Nashville Business Journal Recognizes Leaders Chosen by their Peers 

Brentwood, TN (September 10, 2019)

Bill Southwick, Chief Executive Officer of QualDerm Partners, a company that creates market-leading dermatology practice partnerships through acquisition and de novo development, was recently recognized by the Nashville Business Journal as one of the area’s Most Admired CEOs.

The Nashville Business Journal solicited nominations for this award from the public. The award finalists were then chosen by the nominees through a closed-ballot voting process. According to the Nashville Business Journal, this process was “a way to determine which of the area business leaders are truly most admired by their peers.” Finalists were selected in 7 categories: Non-profit, Local Office/Operations, 10-25 Employees, 26-100 Employees, 101-500 Employees, 500+ Employees and Public Companies. Southwick was recognized in the 500+ Employees category.

“Bill is the epitome of a true leader; this award is well-deserved,” says John Zitelli, MD, founder of Zitelli & Brodland, P.C. Skin Cancer Center, a QualDerm-affiliated practice. “The combination of his experience and determination to stay focused on QualDerm’s core value of delivering quality care is invaluable to our network of dermatology practices. ”

Southwick has served as the Chief Executive Officer of QualDerm Partners since 2015. During this time the company has experienced significant growth and garnered a reputation for quality and integrity within its market. Throughout his 20+ year career in healthcare, Southwick has held numerous leadership positions, including CEO of The Rehab Document Company (ReDoc), Senior Vice President of Operations of United Surgical Partners, President of Surgical Health Partners, and Chief Development Officer of Women’s Health Partners. Southwick is on the Advisory Board for The Legion Fund, an organization that assists military members and their families.

The 2019 Most Admired CEO award winners will be honored at a reception in November.
