Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 03, 2011 Dr. Frank Heasley, CEO and Founder of MedZilla.com, the internet’s most established source for health care, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, science and research professionals and information, announced his resignation today. Three Keys Consulting Group will manage the company’s day-to-day operations. Heasley himself will remain with the company as the Chairman of the Board.
“Some time ago, I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma,” Heasley said. “Since then, while preparing the company for my eventual departure, I’ve spent a lot of time learning about the disease and working to support others suffering from it. This transition will not only bring new minds and fresh ideas to MedZilla, but it will also allow me to continue these efforts.”
Since founding MedZilla in 1994, Heasley set the job board apart from others by providing anonymized candidate abstracts, allowing employers and recruiters to peruse listings before actually signing up; developing a proprietary document matching system, which suggests the best candidates for any given position; and working to maintain candidate confidentiality by constantly updating information security measures. MedZilla itself was the first niche job board on the internet, and it remains one of the two longest-running job boards online.
Heasley’s successor, John Burkhardt, has been with MedZilla since 2003, and has worked closely with him throughout his eight-year tenure. After spending three years as Director of Operations, Burkhardt, a graduate of the University of Florida’s Warrington School of Business and an accomplished Information Systems Architect, was promoted to Managing Director.
