As CEO, I will continue to make sure that we are leading with passion to achieve a future where technology is empowering the healthcare industry – facilities, leaders and professionals – to effectively and efficiently meet the needs of the people they serve.”

Vitek is a longtime champion and leader for the vision to leverage technology to transform how healthcare leaders and licensed professionals show up to work, equipping facilities with the data, insights and network to power strategic, scalable workforce decisions. His strategic leadership of ShiftKey’s growth in his previous role as chief revenue officer, combined with his creative energy and commitment to investing in people, positions ShiftKey to continue growing in strong partnership with the board.

Vitek brings more than 20 years of experience in technology, healthcare, recruitment, and business management to the role, with a focus on building a more accessible workforce and economy, and empowering individuals and communities to thrive.
