COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Feb. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NightHawk Radiology Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: NHWK), the leading provider of radiology services to radiology groups across the United States, today announced that Tim Mayleben, NightHawk's President and Chief Operating Officer, will be leaving the Company for personal reasons. Mayleben will remain with NightHawk in an operating capacity through the end of February and is expected to resign from the board of directors as well. The Company is actively recruiting a new chief operating officer. During the search period, Jon Berger will serve as interim Chief Operating Officer, in addition to his current role as Senior Vice President of Corporate Development and Strategy. Berger is a logical choice for this role given his many years of experience in the radiology industry and as co-founder of NightHawk.
"Tim has been with NightHawk as a member of our Board of Directors since 2005 and joined us last year as President and Chief Operating Officer, during a period of rapid growth in the Company's history," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Paul Berger. "Tim helped NightHawk close several strategic acquisitions, including Teleradiology Diagnostic Service, The Radlinx Group, and Midwest Physician Services, while also helping to strengthen the company's infrastructure to position it for future growth."
"It has been my pleasure to serve as NightHawk's President and Chief Operating Officer during this time, but I also believe it is the right time for me to make a change," said Mayleben. "I want to thank my NightHawk colleagues around the world for their hard work and my fellow members of the Board for their support during this year of growth and transition."
