Stan Creighton, Founder of National Veterinary Associates


Founder, National Veterinary Associates

After serving as a practice owner for 19 years, and a practicing clinician for 24 years in hospitals providing general, specialized and emergency care, I saw that things were changing in the industry. And I wanted to find a way to help local doctors by building on what they had already worked so hard to create.

I founded NVA with the intent of enabling retiring and still-practicing veterinarians to keep their teams and culture intact, while continuing to grow. We’re here for one sole purpose – to provide the resources to enable them to pursue their passions, whether they’re envisioning an expansion for their practice, or more free time for their personal interests.

While I am still involved, I have appointed an exceptionally committed, incredibly capable leadership team, and I have full confidence in their commitment to the original vision for the company. I look forward to seeing all the innovative new ways NVA will continue to serve the veterinary community.
