Henry Schein, Inc., the largest provider of healthcare solutions to office-based dental and medical practitioners worldwide, announced today that its Board of Directors has appointed Carole T. Faig as an independent director, serving until the 2024 Annual Meeting of Stockholders in May. At that time, she is expected to stand for re-election to the Board by a vote of the company’s stockholders.

Ms. Faig brings extensive expertise in finance, audit, and public accounting, with particular experience in the healthcare sector, covering hospitals, health insurance, biotechnology, and medical device companies. Retiring in July 2021 after a 38-year career at Ernst & Young LLP (EY), she served in various leadership roles, including U.S. Health Leader and West Region Health and Life Sciences Leader. In these capacities, she was responsible for developing and driving EY’s strategy to grow its healthcare practice in a rapidly changing environment. Ms. Faig holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting from Sam Houston State University and is a certified public accountant.

“We are pleased to welcome Carole to our Board. Her proven expertise in navigating the transformation of healthcare and her deep accounting experience will be valuable assets as we advance the strategic goals of the company. We expect Carole will bring new perspectives that will enhance the effectiveness of our Board, and we look forward to her contributions to Henry Schein’s continued success,” said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein.

Ms. Faig is currently a member of the boards of directors of three companies, where she serves as the Audit Committee Chair: Cue Health, a Nasdaq-listed company, and Affinia Therapeutics and QuVa Pharma, private equity–backed private businesses. A champion for diversity, she served on EY’s Gender Equity Task Force and was awarded EY’s Chairman’s Value Award and Americas Assurance Inclusive Leadership Award in recognition of her commitment to building an inclusive workplace.

“It is a pleasure to join the Board of Henry Schein and be part of a team actively shaping the future of healthcare amidst a rapidly evolving health ecosystem,” said Ms. Faig. “Henry Schein’s commitment to providing innovative healthcare solutions and to be a trusted advisor and consultant to our customers is truly inspiring. I look forward to leveraging my expertise to support our continued growth and impact.”
