John W. Anderson

Founder and President

“My prior healthcare career exposed me to many different recruiting firms. I quickly learned that most added little or no value and in most cases were simply “paper pushers”. That was not the type of service that I wanted to pay for then and not the type of service that we would ask our clients to pay for now.”

John founded Management Recruiters of Nashville, Inc., in January 1999, after a successful 23 year healthcare career.  His past roles include CEO roles with both, a publicly-traded, nationwide healthcare services provider and a venture-backed disease and network management company, various Corporate and Field VP positions and National, Regional and Local Sales and Operations management roles. Significant career accomplishments include a successful IPO, the successful turn-around of a $500+ million healthcare services company and two new business start-ups.

From a single desk in 1999 to international recognition as one of the Top 50 offices of the world’s largest search and recruiting organization, Management Recruiters of Nashville, Inc., has seen consistent year to year growth.  Along the way John has been recognized for his individual efforts including three times being named a Top Ten MRINetwork® Billing Manager and five times, a Top Five MRINetwork® North Atlantic Region Billing Manager.  

John’s philosophy about this business is simple and remains the same as the day he founded the company – “Management Recruiters of Nashville, Inc., will bring value to the search and recruiting process and offer the type and quality of high-level service that I would expect for myself, whether I were the hiring manager or the candidate.”
