We’re excited to announce the appointment of Ryan Buck as President of Ethos Veterinary Health (Ethos), our 145 world-class specialty and emergency veterinary hospitals. We view Ryan’s appointment as a strategic next step in our announcement to form two distinct businesses, Ethos Veterinary Health and NVA, preparing for an eventual IPO of each in the next two to three years. Ethos will focus on building the premier Specialty and Emergency veterinary organization leading the advancement of cutting-edge medicine to extend and improve the lives of pets.
Ryan has held several veterinary leadership roles, including Vice President of Operations for NVA Compassion-First, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Compassion-First Pet Hospitals, and CEO of several specialty and emergency hospitals, including Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists (GCVS) in Texas. His passion and deep understanding of the veterinary industry will be instrumental in driving growth and building an industry-leading veterinary organization known for delivering advanced and empathetic care.
This is a milestone moment for Ethos, and we are thrilled to have Ryan leading our Ethos business.
