Who Stole My Playbook, Leading through the Pandemic

Who Stole My Playbook, Leading through the Pandemic

Has there really been a playbook for leading through adversity?  If so, traditional approaches for recognizing and addressing key challenges were most certainly shattered in 2020.

We recently sat down with a highly regarded and experienced group of CEO’s to discuss some of these leadership challenges and how they are addressing them.  The result is a 3-module podcast which casts a light on Economic, Social and Governance issues experienced by associations who represent some of our major industries and professions.

Please join us for the first module which speaks to abrupt Economic loss as a result of the Pandemic and lessons learned.  The Social and Governance modules will be released over the next couple of weeks.

Matt J. Granato, LL.M, MBA

Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) has selected Matt J. Granato as their next President and CEO. Launched in 1991 by patients and a caregiver, the group’s goal is to build a community of support, as well as to foster education and support research into pulmonary hypertension (PH). Granato will serve as the third person in the role of President and CEO for the PHA.

Most recently Granato served as the CEO of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM), which focuses on helping people with high-risk pregnancies. There, he worked to meet the needs of both healthcare providers and their patients.

Granato succeeds Brad A. Wong as CEO of PHA, whose term began in 2016 and expires at year’s end. Under Wong’s direction, the PHA continued to promote patient care and research, raise awareness of the disease, and amplify the voice of people with PH.
