Flaster Greenberg has created a chief information officer position and hired a longtime information systems executive based in New Jersey to serve in the role.
In a Wednesday announcement, the firm said that Gene Goroschko, previously a vice president for information technology at a private equity firm that partners with veterinary practices, has joined the firm as its first CIO, and will be responsible for strategic IT planning and security and managing the firm's existing IT team.
"We are very excited to have Gene join our firm, and his hiring comes after a long and exhaustive process aimed at finding the right candidate for this new role," Jordan LaVine, co-managing shareholder at Flaster Greenberg, said in a statement.
He added, "We have made significant improvements to our IT infrastructure in recent years and Gene will help direct and oversee our continued commitment to having state-of the art technology, which helps us serve our clients in the most efficient manner possible. Gene's proven track record as a successful IT executive will prove to be a tremendous asset to the firm."
Goroschko joins the firm after three years with private equity firm Veterinary Practice Partners, according to his online resume, which also indicates that he headed up the effort to migrate the company to the cloud, among other projects. Prior to Veterinary Practice Partners, he was a senior vice president for information systems at Pennsylvania health care consulting group PE GI Solutions, where he worked for 14 years.
