Director of Mergers and Acquisitions

This opportunity lies within a rapidly expanding, multi-site provider/healthcare group, backed by Private Equity and positioned for exceptional growth. The organization is actively forming an M&A team to drive its inorganic growth initiatives. As a highly acquisitive sponsor with a focus on substantial M&A volume, this role will report directly to the Chief Growth Officer.

Geography: This is a northeast based company but candidates can be located anywhere on the eastern half of the country and be permanent remote.


  • Provide robust support to the Corporate M&A function, focusing on:
    • Driving overall business development activities in collaboration with the executive team.
    • Implementing an acquisition strategy plan and roadmap aligned with long-term business strategies and capabilities.
  • Establish an objective, consistent, and disciplined approach for evaluating potential acquisitions and business combinations.
  • Analyze addressable markets, collaborating with business unit leaders and functional specialists to develop and update strategies.
  • Actively identify and source acquisition targets, cultivating relationships with brokers and building a deal pipeline in line with the Company’s strategic objectives.
  • Present the company’s story to the marketplace, establishing rapport and credibility with business owners.
  • Develop a business case and/or valuation model for each potential transaction.
  • Identify and quantify synergy opportunities with potential acquisitions, creating action plans for post-close synergies.
  • Lead M&A transactions through cross-functional due diligence, leveraging integration planning inputs for successful integration.
  • Gather critical information regarding risks and opportunities for ongoing M&A activities, translating insights into well-reasoned valuations and structural impacts.
  • Regularly interact with third-party advisors (legal, financial, tax, consultants).
  • Assist in structuring and negotiating deals, collaborating with the CEO to gain Board approval.
  • Lead and coordinate post-acquisition integration initiatives to ensure a successful “first 90-days” post-close.


  • Bachelor’s degree required; MBA preferred.
  • 5-7+ years of results-oriented work experience in a similar role, including corporate development, private equity, and investment banking.
  • Ability to model and synthesize complex financial analysis, operational, and KPI data into concise presentations and decision frameworks regularly.
  • Experience leading M&A reviews and executions, analyzing business proposals, conducting due diligence, and structuring transactions.
  • Background in corporate development, strategy, or business development functions.
  • Strong analytical skills, with an extreme attention to detail, accuracy, and accountability, balanced with sound business judgment.
  • Proven experience in financial modeling, valuation, and presenting to an investment committee.
  • Strong Board presentation skills, including the development of PowerPoint presentations.
  • Excellent professional written/verbal communication and interpersonal skills.
