Today, StartUp Health, its global army of Health Transformers and Vice President of the United States Joe Biden kicked off the 14th annual Cleveland Clinic Medical Innovation Summit sharing an urgent message with nearly 2,000 health leaders, CEOs, and entrepreneurs: the time is now to organize, break down silos, and adopt a “Health Transformer Mindset” to speed up progress in solving big health challenges like ending cancer, ensuring access to care, and improving the wellbeing of people worldwide. For the fourth consecutive year, StartUp Health’s Health Transformer Showcase kicked off the Medical Innovation Summit featuring 15 Health Transformers and a keynote from StartUp Health CEO and Co-founder, Steven Krein, where he shared a five-year update on their bold 25-year master plan. “In 2011, StartUp Health launched an ambitious movement to organize and support a global army of Health Transformers with the long-term goal of improving the health and wellbeing of everyone in the world,” said Steven. “Over the past five years, we’ve organized thousands of entrepreneurs, innovators and organizations committed to transforming health. In addition to rapidly growing this global force, StartUp Health and our partners are investing in and focusing on 10 Health Moonshots, each which will impact billions of people.” StartUp Health’s army of Health Transformers and network is organized around 10 Health Moonshot themes, all of which are connected and integral to one another. Additionally, StartUp Health will work to integrate the world’s numerous Moonshot initiatives: 1. Access to Care Moonshots: deliver quality care to everyone, regardless of location or income 2. Cost to Zero Moonshots: radically reduce the cost of care by a factor of a million 4. Cancer Moonshots: end cancer as we know it 6. Children's Health Moonshots: ensure every child has access to quality care, particularly in underserved areas 7. Nutrition Moonshots: ensure everyone has access to healthy food and water 8. Brain Health Moonshots: unlock the mysteries of the brain to improve health Following a dynamic Fireside Chat between Dr. Toby Cosgrove, CEO and President of Cleveland Clinic and Steven Krein about how to speed up progress and the pace of health innovation, Vice President Biden delivered an inspiring address calling on everyone to do their part in sharing research, data, and resources. “The Moonshot is all of us who understand the urgency and need to reimagine the cancer fight for the 21st century. It’s the spirit of discovery that defines this country. And it gives me every confidence that we are going to make enormous progress,” said Vice President Biden. “The Moonshot is fundamentally about two things,” continued Mr. Biden. “It’s about injecting the urgency of now into this fight. Not tomorrow, not in two hours, now! And it’s about changing the culture. Coming up with a new strategy for this fight. Not the strategy left over from 1971.” “We know now as we see everywhere that collaboration is the key to innovation,” he said to the audience of healthcare leaders. “The magic ingredient to solving the world’s biggest Health Moonshots is to organize the wisdom and energy of the world’s Health Transformers and bring them together as a united force sharing data and resources,” said Unity Stoakes, President and Co-founder of StartUp Health. “Every solution can make an impact, and as a collective army we can make 100 years of progress in 25.” The following entrepreneurs shared innovations and impact missions during the Health Transformer Showcase: The 2016 Medical Innovation Summit – “Innovating for Healthcare’s Transformation” – reflects the sense of urgency in an industry in the midst of historic change. The conference will go through Wednesday, October 26th, at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland and the adjacent Global Center for Health Innovation.

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A new analysis by Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY), the preeminent global people and organizational advisory firm, finds that CEOs are the oldest and longest-tenured individuals compared with other prominent C-suite roles. By contrast, the study found CMOs and CIOs are the youngest and shortest-tenured. The Korn Ferry Institute study of the top 1,000 U.S. companies by revenue was conducted in late 2016. It examines the age and tenure of individuals holding C-suite titles (CEO, CFO, CHRO, CMO, CIO), and is also broken down by industry - consumer, energy, financial services, industrials, life sciences, professional services, and technology. When analyzed in the aggregate, the average age for a C-suite member is 54 and the average tenure is 5.3 years. However, the numbers vary depending on title and industry. The average age for a CEO across industries is 58, with the oldest average CEO age 60 in financial services and the youngest 55 in the technology sector. In terms of tenure, the average CEO tenure is 8 years. Those in financial services have the longest tenure, 9.7 years, and those in energy have the shortest tenure, 6.1 years. “It makes sense that for large, complex companies, the executive who holds the highest leadership position would have more and diverse experiences, which would translate to more years in the workforce,” said Tierney Remick, vice chairman, Korn Ferry Board and CEO Services. “Immediately following the 2008 Great Recession we saw many boards asking their CEOs to continue to lead and navigate through an unprecedented period of dynamic change and ultimately, recovery.” The average CFO age at 53 represents the middle of the pack for C-suite members. There isn’t much variance in the age of CFOs among industries, with an average age of 54 for financial services and life sciences, and an average age of 53 for the other industries (consumer, energy, industrials, professional services and technology). As for tenure, behind the CEO, the CFO is the longest-tenured C-suite member at an average of 5.1 years, with the longest-tenured CFOs in the life sciences industry at an average of 6 years, and the shortest-tenured CFOs in the technology and industrial sectors at an average of 4.9 years. “In 2016 we saw internal promotions of CFOs vs. external hires jump to 58 percent, up from just 40 percent the previous year. We’re also finding that a contributing factor to the longer tenure of CFOs are boards, which are taking the time to create robust succession management processes to ensure chosen candidates are a good fit, and therefore stay longer,” said Bryan Proctor, senior client partner, Korn Ferry CFO Practice. Behind the CEO, the CHRO is the oldest C-suite member at an average age of 55. Life sciences and energy tie for the oldest average CHRO at 56, and professional services has the youngest average CHRO at 54. The average tenure for a CHRO across industries is 5.0 years. Energy has the longest-tenured CHRO average at 5.3 years and industrial has the youngest-tenured CHRO at 4.6 years. “CHROs are in the business of relationship building, and that takes time,” said Joseph McCabe, vice chair, Korn Ferry HR Global Center of Expertise. “Once those relationships are built, the CHRO’s value to the organization is even greater and hence the longer tenure.” The average CMO age is 52, with CMOs in the life sciences and professional services sectors the oldest average age at 54. The youngest average age of CMOs is 50 in the consumer sector. The average tenure of a CMO is the lowest of all C-suite titles, at an average of 4.1 years. The longest average CMO tenure is in the financial services industry at 5.1 years, and life sciences CMOs stay on average a full two years less at only 3.1 years. The average CMO in the consumer industry stays 3.6 years. “Today’s customer-centric CMO role is exceptionally complex and requires the right balance of left as well as right brain skills, and very importantly, a differentiated set of leadership competencies,” said Caren Fleit, senior client partner and leader of Korn Ferry’s Marketing Center of Expertise. “CMOs with this unique profile are in high demand and are often recruited to lead the next transformation. Also, in some cases, short tenure can be attributed to the organization not being well aligned behind the change that the CMO is tasked with leading.” The CIO is on average the youngest in the C-suite at age 51, with the youngest average CIO age in the consumer industry at 47, and the oldest in industrials at 54. The average tenure for the CIO is 4.3 years, with CIOs in the consumer, energy, and professional services sectors tying for the longest-average tenure at 4.5 years. The shortest-tenured CIO is in the industrial sector at an average of 4.0 years. “The pace of change is rapid and the breadth of increasing responsibilities continues to reconfirm the importance of the CIO role,” said Craig Stephenson, managing director of the North America CIO Practice. “CIOs continuously rise to the challenge and it’s common for this executive profile to leave after a few years, not because of dissatisfaction, but because the challenge they set out to accomplish is achieved and other, perhaps larger, opportunities await.” Korn Ferry is the preeminent global people and organizational advisory firm.
