In the past two years, Fortus Healthcare Resources has been placed on the Inc. 5000,
an annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States compiled by Inc. Magazine.
For an Insights column, “My Best Advice” – Wisdom from Inc. 5000 Leaders, Collaborative Legacy Partners asked the founders, CEOs, and presidents of current and former Inc. 5000 companies what it took to build the fastest growing companies in the U.S.
Fortus CEO Michael Maurizio provided his insights:
“I strongly believe that diversification is the key to business success. I started out 20 years ago as a one-desk dialysis staffing firm. Over time, Fortus Healthcare Resources has enhanced its focus and specialties to include recruitment and placement of healthcare professionals in a variety of medical disciplines, as well as providing a wide range of clinical practice consulting and business development services. We also expanded our service area with the opening of an International Division in Germany a few years ago.
“From day one, I was constantly exploring different areas of business. Doing so is essential to effectively respond to the ever-changing global marketplace, particularly in healthcare. It also allows Fortus to provide the best possible services to existing healthcare clients and candidates, and attract new business relationships. Quite frankly, some of my ideas never came to fruition and others weren’t successful. However, I have a solid track record of achievement that would not have been possible without the innovation that is only possible when diversifying and taking some chances.”
