Vice President of Professional Recruitment and Placement – Linton Creel
The Pharmacy Recruitment Division here at HealthCare Consultants Pharmacy Staffing is managed by Linton Creel, our Vice President of Professional Recruitment and Placement. Linton has extensive knowledge in the area of pharmacy recruitment and his duties include overseeing all aspects of permanent placement, direct hire and recruitment.
In March of 2010, Linton was hired by HCC President Bob Miller to work in the role of Pharmacy Recruiter. He advanced quickly to become Vice President of Professional Recruitment and Placement due to his industry knowledge, extraordinary professional skills and previous work history in the field of recruiting and permanent placement of pharmacists across the United States. With over 20 years of experience, Linton is recognized for his success and considered by many to be a leader in the pharmacy placement, direct-hire and pharmacist recruitment fields.
Previously in 1999, Linton worked as a Pharmacy Recruiter for Contract Health Professionals located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Contract Health Professionals was acquired by Cardinal Health several years later, leading Linton to become involved in an expanded role for a major national placement and recruitment company. Linton’s industry knowledge and success continued to grow and he became involved in the opening of branch pharmacy staffing offices in the Jacksonville, FL, Atlanta, GA, and Houston, TX markets. Then in 2006, Soliant Health purchased Cardinal Health Pharmacy Staffing, where Linton’s success continued until he eventually was hired to join the team here at HealthCare Consultants Pharmacy Staffing.
During the past 20 years, Linton has witnessed and experienced the many changes in the pharmacy community. Linton has made many new friends here at HCC and provided professional pharmacy recruitment and placement services to clients in almost every state across the nation.
After college, Linton was inducted into the United States Army and retired from the Army after more than 28 years of service. Linton currently lives in Palm Beach County, Florida with his wife Laura. They are both avid SCUBA Divers and have in-depth knowledge of the reef fishes found in Florida’s waters. Both Linton and Laura are involved in supporting their community through their church.
