Transplant Leadership Institute Announces Its Growth and Expansion of Team Members and Services

Kansas City-based search firm Transplant Leadership Institute LLC (“TLI”) announces the opening of their East Coast office in the New York City tri-state area.  TLI is the nation’s leading search firm in the area of organ transplant and organ donation recruitment.  Since 2011, TLI has been committed to serving the needs of the transplant community and is well known for delivering exceptional talent with outstanding professionalism and the highest level of ethics.

The current Covid-19 pandemic has changed our lives in many ways that most people weren’t prepared for, but most importantly, it has had a huge impact on jobs and the economy.  It is not surprising that the demand for recruitment and placement services during these challenging times is at an all-time high and TLI’s experience is no exception.  In fact, the search firm has experienced explosive growth in new clients this past year which has necessitated an expansion into a new geographic location.

Along with the new office in the New York City area, TLI has expanded its staff in that location which will allow the firm to continue to offer clients and candidates exceptional personalized service.  New team members are: Dr. Waheed Tajik, who will lead the firm’s physician search practice. Dr. Tajik is an internal medicine physician who also has a transplant management background; and Mr. Wei Cheng, who will manage the research team. Mr. Cheng has many years of experience in information technology and data analytics as well as experience in the organ donation field. 

“We are excited to announce this new expansion of our search firm and to welcome all of our new staff to our team.” Says Lisa Norris, Managing Principal.  “Our team is stronger than ever and our new team members bring a deep level of expertise that will enhance our ability to grow our search practice. We are thrilled to begin this new chapter in our firm’s history!”
