Finn Partners has named Fern Lazar global practice leader of its health unit.

She succeeds Kristie Kuhl, who will take over Zeno Group’s health and wellness practice at the end of March.

Lazar joined Finn Partners after it acquired her shop, Lazar Partners, in 2019.

She will now head the more than 200 member health practice, while continuing to lead Lazar/Finn.

Gil Bashe, chairman of Finn Partners’ health operation, said Lazar “consistently proves that collaboration and can-do spirit advance bold ideas.”

Kuhl succeeded Bashe as health chief in July 2021.

Finn Partners ranked No. 4 in O’Dwyer’s healthcare rankings with fees of $34.1M in 2020.

Zeno took the No. 13 spot with $10.8M in income.
