"As the new Director of Operations, Ms. Thompson will play a leadership role in scaling up the organization for growth, strengthening our systems and processes, and achieving category leadership in patient satisfaction," noted Guru Sankar, AFC Portland's President.
Daniel Reese recently joined the AFC/Doctors Express Portland team but has close to 20 years of experience in marketing and retail operations.
