Debora Accomando, MSW
CEO and co-founder of Nutmeg Healthcare Recruiters.
Debora began her professional career in the trenches as a hands-on, clinical social worker in the psychiatric emergency department at New York Presbyterian Hospital, and later focused her clinical career in the treatment of anxiety. Perhaps not suprisingly, it was this clinical experience that later proved instrumental in establishing her successful track record of carefully and comfortably sheparding clinical and administrative leaders through the difficult decision making process inherent in a career transition.
Debora transitioned from the clinical world to the business world in 2000, launching her search career in the fast-paced environment of New York City with The Execu|Search Group, where she was trained and mentored in the recruitment process within healthcare. Her primary focus was providing healthcare recruitment services for leading managed care and insurance companies during the years where nurses began playing a critical role in healthcare insurance decisions.
After 9/11, Debora left NYC and joined up with Merck leading pharmaceuitical sales in Farifield County, CT. She later returned to The Execu|Search Group in 2004, spearheading the successful expansion of its healthcare division in a new branch office in Westchester County, NY, focusing on servicing clients north of New York City and in Connecticut.
In 2007, Debora launched Nutmeg Healthcare Recruiters with the support of a precious handful of dedicated clients. Staying true to her values of excellence and integrity, she has grown her consultant team to include only highly educated, professional consultants.
Debora earned her MS in Social Work from Columbia University in 1996 and her BA in Psychology from Binghamton University in 1994. She lives in Connecticut with her husband and their family.
