In establishing L.T. Famulary Executive Search Consultants, Lucille Teresa Famulary brings to her new venture more than 20 years of combined experience in executive recruiting for the financial services industry and in health care management. After beginning her career in the Human Resources Department at Monmouth Medical Center — the Long Branch, N.J.-based affiliate of Barnabas Health — she worked for several executive search firms in New York City, where she gained extensive recruiting experience in the institutional trading, foreign exchange, financial futures and options markets before becoming vice president of executive recruitment for investment banking at Rand Thompson Consultants.
A decade later, Lucille returned to Monmouth Medical Center, where she held several posts, including community liaison/patient advocate in its Emergency Department and manager of patient satisfaction. In fact, her close ties with law enforcement took root while she was at Monmouth, where she became known to police officers who were involved in the transport of patients to Monmouth for emergency care.
She then was recruited by AcuteCare Health System (ACHS) — the parent company of Specialty Hospital of Central Jersey (SHCJ), a Lakewood, N.J.-based long term acute care hospital. After serving as director of business development for ACHS, she became director of patient satisfaction at SHCJ and then marketing manager for AHCS’ Beacon Health and Social Services, Oceanport, N.J.
During her early tenure in the executive search arena, Lucille became known for her ability to sense the “right fit” between a company and a candidate, taking into careful consideration the company’s culture, vision and values, and the candidate’s qualifications, potential and personality. In addition, her colorful nature and uncanny ability to build strong business relationships soon became her signature calling card — an attribute that proved beneficial upon her return to the health care sector. Not only did Lucille serve as the voice of patients and families in her patient satisfaction roles at both Monmouth Medical Center and then Specialty Hospital of Central Jersey, she also was responsible for establishing new partnerships with physicians and other health care providers during her earlier executive leadership role at AcuteCare Health System.
In early 2016, Lucille left her position at ACHS to fulfill her dream of helping people realize their own career goals.
“Throughout my career, I have always focused on opening the lines of communication and forging relationships across all levels of an organization,”she says. “And every step along the way, I have been able to gain invaluable insight on what factors are essential in finding the right employee for a growing or established company, or the right company for an accomplished professional looking for career advancement. I am dedicated to getting the job done.”
