LocumTenens.com, a leading physician and advanced practitioner staffing agency, today announced that Matt Erickson, partner and vice president of radiology and oncology, was appointed as president of The National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations (NALTO) board of directors for a two-year term. NALTO is the only professional association of temporary physician staffing firms committed to a code of ethics and maintaining the highest industry standards. Its company members and the physicians they represent are held to strict guidelines for professional conduct, according to the association’s website.
“Being appointed president of NALTO’s board of directors is an honor,” said Erickson, who previously served as vice president of the board of directors, co-chaired the meeting and conference committee, and was a member of the ethics committee. “LocumTenens.com is a long-standing member of NALTO, so I understand the significance of NALTO membership and sincerely appreciate the opportunity to help further its mission. My focus as president will be on driving member engagement through education as it relates to the ever-changing healthcare legislative landscape. I believe education is important because it better prepares members to deal with more sophisticated healthcare organizations and clinicians in our industry.”
Erickson began his career in healthcare staffing in 2005, and he has been at LocumTenens.com for the past ten years. In addition to serving as vice president of the radiology and oncology departments, he has held roles at the company that include managing director of the primary care, anesthesia and radiology departments, and divisional vice president of anesthesia, radiology and oncology.
“Matt quickly established himself as a leader after he joined our company in 2009,” added Chris Franklin, president of LocumTenens.com. “The teams he’s led here at LocumTenens.com have truly benefited from his positive guidance and industry expertise, and I’m confident NALTO’s board of directors will benefit from his leadership just as much as we have.”
Erickson’s presidency became official at NALTO’s 2020 Annual Convention in Tampa, Florida, on March 12th. John S. Daniel of Alliance Recruiting Resources preceded Erickson as president. “I’m looking forward to seeing the impact Matt has on engagement through educational endeavors during his tenure as president,” said Daniel.
