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
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.”
