College of American Pathologists Selects Charles Roussel as Its New Executive Vice President

NORTHFIELD, Ill., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The College of American Pathologists, a medical society serving more than 17,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world, today announced that Charles Roussel has been selected as Executive Vice President, responsible for the daily operations of the College and reporting to the Board of Governors.

"Charles has extensive experience in transformational change, as well as a passion for healthcare," said CAP President Jared N. Schwartz, M.D., Ph.D., FCAP. "We're excited to have recruited such an outstanding individual as the College embarks on its campaign to transform the specialty of pathology."

Roussel, 46, most recently was a director at The Atlantic Philanthropies, where he directed a $300 million global philanthropic investment portfolio that benefited disadvantaged children. He worked to bring healthcare back into schools and advocated for greater funding for preventive medical and mental health services.

Prior to that, Roussel was a Managing Partner at global consultancy Accenture, where he helped clients around the world envision and effect transformational change. He served as an executive level advisor to pharmaceutical and high technology companies, led the firm's research on personal and home health technology, and founded and led Accenture's mergers, acquisitions and alliances specialty group. He has written and spoken extensively on achieving growth through alliances.

"The CAP is a terrific organization -- well run and well led with a proud history," Roussel said. "It has an ambitious vision to transform the role of the pathologist, which I find compelling and achievable: to become an integral part of the patient care team, from risk assessment, through diagnosis and treatment, to monitoring. During our family's recent struggle with cancer, we were overwhelmed with data and often didn't know who to turn to. Pathologists grasp the fundamentals of disease. In partnership with others in healthcare, they can help patients better understand their diagnoses, prognoses, and options for therapy."

He added: "In the rapidly advancing era of personalized medicine and against a backdrop of ever-increasing health care costs, the College will have to leverage all of its considerable assets -- membership talent, intellectual and technological leadership, market presence, advocacy skills and reputation -- to bring about this vision. It is the opportunity of a lifetime to help lead this effort, and I feel privileged to be part of something that could help transform healthcare in America."

Roussel earned a BS from Bentley College and an MBA from the University Of Chicago Graduate School Of Business. He has served on the Board of Trustees of The Children's Aid Society of New York and Single Stop USA and on the Advisory Board of the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center in East Harlem, New York.

The College of American Pathologists is a medical society serving more than 17,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world. It is the world's largest association composed exclusively of pathologists and is widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance. The College is an advocate for high-quality and cost-effective medical care.
