Focus Search Partners Team

Chris Cahill

Managing Director

Based in Nashville, Chris serves Focus Search clients nationally. Chris has recruited Board members, executives and senior leaders for private equity-backed and publicly traded companies in the healthcare services and provider sectors.

Chris is actively engaged in recruiting and project management for high-profile clients as well as new client development. Chris’ direct experience with Vaco’s founders and the local market leadership has been instrumental as Focus Search expands and integrates their retained search platform across the Vaco platform.

Previously with Focus Search’s parent company, Vaco, Chris worked directly with Vaco’s founder and CEO, in identifying and recruiting leadership to four de novo offices and high-performing producers across the USA.

Since launching in 2002, Vaco has grown to 31 offices with more than 350 recruiters. Vaco has been named, eight times, to the Inc. 500 / 5,000 fastest growing companies list. Chris has played an integral role in Vaco’s exceptional growth.

With a bachelor’s degree in business management, Chris graduated cum laude from Gettysburg College and was a four-year starter and served as the captain of the Gettysburg College nationally ranked lacrosse team.

We have worked with thousands of clients across a diverse set of industries.
