Testimony from Jimmy Hatcher for Jay Hoffman

June 23, 2016

In the time Jay worked for me at Emory Healthcare, he was responsible as CFO for the financial affairs of a health system that Emory contract managed. He was able to get for the organization additional cash flow financing, participated in the defeasance of a multi-million dollar bond financing saving the organization more than $3 million per year and did all possible to keep the organization financially viable until a buyer was identified for this facility.

Creative thinking and out of the box thinking were critical elements of this endeavor. Jay worked in a very stressful environment where he had to manage many different parties which all had varying priorities. I never saw Jay become emotional under the stress. He has the great ability to remain very calm and focused. His work also included significant board level communication and exposure. I strongly recommend Jay and JH Enterprises to assist in financial leadership issues from turnaround and transition management through merger and acquisition.
