Meet Our Founder
Donald H. McGahee
Founder / Shareholder
Don McGahee founded HPS in 2002 to provide group purchasing services and consulting for the clients of Medical Management Associates, a highly-regarded physician consulting firm. Before HPS, Don served as the chief sourcing officer for two Fortune 50 companies and provided consulting services to several large, multi-national clients.
As the lone employee of HPS for the first six years, Don was responsible for developing the unique approach and customer-focused operating principles that have led to HPS's significant and sustained growth. Don strives to maintain a reputation of integrity while developing innovative solutions. His proven track record of success is based on two main principles.
- Do the right thing.
- Always do what's in the best interest of the customer.
In January 2023, Don turned over the title of President and CEO of HPS to Ken Stansberger. Don continues to be actively involved as consultant, mentor, and advisor to the HPS leadership team while serving as a member of the Governing Board. When asked about this change, Don said, "I am so excited that we were able to attract someone with Ken's background, experience, and his commitment to maintain the core values of HPS. I look forward to working with Ken and think he will be a catalyst to create incremental value and savings for our members."
