Chanel Smith is a Partner at Jobplex, leading the Healthcare Practice. In this role, she works closely with her DHR International Healthcare Partner counterparts to complement their executive search services with a full suite of professional search services in healthcare.
Most recently, Chanel was a consultant in Healthcare Services and Academic Health at Korn Ferry International. In her role she successfully placed C-Suite executives, emerging leaders, leadership within academia, faculty members, physicians, physician-scientists and various niche academic health roles. She prides herself on tailoring each search to fit the needs of her client, knowing that not one size fits all, and her ability to provide her clients with a diverse candidate slate.
