Encompass Hospice C-Suite takes shape with Carlisle as new CFO
Encompass Health Corp. (NYSE: EHC) will appoint Crissy B. Carlisle, the company’s head of investor relations, as the new CFO of its home care and hospice operations. Carlisle will move to CFO after Encompass identifies the successor to his current role.
Encompass Home Health and Hospice is changing. The company is in the midst of a strategic repositioning of this segment of its business, including a possible spin-off or sale. The company plans to brief investors on the repositioning at the end of July. So far, the home and palliative care provider has given no indication of their final decision on repositioning.
Last week, Encompass announced that Barbara Jacobsmeyer will take the helm as CEO of the home care and hospice segment. Former CEO April Anthony stepped down on June 18 as part of a scheduled departure.
“Crissy’s financial expertise and familiarity with our business operations and strategy will be invaluable as we continue to fulfill our mission of providing high quality, cost effective home health care and palliative care services to our patients.” , Jacobsmeyer said.
Carlisle arrived at Encompass in 2005 as Director of Securities and Exchange Commission reports and was quickly promoted to Vice President of Financial Reports. In 2015, she became director of investor relations for the company. Previously, she worked as a Director at FTI Consulting and as Head of Audit Practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The Encompass hospice segment earned $ 50.6 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of 5.4% from the $ 48 million in the previous year quarter. The company operates 82 hospices and 241 home care centers in 39 states of the United States and Puerto Rico.
“Crissy is an exceptionally talented leader who I have worked side by side with since becoming CEO,” said Mark J. Tarr, President and CEO of Encompass Health. “Crissy’s more than 25 years of experience in financial consulting and accounting, combined with her in-depth understanding of the business and the industry, make her ideal for taking on the role of CFO. “
