SAN DIEGO, Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Susan Salka, President and CEO of AMN Healthcare, has been named 2016 Most Admired CEO by the San Diego Business Journal.
The award is given out each year to industry leaders who have excelled over the past year in advancing their company's success and maintaining a positive work environment and team member satisfaction. Salka won the award in the category of Large Public Companies.
"It is quite an honor to for me to receive this award, but it's really a reflection of our entire team and a testament to the fantastic talent and passion they bring to our clients every day," Salka said. "We've had a truly incredible year, and I've never been so proud of our company as I am today. But just wait -- our future is even brighter."
Under Salka's leadership of AMN Healthcare, the year 2015 was marked by unprecedented growth as she spearheaded the acquisitions of five companies. These acquisitions built on the portfolio of innovative workforce solutions AMN Healthcare offers, and client reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. Additionally, Salka leads by example and is a motivating CEO; AMN was recently featured in Fortune Magazine as one of the top 10 companies for women in leadership.
In addition to her contributions in 26 years working at AMN Healthcare, Susan currently serves on the Board of Directors of McKesson Corporation, a Fortune top ten company. She is also on the board of The Campanile Foundation at San Diego State University, as well as on the editorial advisory board of Directors & Boards magazine.
