Andreas Pahl, MBA, SPHR, CVPM
Director of Analytics
Andreas is thrilled to be part of the Encore family and brings with him over 25 years of combined veterinary and human health care administration experience. He has experience as a veterinary management instructor and veterinary management consultant, with an emphasis on practice organization, information technology, administration, budgeting, finance, data analysis, planning, purchasing, and human resources. Andreas was formerly the hospital administrator for a large NY based general practice and emergency hospital. Additionally, his background includes managing another veterinary hospital and extensive experience both in human hospital administration and various emergency medical services positions.
As the director of analytics, Andreas is an extension of the finance team. He is in a cross-functional financial, operational, and information technology-focused role that allows him to finally put all that accumulated useless information in his head to good use for the benefit of Encore’s partner hospitals.
In 2001, Andreas earned a master’s degree in public administration with a concentration in healthcare administration. He also earned a certificate of advanced studies in gerontology in 2003 and a Master in Business Administration with a finance concentration in 2005. In 2008, Andreas earned the Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification credential and achieved Certified Veterinary Practice Manager (CVPM) certification in 2010. He added the SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) designation in 2015.
As an active member of the VHMA, Andreas has served on the program committee and on the CVPM Board from 2013 to 2019.
Andreas’ wife, Debbie, and his identical twin daughters, Alex and Vickie, think his role at Encore is a perfect fit, and hope that Encore keeps him so busy that he forgets to give science and tech lessons during family dinner time.
