Noah Nordheimer / Chairman of the Board
Noah Nordheimer is a passionate visionary, leader and investor, with a 20-year record of consistently exceeding the goals and aspirations of his investment partners and community stakeholders.
In 2014, using his financial acumen and entrepreneurial expertise, Noah founded the Concerted Care Group (CCG) and created a uniquely integrated model of care that will improve patient outcomes in addiction treatment. Noah often speaks publicly about the flawed “siloed” approach that most providers take to treating addiction in the United States, an approach that he views as less than efficacious. So, rather than separating the modalities from each other, he has instead done the opposite: CCG’s innovative approach moves addiction treatment, behavioral health, primary and preventative care, as well as other critical components others call “wrap-around services”, under one roof. Noah’s vision is reshaping how substance abuse treatment is addressed, elevating and redefining the standards of care and post-treatment possibilities for both patients and families. The CARF Accreditors have praised Noah and CCG, saying: “They are doing what 1-2% of providers are even thinking about doing and doing it exceptionally well.”
Noah’s career trajectory has been leading him towards this very place. He served as Senior Vice President of the NFAHS, Inc., where he maintained annual development budgets of $50-$200 million. Prior to being at NFAHS, Noah served as Director of the Transwestern Commercial Services LLC, a privately held global commercial real estate firm, at the age of 24 and after only 3 years with the company. He has also been hands-on in the creation and deployment of complex capital formation strategies, including Multi-Layered Public-Private Debt & Equity Structures; Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits; U.S. Treasury Equity Investment (New Market Tax Credits); Fixed Rate- and Variable Rate Tax Exempt Bonds; and EB5 Equity & Debt, among other investment vehicles.
