He spent nearly ten of those years as the Jail Administrator and, as such, is able to provide critical insight to the corporate staff and help bridge the gap between corporate decision making and operational needs. His role at CBH Medical naturally flows from his work history, as he has intimate knowledge of the modern principles and practices that govern correctional facility administration. Most importantly, however, Mr. Krom is practical and understands how to take CBH Medical’s overall strategy and implement it into operations in a manner that provides the best services at the best price.
