Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, Dallas County Medical Society
Jon R. Roth, MS, CAE, will join the Dallas County Medical Society (DCMS) in January 2020 as the new executive vice president and chief executive officer.
Most recently, Roth was CEO of the California Pharmacists Association (CPhA), the largest statewide pharmacist society in the country, where he led legislative advocacy, strategy, and communications. Among his achievements at CPhA, Roth was recognized nationally for his advocacy work and led the successful transition of the CPhA’s quarterly magazine publication to a nationally distributed, scientific peer-reviewed journal.
“As an association professional who has worked with several allied health professions that collaborate with physicians, I am excited to now work directly with physicians as the head of the healthcare team at DCMS,” says Roth. “This opportunity is a wonderful mix, allowing me to bring forward my two decades of health care association experience with the opportunity to support physicians in their practices for the betterment of the patients they serve.”
Roth replaces former DCMS CEO Michael Darrouzet, who recently became the new CEO of the Texas Medical Association in Austin. Tuft & Associates also partnered with TMA on the CEO search.
ABOUT TUFT: “I valued the high level of communication, personal outreach, and clarity in each step of the recruitment process. Jill Christie ensured that each step in the process was outlined clearly, and I knew what to expect as next steps.
“Working with such an impressive and professional search firm like Tuft helped to advance my career and professional goals. The Tuft team of professionals provided insights and feedback to my recruitment process and the opportunity I was exploring to help me assess if this was an ideal fit. I genuinely felt they had the client organization and my own best interests in mind to facilitate the perfect match. This skill is what I believe is the most important trait for a search firm.”
