joined Acadia to lead the next chapter of its growth and are fortunate

to have the opportunity to partner with a team of this caliber,” said

Chuck Edwards, Principal at WCP. “We believe their decision to join

Acadia recognizes the quality of the platform developed by the existing

team and evidences the promise that lies ahead for the Company.”

will serve as Co-President alongside former Acadia CEO Trey Carter; Ron

Fincher, Chief Operating Officer; Jack Polson, Chief Financial Officer;

and Chris Howard, who will serve as General Counsel. Karen Prince,

providing high quality behavioral healthcare services to patients and

their families, and I am fortunate to be surrounded by an exceptional

management team with proven success in the industry,” said Joey Jacobs,

CEO of Acadia.

with Joey Jacobs and his team in managing Acadia’s next stage of growth.
