Executive recruitment firm Slone Partners has named Leslie Loveless to the position of Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. She succeeds Adam Slone, who founded the firm in 2000.

“Slone Partners has built a tradition of quality and service excellence that is the hallmark of our business. It’s an honor to lead this organization and to carry on our mission to deliver the best leaders to build amazing organizations,” Leslie said.

Leslie joined Slone Partners in 2007 and was promoted to Chief Operating Officer in 2014. She brings more than 17 years of healthcare sales, training, and recruiting experience to the firm.

Prior to joining Slone Partners, Leslie served as the Director of Training and Development for AmeriPath. She received a Bachelor of Arts and graduated cum laude from Indiana State University and earned a Master of Arts in English from Butler University.

Adam will remain engaged with Slone Partners, with a specific focus in strategy, finance, M&A advisement and business development in Boston and California. He will also be dedicating more time to the tennis foundation he founded, Life Serve Youth Foundation, which is a sleep away tennis camp for financially disadvantaged kids from Boston and New York.

“With her strategic skillset and capacity to deliver the best the market can offer to Slone Partners’ clients, I am confident that Leslie will build on the company’s promise to consistently deliver exceptional service while moving the team and the organization forward,” Adam said.
