Providence Service Corporation Appoints Michael-Bryant Hicks As Senior Vice President, General Counsel, Corporate Secretary, And Chief Compliance Officer









TUCSON, Ariz., Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Providence Service Corporation (Nasdaq: PRSC) today announced the appointment of Michael-Bryant Hicks as Senior Vice President, General Counsel, Corporate Secretary, and Chief Compliance Officer. Hicks succeeds Fred D. Furman, who is retiring after ten years of serving as General Counsel.

Hicks, age 39, comes to Providence with significant corporate and regulatory experience in the healthcare industry. He was most recently an Assistant General Counsel in the law department of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. (NYSE: DVA) in Denver, CO. In this role, Hicks led numerous mergers and acquisitions for various DaVita entities. After leading the $4.4 billion acquisition of HealthCare Partners to a successful close in November 2012, Hicks served as interim general counsel of the division.

"Hicks' legal, related business expertise and ethics will bring significant value to Providence," said Providence Chief Executive Officer, Warren Rustand. "His experience and passion for behavioral health issues is a great match for Providence's business and growth agenda as we focus on strategic opportunities in the healthcare sector."

Prior to DaVita, Hicks was Associate General Counsel for Beckman Coulter where he managed the legal function for the company's Asia and Latin America operations and provided legal counsel for domestic mergers and acquisitions and regulatory matters. Hicks began his career working as a corporate lawyer for two large law firms, Vinson and Elkins and Mayer Brown, Rowe & Maw.

Hicks received his law degree from Yale Law School and his bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In addition, he worked on small business incubation projects as a Fulbright Scholar in Quito, Ecuador.

Rustand added, "I would like to thank Fred for his ten years of outstanding service at Providence. During this time, Fred did an exceptional job of guiding the company's legal function, oversaw multiple acquisitions, and helped transform our business. We wish Fred the best in his retirement."
