Who: Wright Lassiter III, 51
New role: President of Henry Ford Health System, Detroit, effective Dec. 15. Lassiter is currently CEO of Alameda Health System, Oakland, Calif. He will become CEO of Henry Ford in late 2016, taking over for the retiring Nancy Schlichting.
Priorities during the transition: “I expect to learn about Henry Ford and ensure I have a great respect for all the positive attributes that exist in the organization. Nancy has been there for 16 years, and so I expect first and foremost to learn from her the rich history of the organization and how to appreciate all its assets.”
