Appoints Jon David Willingham to Board of Directors
AMOpportunities, the pioneer market leader in clinical training as a service for medical students and nurses, is building on significant 2022 groundwork to expand AMO’s B2B segment. In 2022, AMO took live dozens of new clinical sites while signing new schools and dozens of new partnerships. These efforts are already bearing fruit with significant B2B revenue growth year-over-year.
AMO provides the first online and transparent marketplace to help medical trainees secure otherwise difficult-to-find clinical rotations while supporting hospitals and schools to manage them. By volume of students placed per year, AMO is larger than the largest U.S. medical school.
To further build on its momentum, AMO announced today the addition of Jon David Willingham of PACE Healthcare Capital to AMO’s Board of Directors, joining representatives of investor OCA Ventures as well as AMO senior management.
“We’re so excited to have JD join the AMO board,” said Kyle Swinsky, CEO, AMOpportunities. “His years of experience advising disruptive companies and depth of knowledge in supporting boards through accelerated company growth will be crucial to the expansion of AMO.”
Jon David joins the board through PACE Healthcare Capital’s latest investment in AMOpportunities. This investment is part of the company’s continued B2B growth and expanded offerings to serve domestic and international medical school, osteopathic, physician assistant, and nursing school graduates. Additional funds will be used to continue building out the technology for new segments and to expand the AMO platform.
Among other roles, Willingham is a partner of PACE Healthcare Capital and has spent the better part of two decades developing and financing innovative, values-aligned businesses. He has helped build or advised a diversity of investment firms and has been deeply involved in the growth and governance of myriad companies.
“While so many communities face a shortage of medical professionals, AMO’s technology is addressing a critical training bottleneck: transforming an antiquated and decentralized analog clinical rotation system into a transparent online marketplace that seamlessly supports both the student and the host institution,” says Willingham. “I’m delighted to join AMO’s board as they continue their impressive growth.”
