"The Foundation Board is delighted and grateful that Babs has agreed to lead the Foundation. Babs brings to this position a wealth of professional experience, dedication to the mission of Livingston HealthCare, and strong ties to the local community,” said Ruth Weissman, Chair of the Livingston HealthCare Foundation Board. “We look forward to her contributions to the Foundation's efforts to support excellence in patient-centered healthcare and wellness programs for everyone in our community."
Babs carries more than 20 years of management experience working in the financial markets in New York City, primarily in sales and business development, a majority of which have been devoted to start-up initiatives and new products. With an MBA from Cornell University, Babs has worked with five of the top investment banks. She served as Head of Business Development for The Receivables Exchange, a Bain Capital start-up venture. In 2015, Babs co-founded Incunable Productions, a book-adaptation screen development company.
“It is a distinct privilege in my career to work in Livingston HealthCare’s state-of-the-art medical facility,” said Brandfass. “It is a genuine honor to work among so many outstanding professionals. They set the bar every day, and I will endeavor to meet those challenges on behalf of the Foundation and the Park County community.”
