The Joint Corp. (NASDAQ: JYNT), a national healthcare franchisor of chiropractic clinics, announced it has hired a new Chief Financial Officer and elected two new board members.
The Joint’s new CFO is Francis T. Joyce, CPA. Joyce was formerly the Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer for Mistras Group Inc. He started his career with KPMG in New York.
New board member William “Bill” Fields is a retail industry veteran who began his 25-year career with Wal-Mart as a store manager. Wal-Mart Founder Sam Walton later handpicked Fields to be his assistant. Fields went on to hold numerous senior executive positions. He left Wal-Mart in 1996 as President and Chief Executive Officer of Wal-Mart Stores Division.
“I decided to join The Joint Corp.’s board because I was impressed by the caliber of the management team,” Fields said. “John Richards (CEO) and David Orwasher (President/COO) both have impressive retail service pedigrees that include
helping catapult Starbucks’ sales.
I believe The Joint’s revolutionary patient-centric approach, coupled with its commitment to affordability and convenience, makes it a disruptive force in the industry.”
The Joint’s other new board member is Ron DaVella, a retired audit partner from Deloitte, where he worked for 34 years.
