MHS Announces CEO Transition

Multi-Health Systems, Inc. (MHS) today announced that Hazel Wheldon will step down as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and become a member of the MHS Advisory Board effective December 31, 2023.

Wheldon took on the role of CEO in 2010 after spending seven years with the business. In her time as CEO, Wheldon evolved MHS’ research and development capabilities, redeveloped core intellectual property, and brought new products into the world of MHS. Hazel Wheldon led MHS through strong growth and expansion throughout her tenure, adding new products and markets through organic product development and strategic acquisitions.

Wheldon is filled with pride and gratitude for her journey with MHS. She shares, “Over the past 20 years, MHS has been more than just a company to me. We’ve achieved incredible milestones together, and I am immensely grateful for the unwavering support of our dedicated team and the trust our clients have placed in us.”

“The future holds boundless opportunities for MHS, and while my role as CEO may be transitioning, my excitement for what lies ahead is stronger than ever. I look forward to continuing to contribute to MHS as a member of the Advisory Board, and I’m confident that our journey together is far from over,” says Wheldon.

Dr. Steven Stein, Rodeen Stein, and MHS sincerely thank Ms. Wheldon for her contributions to the organization and wish her all the best in her retirement. Dr. Stein adds, “We sincerely thank Hazel for her tremendous contribution to the success and growth of MHS, even through challenging times. She has laid the foundation for continuing strong growth and contributions to our mission. We are grateful that she will continue to serve MHS on our Advisory Board.”

Effective January 1, 2024, John Clarke, Chief Revenue Officer, joins as MHS’ new CEO. Starting with MHS in 2020, Clarke has brought a wealth of experience in sales, marketing, and digital transformation, significantly impacting MHS’ growth and success.

Clarke’s professional journey includes work in marketing, advertising, and sales. His career highlights feature notable roles at industry giants such as Google and AutoTrader, where he played a pivotal role in transforming traditional paper-based operations to fully digital models, reflecting the evolving digital economy. His experience in the Software as a Service (SaaS) sector has been invaluable as MHS undergoes its own digital transformation.

I envision a future where MHS continues to be a beacon of innovation, empowering individuals and organizations with cutting-edge psychological assessments and solutions that drive positive change.”

Clarke shares, “I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Hazel, who has been an inspirational leader and visionary. Her dedication and hard work have paved the way for MHS’ success, and I’m committed to building upon her legacy. With a dynamic team and an unwavering commitment to excellence, I am excited to continue to steer MHS towards a bright and promising future.”
