APS believes that the best way to help patients is to help the people who care for them. From creating an entirely new generation of lifelong education online to defending clinicians in the courtroom when necessary, they’re tackling both sides of the risk equation and improving patient safety every day. APS is funded by Ascension Health Ventures.


Our first search with Advanced Practice Strategies (APS) was to find their Chief Executive Officer as the company pivoted and they looked for someone to lead them through their next period of growth. After placing Russ Richmond in this role, we’ve continued working alongside him to build out APS’s leadership team including the placement of their Chief Technology Officer, Chief Medical Officer, Vice President of Sales and Account Management, and Vice President of Marketing. Additionally, Advance Practice Strategies is an Oxeon portfolio company.

“Oxeon brought three distinctive strengths to my job search. The Oxeon network, which is already quite good, is getting better at a dizzying pace. Their knowledge of healthcare was particularly important to me, in understanding how my strengths might match the potential opportunities. I also felt well-communicated to during the process, which was both reassuring and helped me to prepare for my discussions with the board and senior team.”

—Russ Richmond, Chief Executive Officer, Advanced Practice Strategies

“I chose to work with Oxeon because building a growth company can’t be done without a strategic partnership that extends reach and deepens expertise. Oxeon and its principles not only had the strongest referrals I’ve encountered in my career, but are so uniquely aligned with us as long term partners that the shareholder value proposition is obvious and compelling.”

—Dennis P. Ferrill, Former Chief Executive Officer, Advanced Practice Strategies

“I have had the pleasure of both being recruited by and being a client of Oxeon. While most recruiters are appropriately described as ‘head hunters’, Oxeon is truly a human resource consulting firm. I have found Trevor to be a thoughtful advisor to our leadership team and to me personally. I also have found each member of the Oxeon team to be savvy, professional, and efficient. I strongly recommend the firm as a partner in both people search and guidance.”
