Don Richard


Director - Talent Acquisition, Healthcare

Don Richard was born in Massachusetts, but his parents wanted to raise their family in Maine and moved here when he was two years old.  Don could not wait to set out on his own to see the rest of the country and did so soon after graduating high school. He traveled for a number of years, and settled in Maryland and Oregon, often working in outside sales. In time he realized he missed Maine. His other revelation was how much he really wanted a family of his own. Don and Karrie, an English teacher, and they have two young children.

Prior to recruiting, Don was the Assistant Coordinator of Development for Maine Medical Center. He became involved in hospital and non-profit development and especially in the capital campaign to build the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital in Portland, Maine. A master at multi-tasking, he organized 37 fundraising events a year, for more than three years.  Among the fundraisers were celebrity golf tournaments and the local portion of the Children’s Miracle Network Telethon.

Don began his Recruiting career in 1995 and started specializing in the Healthcare Recruiting industry in 1997.  Don has experience placing just about every type of professional within the Healthcare Industry, as well as some technical recruiting experience.

He is a true ‘New Englander,’ and most often when he is out of the office, there is a good chance of catching Don sporting a blue base ball cap with a pair of red sox on it.  A true and loyal fan of the Red Sox baseball team since he was seven years, Don also enjoys golf, camping, and most of all spending time with his young family.
