Parallon hires unit president, CEO

Former Mergis Group leader to oversee Franklin-based company's workforce management group

Parallon Business Solutions announced Tuesday it has appointed Brendan Courtney as president and chief executive officer of the Franklin-based company’s workforce management solutions business unit.

He will replace Jack Lisle, who retired last year.

Prior to joining Parallon, Courtney served as president at both Randstad Finance & Accounting, Randstad Human Resources and at The Mergis Group. He also spent more than 20 years in a variety of senior leadership positions with professional services and recruiting companies Spherion and A.J. Burton Group.

Courtney graduated from Johns Hopkins University.

“As a 25-year veteran in professional staffing and recruiting at top companies, Brendan’s leadership experience will enable Parallon to continue to evolve our workforce management products and services to stay at the forefront of clients’ needs,” Michael O’Boyle, Parallon president and CEO, said in a release. “With labor costs the single largest driver of spending growth for hospitals, innovative workforce management strategies play a critical role in Parallon’s goal to help providers tackle the formidable challenges they face with solutions that increase cash flow, reduce costs and gain operational efficiencies.”
