Rankin McKenzie Partner, Todd Ackman, is enjoying working with the team at Personify.  Personify has an amazing story and we are so honored to be working with them.

Mike and Suzy Carfley fulfilled a lifelong dream of owning a business together when they purchased of a small, niche traditional search firm, originally founded in 1978, that was deeply entrenched in the IT and Telecommunications industry.  Within 24 hours, that dream would transform into a nightmare – as the attacks of September 11th rocked the nation. A country at war and an economy slipping into recession would nearly force the company into bankruptcy.

As if things weren’t hard enough for this small, boutique firm – its President and CEO, Mike Carfley, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer – a battle he would lose 18 months from diagnosis.

Amidst all the chaos, his son, Ryan Carfley, was asked to leave a promising career in Division 1 Athletics to join the family business in despair. Despite Ryan’s lack of experience, he was tasked with defining a winning culture and unifying the organization around the belief that better days were on the horizon. They have been among the 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies, as named by Inc. in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

We are proud to to call them a client.

Rankin McKenzie Partner, Larry Woolhiser is so pleased to be working with Calla Health, a health technology company centered on sustainably improving women’s access to cancer prevention.  They are creating innovations that increase wide scale surveillance of cervical pre-cancers and cancers.

Cervical cancer is the second leading cause of death for women worldwide; 85% of deaths occur in low and middle-income countries (LMICs), despite the fact that well-established interventions exist for pre-invasive disease.

Many low-resource countries lack the health care infrastructure required for the cytology-based screening and referral colposcopic diagnosis that have dramatically reduced the disease burden in wealthier countries. Calla’s vision is to sustainably improve women’s access to cancer prevention.
