National Veterinary Associates has an exciting opportunity to join the field leadership team of our fast-growing Equine business. We are currently looking to add a Manager of Regional Operations (MRO) to support practices located in the Eastern United States. The MRO, Equine will act as an operations expert supporting our existing Equine practices, and helping new practices transition into the group. This position will be based out of a home office to support the Eastern USA, and requires approximately 60% travel.
Based in Greater Los Angeles, National Veterinary Associates (“NVA”) is the largest private owner of freestanding veterinary practices in North America, with 900+ companion animal veterinary hospitals, pet resort, and equine locations.
NVA has grown rapidly over its history and continues to aggressively execute its growth plans via a combination of acquisition, de novo and same-store initiatives. NVA competes in a $25 billion industry that has grown faster than GDP over 20+ years with few exceptions. The industry is highly fragmented with approximately 22,000 veterinary practices; fewer than 4,000 are part of large chains. Advancing medical sophistication and technology combined with the evolving human-animal bond is driving greater spend per pet and veterinarians will look to partner with companies that have the capital, expertise and management talent to drive exceptional site-level growth as the industry evolves.
Due to continued growth, NVA is seeking to hire an additional MRO for its Equine Business, the fastest growing segment of the company, which consists of both ambulatory and hospital-based practices that focus on general and specialty medicine for horses and other large animals. This is a unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new organization and help define its future success.
Responsibilities for this role generally fall into three categories:
Operational support for the existing Equine practices (~60%):
Transition support for new practices joining the division (~25%)
Special projects in support of the division and the Equine portfolio (~15%):
The MRO will report directly to the Senior Director of Operations – Equine, and will closely collaborate with the Support Center and Transition Group leadership to support hospitals.
