Bart Valdez has been named the CEO of the combined healthcare staffing firms Fastaff LLC, US Nursing Corp., trustaff Management Inc., CardioSolution LLC and Stella.ai Inc.
The announcement was made by private investment firms Cornell Capital and Trilantic North America, which acquired the firms in deals earlier this year. The trustaff, CardioSolution and Stella acquisitions were announced in February. The Fastaff and US Nursing acquisitions were announced later that month.
Valdez has more than 20 years of experience in the human capital management sector. He most recently served as president and CEO of Fastaff and US Nursing from 2019 until his appointment as chairman in February, having doubled the size of the business during that time.
“With his significant industry experience and deep understanding of our business, we are confident that Bart is the right leader to accelerate organic growth, drive greater product and service innovation, and position the combined company to help meet the nation’s expanding healthcare staffing needs,” said Stephen Trevor, partner of Cornell Capital, and Jeremy Lynch, partner of Trilantic North America.
Valdez succeeds Adam Zoia, who is stepping down as CEO to attend to unanticipated family matters, according to the investment firms. Zoia will remain on the company’s board.
“Given Adam’s unanticipated family matters, we and Adam agree that now is the right time to implement a thoughtful transition as the combined company enters its execution phase,” Trevor and Lynch said. “We are grateful for Adam’s leadership and his help in ensuring a smooth transition, and we look forward to benefitting from his expertise as he continues to impart his entrepreneurial ideas and vision as a member of our board.”
