View from the C-Suite: A Conversation with Don Stanziano, Chief Marketing Officer, Geisinger
// By Sheryl S. Jackson //
After 16 years at Scripps Health in San Diego, California, with eight of those years as vice president of marketing and communications, the move to Geisinger in Pennsylvania was a big change — geographically, organizationally, and lifestyle-wise.
“I have not been ‘new’ to an organization in a very long time, so it has been a big change, but when an organization like Geisinger taps your shoulder and asks if you will interview for the chief marketing position, it is an easy decision to say yes,” says Don Stanziano, chief marketing officer at Geisinger since January 2018.
View from the C-Suite is a new feature in Strategic Health Care Marketing, and we’re proud to launch the series with Sheryl Jackson’s conversation with Don Stanziano. Here, we’ll see Geisinger through Stanziano’s eyes and find out what motivated him to move across the country to join the health system that became famous for offering refunds to patients who are not satisfied — and what he hopes to accomplish in the coming years.
