BRADENTON, Fla. — Raymond James has hired Jack Dudick in the firm’s healthcare finance group.

Dudick, managing director and head of healthcare real estate, has worked more than 15 years in the industry. He is based in Chicago.

Prior to HFF, Dudick worked as senior vice president of investments at Lillibridge Healthcare Services Inc., and as a senior consultant in Arthur Andersen’s real estate services group.

Dudick is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame.

“Jack has been successful at quickly growing practices and is a great fit to shepherd our continued steady growth,” said Joe Beck, managing director and co-head of the healthcare finance group. “His unique perspective will be a great asset to clients and to the team as we expand the reach of our full-service platform.”
