Shareef Ghanem rejoins Avalere as a managing director, bringing more than 10 years of experience in due diligence, operations, and corporate strategy.

“We are thrilled to welcome back Shareef after 6 highly productive years broadening his understanding of the healthcare ecosystem,” says Rob Carter, practice director. “He brings us a hard-to-match set of capabilities: depth in critical and new content areas, impeccable communication skills, deep knowledge of the diligence process, and a passion for leadership.”

Shareef provides due diligence and advisory support to financial sponsors investing in the healthcare sector and their portfolio companies. His work focuses on assessing the policy, regulatory, reimbursement, and commercial considerations that may impact investment opportunities across the spectrum of healthcare services, pharmacy, managed care, and digital health.

From 2012 to 2016, Shareef worked closely with healthcare investors and stakeholders as part of Avalere’s emerging due diligence advisory services team. Prior to rejoining in 2023, Shareef held a variety of leadership roles within growth-stage digital health organizations, building expertise in value-based care enablement, health plan administration and cost containment, and employer-sponsored benefits.

“Avalere has consistently been a crucial voice in this ever-changing healthcare market,” says Shareef, “and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to work alongside this amazing team once again.”

Shareef holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of Chicago and a bachelor’s degree in public health from The Johns Hopkins University.
