BRAMPTON, Ontario, April 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dynacare, a Canadian health and wellness solutions company, has announced that, effective immediately, Vito Ciciretto will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer of the organization. Since November 2018, Ciciretto has served as both Interim CEO and Vice-President of Operations for Dynacare and has demonstrated exceptional leadership and vision in these roles.
“I’m honoured to have been chosen to lead Dynacare at a time when we are focused on innovation in the health and wellness industry,” said Ciciretto. “Our dynamic team and service offering ensure that we are well-positioned to support the lives of our patients and customers with commitment and care.”
Having joined Dynacare as Vice-President of Laboratory Operations and Customer Service in 2009, Ciciretto has consistently demonstrated his ability to collaborate effectively, drive results and lead with clarity and vision. His many accomplishments since joining Dynacare include the Lab of the Future initiative, the implementation of Lean Six Sigma process improvement methodology, and his continuous collaboration with the business development team to strengthen the overall patient and customer experience.
Bill Haas, Managing Board Director of Dynacare, has recognized Vito for his efforts to lead change and achieve organizational excellence. “Vito brings to this important role a relentless commitment to employee and customer satisfaction, a drive for continuous improvement, and a passion for bringing value to our stakeholders. I believe that investing in talent within an organization can yield extraordinary results, and Vito is an outstanding example of that principle. I am confident that he will continue to provide strong leadership to drive growth at Dynacare, and to fulfill our mission to be Canada’s health and wellness solutions leader and vision to support healthy lives with commitment and care.”
Previous to his roles at Dynacare, Ciciretto was the Chief Operating Officer at Algonquin Power Income Trust and held 15-years of management roles of increasing responsibility at Honeywell Aerospace.
