NAPA Vice President of Strategic Initiatives Franc Galinanes, Featured Panelist at Ziegler and Duane Morris, LLP Private Equity Event

North American Partners in Anesthesia ’s (NAPA) Vice President of Strategic Initiatives, Franc Galinanes, recently served as a featured panelist at an educational networking event presented by Ziegler,   an investment bank, capital markets, wealth management and alternative investments firm and multi-practice international law firm Duane Morris, LLP . The program, entitled, “Strategic and Private Equity Investments in Professional Practice Management Companies,” featured a distinguished panel of investors, operators and M&A professionals discussing the current trends and issues in investing in professional practice management businesses. The panel addressed investment bankers, providing further insight into what types of businesses present attractive M&A targets, potential opportunities, unique regulatory and transaction structure issues and other important investment concerns. The event took place September 14, 2016 at Duane Morris’ Manhattan location.

“The difference between a financial aggregator and a clinician-led practice, like NAPA, can have a significant impact on how a newly acquired practice interacts with their patients and surgeons,” said Mr. Galinanes. “It is important that, when choosing a partner, practices understand the importance of selecting an entity that best aligns with their clinical and patient care philosophies.”

The panel was moderated by Andrew Colbert, Managing Director, Ziegler and Ari J. Markenson, Partner, Duane Morris LLP and included speakers from national practice management companies, financial sponsors and physician practices.

Part of the NAPA team since 2000, Mr. Galinanes is a lead on NAPA’s Mergers & Acquisitions team and is responsible for the management of the organization’s Healthcare Analysis Department, Clinical Services team, its Risk Management strategy and the operation of the Professional Liability Risk Management and Facilities divisions.
