Summit BHC, a leading national provider of behavioral health and addiction treatment services headquartered in Franklin, has promoted Daniel Krasner and Kim Brady to key leadership positions within the company and has announced two new additions to the management team.

“Hiring and promoting the right talent is a critical element of Summit's continued growth and success,” said Brent Turner, CEO of Summit BHC. “These leaders have consistently demonstrated a deep commitment to the communities we serve, and their expertise is essential to our organization. We are proud of the leadership team we’ve assembled and look forward to their continued contributions to improve the lives we touch."

Krasner has been named chief marketing officer for Summit after previously serving as the executive vice president of Business Development. During his tenure, Krasner spearheaded several successful business development initiatives, including the growth of the alumni and veteran services departments.

In his new role as CMO, Krasner will lead and implement Summit's overall marketing strategy, focusing on continuing the company's growth trajectory and increasing its visibility in the marketplace.

Kim Brady has been named chief human resources officer for Summit. In her previous role as senior vice president of Human Resources, Brady expanded the Human Resources department to support the company's rapid growth. Brady led the selection and recent implementation of a new human resource management and payroll system, which has streamlined processes and improved employee satisfaction.

Brady will continue to oversee the growth and development of the Human Resources department, ensuring that Summit attracts and retains top talent.

Summit has also recruited John Flanagan and Jeanne Sands to the leadership team.

Flanagan, vice president of Development, joined Summit in December 2022. He brings leadership in strategy, planning and growth guidance for substance-use disorder initiatives. He has more than 30 years of experience developing and expanding behavioral health systems and networks and opening new inpatient facilities and outpatient programs with a national footprint. Above all, Flanagan recognizes Summit’s commitment to delivering quality, evidence-based treatment and care to its communities.

Sands joined Summit in December 2022 as the chief information officer. She has developed leading health care technology solutions and assembled high-performing teams for over 20 years. Most recently, Sands served a large health system delivering key digital, EHR, imaging and system strategies while improving the patient and clinician experience. 

She was also crucial in responding to the technology challenges raised by COVID in health care settings. She leads by example, anticipating future needs, focusing on the future, and governing the present.
