Recruiting exceptional leaders for mission-driven organizations.



Philip Jaeger


Since joining Isaacson, Miller in 2003, Philip "Flip" Jaeger has helped build our firm's academic healthcare practice and currently serves as a member of our Executive Committee. In addition to academic healthcare, many of his searches are focused on the biological sciences, professional schools in higher education, and professional membership organizations. Drawing on his prior human resources management consulting experience, Flip enjoys aiding enterprise growth through consecutive, strategic recruits across an entire organization. Clients value his intense, personalized service and engagement throughout the search process. His expertise in academic healthcare and the life sciences and his understanding of the nuances and interconnection between the multiple missions in biological research, clinical care, and education allow him to adeptly support clients. Outside of the office, Flip is on the board of the Greater Chesapeake and Potomac Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. He has spoken on a number of healthcare leadership and executive search panels.
