Moffitt Cancer Center Names New Chief Human Resource Officer

June 01, 2015

TAMPA, Fla. Moffitt Cancer Center has named Mariana Bugallo-Muros as the new Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer, following a national search. Bugallo-Muros joined Moffitt this week and has succeeded Joanne Olson, who retired in March.

Bugallo-Muros comes to Moffitt from Partners HealthCare in Boston, where she served 18 years in corporate human resources leadership positions, most recently as vice president.

“As the top HR executive there, Mariana led the Human Resources team and partnered with senior leadership in all domains on HR strategic planning and initiatives,” says Mark Hulse, R.N., senior vice president and chief administrative officer. “Mariana is an outstanding HR leader, and we are very fortunate to have her as a member of the Moffitt leadership team.”

Partners HealthCare includes Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Bugallo-Muros’ experience in a $7 billion academic integrated delivery system with more than 60,000 employees, where she drove efforts to bind the organization’s culture and raise its performance, as well as leading innovative talent acquisition initiatives, will add great value to Moffitt.

“This is an opportunity for me to bring my skills, experience and passion for human resources to a high-performing Moffitt leadership team with a clear vision for the future,” Bugallo-Muros says. “I consider it a privilege to join Moffitt and I look forward to getting started.”

Bugallo-Muros holds a bachelor’s degree in Business and a Master of Science degree in Management.
