Chris Nolan

Chris founded Launchpad Healthcare Recruiters in 2021 following 7 years in the International recruitment sector. He also has 16 years of sales, marketing, and leadership roles in healthcare working with:

  • Medical Doctors – GP’s and several specialties
  • Dentists
  • Pharmacists
  • Provincial Health Authorities
  • National and Provincial regulators in medicine, pharmacy, and physiotherapy.

 

An active member of his community, Chris has coached basketball & soccer, and served on the boards of the Special Olympics of Nova Scotia, and the Canadian Cancer Society.

As a StFX grad and proud Maritimer, Chris doesn’t mind the odd gathering. He has occasionally been accused of liking outdated music. He can be found on weekends shuttling his 3 kids around, skiing, playing some hockey, walking his dog, and (eventually) travelling. He tends to enjoy the broad strokes over the details any day.

Food: Italian & sushi

Drink: Good coffee, most beer, sauvignon blanc

Music: Anything live, Springsteen, Petty, the Hip (I cried watching their documentary – didn’t realize how much I liked them until Gord passed – RIP), Dua Lipa, and the Lumineers. Saw Maroon 5 this past summer – unreal live show. 

Movies/TV: Goodfellas (“get yer shinebox…”), True Romance (sooo many good actors in that), The Shawshank Redemption, Breaking Bad, and Ted Lasso.

Favorite Expression: “These are champagne problems…”

Secret facts: One of the last fans of “The Sweet Science”, particular about footwear, always last one on a plane.
