Ned Carlson is the Chief Executive Officer of Trumpet Behavioral Health.  Ned joined the organization in 2017 after serving as an operating partner for Windrose Health Investors, Trumpet’s investment partner. 

Ned has over 20 years of experience building and scaling businesses in operations, strategy, and financial management roles.  Prior to joining Trumpet, Ned served as the President of GlobalCare, a technology-enabled service business providing intelligent claims routing, re-pricing optimization, cost containment, and data analysis to healthcare payors.  Previously, he was a founding member and Managing Director at Dawntreader Ventures, a technology-focused venture capital fund.  

Ned has a degree in Government from Harvard University and currently resides in Denver with his wife and two daughters. 

The ability for a non-clinician, such as myself, to play a role in impacting the lives of the clients we serve at TBH provides a tremendous amount of motivation and commitment to our teams, and our families. On a personal note, my nephew was diagnosed and received intensive ABA therapy at a young age and it transformed his life trajectory. So, I know first-hand how impactful services, like those which we provide at TBH, can be on an individual and on their family.
