Learn More About Our CEO

Kenneth Gibbs is President and CEO of Maimonides Medical Center. Mr. Gibbs joined the Board of Trustees at Maimonides Medical Center in May 2013, becoming the Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee and, a year later by acclamation, assumed the Chairmanship of the Board. He led Maimonides through a complex process of selecting North Shore-LIJ as the right partner for the institution, working with senior leadership at both institutions as well as a broad spectrum of internal and external stakeholders.

Mr. Gibbs has spent more than 30 years in public finance, during which time he has led numerous multi-million dollar financing deals to support essential public programs and facilities in cities and states around the country, including: revitalized urban downtown areas, upgraded schools, clean drinking water programs, airport upgrades, and the overall creation of thousands of jobs.

For the previous six years, Mr. Gibbs served as President of the Municipal Securities Group at Jefferies, LLC in New York City. He stepped down from this position before becoming President and CEO of Maimonides. Prior to his role at Jefferies, he was the Chief Executive Officer of DEPFA First Albany Securities, the Director of Public Finance at First Albany Capital, and held investment banking positions at Lazard Freres & Co., Credit Suisse First Boston, and Kidder Peabody.

Mr. Gibbs has applied his expertise and relationships in the public finance sector to advance the work of non-profit and public policy organizations. Since 1991, he has been a Board Trustee of the Citizens Budget Commission and served as its Chair from 2010-2014. Born and raised in New York City, Mr. Gibbs is a graduate of Harvard College and lives in Manhattan with his wife, Cathy Cramer. They have four children.
