New Corporate Development Director and Regional Practice Administrator Strengthen Ability to Integrate Ongoing Business Acquisitions
MINNEAPOLIS (April 13, 2016) — United Skin Specialists LLC (“USS”), a fast-growing Midwestern dermatology-directed practice management group, announced today that it has expanded its leadership team to include industry veterans Keelan Diehl as Corporate Development Director and Eileen Kielblock as the Regional Practice Administrator.
“This fast growing and visionary company makes joining USS a very exciting team to be part of,” said Keelan Diehl. “I really look forward to working with our network of dermatologist-owners to streamline their operations and enhance patient care.”
Diehl brings nearly 10 years of experience in corporate development, private equity and investment management to USS. Previously, he was an associate at Tonka Bay Equity Partners, a Minneapolis based private equity firm, where he focused on mergers and acquisitions, portfolio company management, and growth strategies.
In his new role, Diehl will be responsible for working with practices and physicians on due diligence, financial valuation, legal documentation, and post-close integration as they join the USS network.
Eileen Kielblock has more than 10 years’ experience as a leader in healthcare management. Formerly, she was the clinical manager at both Allina Health and TRIA Orthopedic Center in Minneapolis.
“USS gives me the opportunity to work with a variety of people with the common goal of enhancing patient care,” said Kielblock. “Together, we’ll be able to enhance the use of dermatological technology and treatments in all of our clinics.”
Kielblock will directly supervise the Minneapolis-based clinic employees, including the clinics of Zel Skin & Laser Specialists, Skin Specialists, and Southwest Dermatology.
“These are two key additions to the management team. It’s a really exciting time for USS. Keelan and Eileen bring the experience and eagerness that we’re looking for,” said Jim Feinstein, president of USS. “With their talents we’ll continue to move quickly with new acquisitions and practice growth opportunities over the next several years.”
