What Our Clients Say

  • “I have known Sue Schade for 22 years having worked together at Mass General Brigham. When I became CIO at MedStar Health, she gently let me know that StarBridge Advisors could help with many different services. When our CTO announced his departure, I immediately reached out to Sue for interim candidates. Within hours, she presented resumes of qualified candidates. Even better, the person we chose as interim became our permanent hire after delivering for us for three months.”

    Scott T. MacLean – Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer | MedStar Health
  • “Working with StarBridge Advisors was the best investment I have made for my professional development! Sue Schade helped me in a crucial turning point in my career, in dealing with the struggles of my previous position where I often felt undervalued, burned out and stuck in an environment fraught with bureaucracy and politics. Working with Sue, I claimed ownership of my career trajectory, rediscovered my value and secured a new job with almost double the pay. Sue’s professionalism and expertise guided me to balance job interviews while maintaining top work performance and allowed me to execute a graceful exit to my prior job. I highly recommend working with Sue.”

  • “Gale Thompson is nothing short of a Godsend for me.  She provided more insight in the time we worked together than I could ever have imagined.  We laid down a foundational structure through a lot of discovery and now I get to walk that new road with renewed confidence, insight, and tools.  I am so thankful that you offered her services!”

  • “StarBridge Advisors was invaluable to our ERP system selection. They supported us with developing a TCO (total cost of ownership), preparing for executive presentations, documenting our functional and technical requirements, coordinating vendor demos and scoring, developing a short list of qualified vendors, and facilitating any and all vendor communication on our behalf. We made a unanimous selection and began our implementation with full system commitment and no barriers!”

  • “StarBridge Advisors filled an important leadership gap when we needed interim leadership to advance our IT strategy while searching for our next CIO. Sue Schade quickly established credibility among clinical and operating leaders. She proved to be a wonderful thought leader and partner and help us make great progress in a short period of time. Furthermore, the assistance in onboarding our new CIO allowed for a seamless transition.”

  • “StarBridge Advisors has been a strategic partner to PeaceHealth and me personally. They quickly place top interim healthcare IT talent into key leadership openings. The Advisors that have assumed leadership positions within PeaceHealth have turned challenges into success stories.”

    Will Weider – SVP/CIO | PeaceHealth
  • “I highly recommend and value David Muntz’s contributions to WMCHealth. David showed a great deal of skill ranging from system selection, risk mitigation, governance, infrastructure design, applications portfolio and contracting – he was the whole package. His guidance brought credibility to all our efforts, with all our stakeholders, including those in the C-Suite and the Board Room. His skill mix, interpersonal traits, and hard work ethic made him an invaluable member of our team. We plan to continue this relationship and look forward to his guidance throughout the implementation phase. In many ways, he was the reason I could sleep at nights as we navigated this highly important phase of our organization’s development. “
