Rabin Martin, a global health strategy firm working at the intersection of private sector capabilities and unmet public health needs, has introduced new roles on its Leadership Team to support the company’s growth. Maria Schneider and Isabelle Lindenmayer will take on new responsibilities as Portfolio Leaders, and Terri Jackson will become the firm’s Culture and Engagement Leader. All three will report to Rabin Martin’s President, Rebecca Hoppy.
“Global health is currently undergoing a major transition, with new treatments, new technologies and new actors coming onto the scene each day. We realized it was critical for us to restructure our executive team to help our clients maintain their leadership positions for the long run,” said Jeffrey L. Sturchio, Rabin Martin CEO.
In their new roles, Maria Schneider and Isabelle Lindenmayer will help guide the overall growth of the organization, with an emphasis on client service and firm growth. “Maria and Isabelle together bring a wealth of experience and a passionate commitment to helping our clients lead in global health. Their new roles offer exciting opportunities to advance our mission of improving the lives of the underserved,” said Hoppy.
As the new Culture and Engagement Leader, Terri Jackson will focus on strengthening the firm’s organizational culture and diversity and inclusion efforts, as well as responsibilities around external engagement and growth. Added Hoppy, “With this new position, we plan to build upon Rabin Martin’s legacy as a mission-driven organization and codify learning and development as a critical component in driving our clients’ business. Terri was an obvious choice for this new function, since she embodies a rare balance between strategy, people and culture.”
Since joining Rabin Martin in 2011, Maria Schneider has helped the firm diversify its client base and expand high-profile initiatives, such as Merck for Mothers, a $500 million initiative to prevent maternal mortality and the Global Commission to End the Diagnostic Odyssey for Children with a Rare Disease—a unique partnership among Takeda, Microsoft and patient advocacy group Eurordis to help families of children with a rare disease reduce time to diagnosis. Before joining Rabin Martin, Maria was Senior Vice President in Edelman’s Corporate Social Responsibility practice. Prior to that, she helped refocus the mission of the Pfizer Foundation.
Over the past five years, Isabelle Lindenmayer has helped Rabin Martin expand its offerings in the areas of global access, policy and government affairs work as well significantly grow its oncology portfolio. During her tenure, the firm saw an uptick in satisfaction among top clients, according to an independent survey, following her leadership in client service improvement efforts. Before joining Rabin Martin, Isabelle drove strategy development for the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), including the establishment of the organization’s first country program in Haiti, where she served as Country Director. Isabelle also carries a deep background in reproductive health through her work at the International Planned Parenthood Foundation (IPPF) where she supported strategy development and implementation for IPPF affiliates with a specific focus on HIV as well as women’s cancers.
In her eight years with Rabin Martin, Terri Jackson has pioneered several learning initiatives while also serving as a go-to mentor for staff at all levels and overseeing an array of domestic portfolios, with expertise in HIV prevention and care, sexual and reproductive health, criminal justice, substance abuse and mental health, and youth development. Prior to joining Rabin Martin, Terri served as Vice President of Access to Care for Housing Works, Managing Director of Program Services and Evaluation at Gay Men’s Health Crisis, Inc. and Director of Program Development for Planned Parenthood’s Clinical Services Division.
