June 5, 2020

Please give a warm welcome to Shaun Roark, who joined RHA in May in a newly created position as Vice President of Business Development.

“RHA continues to pursue its mission to be a best-in-class provider of services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and to those with mental health and substance use issues,” says David Hecht, Senior Vice President of Financial Services. “RHA wants to find other like-minded companies to potentially acquire. Shaun brings a wealth of knowledge to help lead this important initiative.”

Shaun joins RHA after over a decade with The Mentor Network, as a Senior Executive Director in their M&A Department. During that time, Shaun led over 25 transactions representing approximately $300 million in revenue. Prior to that he worked in public accounting for approximately eight years; most recently as a Manager at KPMG, LLP in their Deal Advisory Group. Shaun holds both a Master of Business Administration and Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Bentley University in Waltham, MA. Additionally, Shaun is a licensed CPA in the State of Massachusetts.

“I’m excited to be a part of this vibrant and experienced leadership team. I look forward to contributing my array of experience to take this well-recognized organization to the next level, while preserving the organizational culture,” says Shaun.

David and Shaun are working together to implement a Business Development framework to serve as the foundation to achieve the Company’s long-term strategic initiatives.

On a personal level, Shaun says he has followed in his parents’ footsteps. “My father was in accounting, and my mother served as a nurse for over 40 years,” says Shaun. “Joining RHA is both enriching and rewarding to me, as I hope to do my part to help positively impact and improve people’s lives.”

Shaun grew up in the Boston, MA area, and is an avid sports fan. He will split his time between Boston, Atlanta and North Carolina.
