gwen_guillotteGwen Guillotte, who spent the past eight years at Schumacher Group, has joined The Picard Group as director of health care consulting services.

Guillotte most recently was SVP of revenue at Schumacher Group, overseeing the company’s national billing and collection efforts for physician services provided for more than 3 million emergency room visits last year. She oversaw all pre-billing functions and led the managed care and analytical teams within Schumacher Group. Before Schumacher, Guillotte was senior associate at Standard & Poor’s corporate value consulting division in Houston.

"With Gwen’s depth of health care financial expertise, The Picard Group can now help hospitals and physicians predict those impacts, as well as recommend suggested adjustments to minimize the financial effects of those impacts."

Guillotte has a BA degree in economics as well as an MBA with specialization in finance and accounting from the A.B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University. She is on the boards of the Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and Episcopal School of Acadiana.
