CEO at Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles
EXECUTIVE CONTRIBUTOR POWERED MAGAZINE
Sam Mandel is the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles (KCLA), one of the first ketamine clinics to open in the United States in 2014. He is a lifelong mental health advocate and entrepreneur who has enjoyed successful roles in a wide variety of industries, including entertainment (as an award-winning actor and director), finance, hospitality, retail, real estate, and other service-based businesses. Sam is responsible for the day-to-day operations and strategic direction of KCLA, tripling the company's revenue, staffing, and clinical space in the last five years. He oversees all non-clinical functions, including patient satisfaction, human resources, vendor relations, marketing, public relations, technology, compliance, legal, and finance.
KCLA is the premier ketamine clinic for Ketamine Infusion Therapy for depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health conditions. Under Sam's continued leadership, the company is rapidly transforming into a comprehensive psychiatry practice now, including psychiatric medication management, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), Spravato, and additional treatment offerings coming soon. In Sam's "spare time," he enjoys weightlifting, traveling, snowboarding, and hanging out with his dog Banksy.
