July 31, 2020

David Hecht has been promoted to Chief Strategy Officer, effective August 1, 2020. David will focus on developing, communicating, executing and sustaining RHA Health Services’ strategic growth initiatives.

“RHA will always prioritize delivering person-centered, quality care to the individuals we serve,” said Jeanne Duncan, Chief Executive Officer. “Finding ways the company can grow and evolve is an important part of meeting that commitment. We look forward to David’s leadership in helping us execute this plan.”

David joined RHA Health Services in 2017 as Senior Vice President of Finance. Since then, David has played a vital role in leading RHA’s corporate finance division and acquisitions activity.

David has been a great cultural addition to RHA as well, bringing an ideal balance of business acumen, heart and humor. He has an autistic brother who receives services in another state, so he personally understands the importance of the services organizations such as RHA provide. David has also been an advocate for RHA employees, understanding that our quality is defined by our essential front-line workers.

“I look forward to working alongside my dedicated colleagues as we look to continue to grow RHA into one of the industry’s leading platforms for providing exceptional services to those with intellectual and developmental disabilities and to people with mental health and substance use challenges,” said Hecht.

Before joining RHA, David held various executive roles for Formation Capital, HealthPRO Management Services, JER Partners and Oliver Wyman. David earned his undergraduate degree from Princeton University and his Masters of Business Administration from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
