Former VA Secretary Shulkin named adviser at Eisner

EisnerAmper, the accounting, tax and advisory firm, appointed a former President Donald Trump administration official as an adviser for the firm’s Health Care Services Group.

Dr. David Shulkin, who served as secretary of veterans affairs under Trump and also served in the department during President Barack Obama’s administration, will engage Veterans Affairs, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health to provide guidance from the private sector, EisnerAmper said in a news release.

“The addition of Dr. Shulkin — and his vast knowledge, experience and network — really puts EisnerAmper’s Health Care Services Group into the consulting stratosphere of this sector,” said Ronald Dreskin, partner-in-charge of the Health Care Services Group. “We, and our clients, welcome him with open arms.”

Shulkin is president of Shulkin Solutions, the firm said.

As part of his advisory role, Shulkin will host a podcast series focused on private-sector innovation in the federal government.

“Government works best when it partners with the private sector,” Shulkin said. “We hope to shed some light on how best to work with government so that everyone concerned benefits. I’m thrilled to work with EisnerAmper and co-host this podcast series in hopes of being a positive, transformative advocate for creating more efficient government services.”
