Kampbell is president of Rehabilitation Resource Solutions. His term as president of NASSCO will end at the associations 2010 annual meeting in February. Taking over as president will be Brad Dutruch, vice president of business development, Compliance EnviroSystems.


Search for New Executive Director

Looking ahead, NASSCO is seeking to fill the position of executive director to replace Irv Gemora, who plans to retire by the February 2011 annual meeting.

"As much as I have enjoyed my eight years as executive director and as much as I take pride in what we have accomplished, it is time to enter another phase of my life," said Gemora. "That decision brings me to one of the most important jobs I have undertaken for NASSCO which is finding a replacement who has the vision, the industry knowledge, the skill set and the disposition to lead NASSCO into its very bright future. Ed Kampbell, Brad Dutruch and myself comprise the search committee who will screen the applications down to the final three for presentation to the board of directors."

Gemora said that names and resume information of all applicants will be kept strictly confidential throughout the process of hiring the new executive director.
