Tony Rico has recently been promoted to Senior Vice President of Operations at Jackson & Coker , according to company president, Sandra Garrett. The promotion was effective September 1, 2009.
"This position has been vacant for a while and we wanted to fill it with someone with proven personal production and leadership abilities," Ms. Garrett noted. "Over the past 13 years, Tony has demonstrated his unquestioned loyalty to the company, commitment to clients and providers, and exceptional managerial skills in building one of the most successful specialty teams in Jackson & Coker's Locum Tenens division."
A graduate of the University of Utah, Mr. Rico began his professional career with another prominent physician recruitment firm in 1989 before joining Jackson & Coker in 1996. Recently he relocated his family from Salt Lake City, Utah, to Alpharetta work in corporate headquarters.
Commenting on his promotion, Mr. Rico said, "I welcome the opportunity to be of greater service to a company that's definitely a leader in the physician-staffing industry. Competition for business is keen, especially in this economy; but I welcome the challenge of helping to lead a staff of dedicated professionals to new levels of personal and professional success."
In his new position, he will oversee key aspects of the company's entire operations, including marketing, recruiting, accounting and customer relations. His role also requires close interaction with the Government and Permanent Placement divisions of the firm.
