It is with great excitement that I announce the addition of Rich Tinsley to the Stoneridge Partners team, as President and CEO. Our recent deal growth requires an increase in our back office support, marketing and deal origination efforts; Rich will oversee these functions and work transactions with our partners. I also will continue to work deal transactions; probably more than I ever have in the past. In concert with Rich, I look forward to being a part of the Stoneridge Partners team for many years to come!
In many ways Rich is the ideal executive for this position. He is both an Attorney and CPA and has broad experience in the healthcare and business development fields. He also serves as President of affiliate company AgentLink, a service provider to independent insurance agents. His previous experience includes roles at Signature Healthcare, where he served as Chief Development Officer as well as Vice Chairman of the company’s Home Care, Assisted Living and Residential Group Home segments. During Mr. Tinsley’s tenure, Signature continued a disciplined and selective acquisition strategy, closing transactions on more than 45 facilities with $350+ million in revenue.
Prior to that, Rich served as Chief Development Officer for ResCare and as their Executive VP of Workforce Solutions operations, where he oversaw a very active deal team looking at 100+ deals per year with revenue targets of approximately $100 million per year in acquisition growth. He also acted as vice president of compliance and business development for Almost Family, Inc.
Rich has served on numerous nonprofit and for-profit boards; providing financial, accounting, legal and acquisition/divestiture advice. He has a JD and an MBA from the University of Louisville, and is a Certified Public Accountant, a Certified Management Accountant and Certified Nursing Assistant. He is a great champion of continuously improving company culture, empowering a smarter workforce and giving individuals the entrepreneurial courage and resources to advance their careers.
Rich is not only an expert in healthcare M&A, he is also a great guy. I feel very lucky to add him to the Stoneridge Partners team. On a personal note, Rich lives in Louisville with his wife, Natalie, and their three children. He and Natalie spend the majority of their free time traveling and watching their children play competitive golf. They are also serial entrepreneurs and investors, their latest venture being TOM & CHEE, a specialty sandwich provider.
Please do not hesitate to contact me now or in the future.
