John Daniels of Quarles & Brady Named Aurora Health Care Board Chairman

MILWAUKEE, WIS. — The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP today announced that firm chairman emeritus John W. Daniels Jr. has been named chairman of the Aurora Health Care board of directors. Daniels has been a board member since 2008.

“I look forward to working with the board, staff and other stakeholders at Aurora to advance the health of the organization as well as that of its many patients,” said Daniels. “Quality has always been the hallmark of Aurora and will continue to serve it well in this very challenging time in the industry.”

As chairman of Quarles & Brady, Daniels, a Harvard law graduate, drove numerous value-creation initiatives. During his tenure at the firm’s helm, he led Quarles through a fundamental transformation, shifting from the traditional operational model for law firms to a modern client-centric, business-minded organization. Daniels drove that fundamental cultural shift in the midst of a challenging economy, leading to significant growth while much of the legal industry declined.

Daniels has been well recognized for his leadership in the business, civic and legal communities. Among many more recognitions over the years, he has been recognized for his leadership as a national legal leader, receiving the American Bar Association’s Spirit of Excellence designation and the National Bar Association’s Legacy Award. The National Law Journal named him as one of “The 50 Most Influential Diverse Attorneys in America,” the Business Journal of Milwaukee listed Daniels in its “Power Book,” and Daniels was named 2013 “Managing Partner of the Year” by a group of his managing- partner colleagues in U.S. law firms.
