Michael J. Mandl

Executive Vice President, Piedmont Healthcare

Michael J. Mandl joined Piedmont Healthcare in March 2018 as the system’s executive vice president. In this role, he is the number two executive. Mandl is responsible for executing the strategic agenda for Piedmont and overseeing a broad range of system functions, including new business development, finance, strategy and planning, supply chain, real estate, government & community affairs, and philanthropy.

Mandl led the restructuring of Piedmont’s urgent care partnership with Four Winds Health/WellStreet to create a new joint venture, Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet, with Piedmont holding both 50 percent equity and governance rights. Simultaneously, this new joint venture acquired the Summit Urgent Care network, creating the largest urgent care network, in the number of patient visits, in the state of Georgia.

He also led the development of a new partnership with OrthoAtlanta, which includes a professional services agreement (PSA), partial ownership in two surgery centers, and full ownership of MRI and physical therapy services, as well as other strategically important features.

Before joining Piedmont, Mandl served as president and chief executive officer of Mandl & Co., an Atlanta-based business advisory firm. During his time at Mandl & Co., he focused on advancing the mission of universities and medical centers by providing executive counsel and unlocking asset equity to increase investable resources.

Prior to co-founding Mandl & Co., Mandl served as the executive vice president and enterprise chief business officer for Emory University, including Emory Healthcare. In this role, he oversaw major functions, including finance/investments, information technology, human resources, real estate, campus planning, audit, and business process improvement. Mandl led the executive team charged with re-positioning Emory Healthcare and served as its CEO during an interim period from March 2015 to September 2015. Mandl served as chairman of several boards during his time at Emory, including Emory Healthcare, Emory Innovations, Inc., EmTech, and the captive insurance company, Clifton Casualty. Accomplishments at Emory include leading a $540 million intellectual property monetization, leading the campus master plan and real estate development, which resulted in the addition of more than 25 facilities over 13 years, leading the development of a three-year strategic financial plan for Emory Healthcare, and championing an award-winning leadership development program.

Earlier in his career, Mandl served in executive roles at Duke University, the University of Pennsylvania, Glaxo Pharmaceuticals and KPMG.

In addition to his professional endeavors, Mandl has used his leadership skills and business acumen to serve in governance roles on the board of directors for several organizations, including the Midtown Alliance, YMCA of Metro Atlanta, Fernbank Museum of Natural History, Georgia State Properties Commission (which required an appointment from the governor) and ZOE International.

Mandl earned a master’s degree in liberal studies from Duke University and a bachelor’s degree with distinction from George Washington University.

He and his wife Nancy have been married for 35 years. They split their time between their home in Midtown Atlanta and their farm in North Carolina. They are the parents of a son and a daughter, who both reside in New York City.
