More than once, Doximity’s been described as a LinkedIn that’s optimized for doctors–a real-name network enabling physicians to make professional connections and patient care collaborations in an environment that’s secure and HIPAA-compliant.
We’ll likely be getting even more of that comparison thanks to this nice piece of news: The newest member of our board of directors is entrepreneur and LinkedIn co-founder Konstantin Guericke.
Mr. Guericke’s rich experience growing and managing LinkedIn’s user base (he led the company’s marketing from pre-product phase to six million members and profitability) is a perfect fit for Doximity. With over 9% of physicians already members, we’re expanding quickly, and working with the co-founder of the largest business-focused social network in the world will undoubtedly help manage and shape our next phase of growth.
On the board, Mr. Guericke joins Kevin Spain of Emergence Capital Partners and Dr. Gil Kliman of InterWest Partners. It’s an incredible group, with deep expertise in both social media and healthcare. We’re proud to have each of them involved.
For even more details, Bloomberg and others have posted our press release on their sites. Here’s the quote Mr. Guericke provided for that announcement: “Doximity provides a very useful collaboration service for physicians. By focusing on a specific segment of the professional market, Doximity is well-positioned to deliver a user experience and value that is second-to-none for physicians in the U.S. and worldwide. I’m pleased to join the board of a leader in a large and valuable category and am looking forward to help drive accelerated growth, engagement and profitability.”
