Meet our CDO: Marshall Hawks

This is part of our series on the team behind MediFind, which we lovingly refer to as “Meet the MFers.”

Marshall Hawks is a member of the founding team at MediFind, serving as our Chief Data Officer

So, what’s your story?

I’ve spent the last 20 years in KOL identification for the pharmaceutical industry, helping them identify experts for speaking engagements and clinical research. I actually started out in the mailroom at COMSORT (which became MediFind) and eventually found my way to analytics as a way to utilize my background in I/O psychology. Once I saw the opportunity to join a small start-up and apply my skills to helping patients directly, I bid farewell to Big Pharma and jumped at the opportunity.

Why MediFind?

I’m at MediFind because it allows me to constantly innovate and offers me a chance to make a real difference for patients and their quality of life. Every day is exciting being part of a small company making a big difference.

What would you say… you do here?

My world is the data. Making sure we have the highest quality and up to date information in this constantly changing healthcare landscape. Additionally I make sure we are thinking about, analyzing and delivering our data in the most effective ways to help patients across all chapters of their healthcare journey. 

Do you have a guiding philosophy?

Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things. Also laugh every day.

Tell us something surprising about you

I am an ordained minister and a Scottish laird. Both titles were bestowed upon me during a wild week in 2004.

What do you do to unwind?

I love cooking, especially dishes and ingredients I’ve never tried.  I love the outdoors, whether it’s camping, hiking, canoeing or just cocktails on the patio.
