The Walden Group, a Specialized Strategic Healthcare Investment Banking Firm, Adds Key Advisory Services

Dan Doyle (former President of C.R. Bard Patient Care) and Diane Thome (former Healthcare Market Research Executive) Join The Walden Group

Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) -- The Walden Group, Inc., a specialized investment banking firm focused on merger and acquisition (M&A) and strategic growth services for companies in the healthcare industry, is pleased to announce that Daniel J. Doyle and Diane Thome are now associated with the firm.

Mr. Doyle is the former President of C.R. Bard's Patient Care Division where he grew sales several-fold, substantially raised profit margins and completed several corporate acquisitions and licensing transactions. He was also Director of Business Development for C.R. Bard Corporate, where he was responsible for growth strategies for Bard Access, Davol, Bard Urology, Bard Medical, and Bard Endoscopic Technologies. At Bard's Patient Care Division, Mr. Doyle headed up a 225-person organization that manufactures and markets disposable devices and equipment sold to hospitals, physician’s offices, and home/long-term care markets.

Mr. Doyle is an expert in strategic planning, market assessments and introductions, and market share expansion. He brings to the table not only professional functionality of the highest order, but also the perspective and wisdom of a successful chief executive of a major healthcare firm. Since he left Bard, he has been called upon to provide these and other services for more than 65 companies, including Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline, ConvaTec and many early smaller domestic and foreign companies.

Ms. Thome was an executive in charge of the Healthcare Practice for Opinion Research Corporation, a Director of Strategic Planning at Little Company of Mary Hospital, and Senior Director of Provider Development at MedCare HMO.

Under her own company, DT Research, Ms. Thome has provided cost-effective direct market research services by organizing incisive focus groups, physician feedback programs and expert market and product analysis. Ms. Thome's clients have included Behavioral Research, Inc, The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and Axxiom Healthcare Alliance.

The Walden Group already employs a close-to-operations and strategic perspective to its M&A and consulting work, with a particular emphasis on helping clients build fundamental value and grow organically or by fitted acquisition.
