Given his impressive track record of success, he is someone we believe will play a vital role in creating significant new revenue growth opportunities for our medical centers of excellence. I look forward to closely collaborating with Ron to best leverage the depth and breadth of his notable expertise in the healthcare industry to build on the growing regional prominence of our practices," noted Romandetti.

Kris Jones, VP of Medical Operations, added, "Because our growth has been strategic and carefully calculated over the past four years, we dedicated a great deal of time to identify and actively recruit the right candidate for this position. Ron's expertise, coupled with his dedication to patient-centric care, will make him a valuable contributor to the future success of our organization."

Bringing FCMG over two decades of proven experience in project management, business development, marketing and corporate growth strategy, Esteban previously served as a senior executive at Orlando Orthopaedic Center ("OOC"), one of Central Florida's largest specialty orthopaedic group practices.

From 2004 through 2008, he pioneered and successfully developed a new sports medicine and community outreach program for OOC while serving as the practice's Sports Medicine Outreach Coordinator and Marketing Director. From 2000 through 2003, Esteban was an assistant athletic trainer and lecturer at Virginia Tech, during which time he lectured undergraduates and graduate students on Sports Medicine; and managed the prevention, abatement and rehabilitation of athletic injuries to the university's NCAA Division I athletes. He began his professional healthcare career in 1999 as Program Manager of Orthopaedics and Community Health Services at Florida Hospital Celebration Health in Central Florida.

Esteban earned both Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science degrees in Education from Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University (Virginia Tech), as well as a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Central Florida.
