take-aways from Andrew’s story, especially for early careerists, is how important professional reputation is, and how important it is to build a strong professional network.
