Alison A. Cornell is a tenured executive who has worked in health care, consumer products and telecommunications. She joins Compassion-First from International Flavors & Fragrances Inc., where she served as both an executive vice president and chief financial officer. Prior to that, Cornell worked for nearly 30 years with AT&T and Covance, the world’s largest drug development services company.

“Alison brings us the ability to drive business transformation, accelerate growth, and strengthen financial and operational controls that will further set the stage for our next chapter of prosperity, evolution and innovation," said John Payne, CEO of Compassion-First Pet Hospitals.

Jean Clifton, the former CFO for Compassion-First, will now serve as chief business development officer, responsible for mergers and acquisitions, companywide initiatives related to the addition of new hospitals, new hospital/greenfield developments and other corporate innovations.

“Jean knows our business and our people. She has a tireless commitment to our vision and has been a critical member of our leadership since our inception,” Payne said. “I look forward to working more closely with her as we build and grow our family of hospitals.”
