A process that creates Lasting Results

We seek executives that are looking to build more than a great resume, they are seeking significant opportunities at mission-driven organizations.

93% of Parnassus placements still in place after 24 months
3.5 months is our average time to complete a VP level search
92% of our clients come back to us again and again for executive placements

There’s a reason that our placed executives thrive. We match leaders looking for meaningful pursuits with strategic, mission-driven organizations.

“I had the pleasure of working with John and his firm for almost a decade. John and their entire team are without question the most professional and effective firm I’ve worked with during my 20 year healthcare career. They take the time to understand your business, and are very diligent about only sourcing candidates that are well qualified and have been thoroughly vetted.”

-Paul Lamendola, Chief Development Officer, American Dental Partners


We take great pride in learning our candidates’ stories and the ever changing, complex strategies of our clients. Our job is to bridge the gap between businesses looking for leaders with true potential and the candidate that is looking for a meaningful pursuit. By investing our time and consideration into the stories on both sides of the conversation, we can create a dialogue during the vetting process that a candidate or business wouldn’t be ready to have on their own. The result isn’t just the right candidate, but a leader who can bring immediate and sustained impact.


We believe that top leaders today are looking to improve the health landscape for patients around the globe, and are driven by purpose as much as any paycheck. We aim to equip leaders with insights that address modern challenges and move healthcare forward.

Our clients represent a diverse mix of industries within the global healthcare space from patient services to technology and innovation.
