American Medical Imaging taps Jim Spearman as President & CEO

Upon the announcement of Steve Cannon’s retirement as president & CEO of American Medical Imaging (AMI), the company engaged in a careful search for the right successor, a leader with the vision and experience to guide the organization to new successes, both regionally and nationally.

“It is with great pleasure that we announce that Jim Spearman has joined AMI as president and CEO,” a news release states.

“Jim is a seasoned leader in diagnostic imaging, with decades of experience in operations, leadership, quality, corporate governance, M&A, and commercial growth. His career in Imaging began after a decade in the industrial chemicals and coatings industries when he started at GE Healthcare in 2001. In 2012 he joined private equity backed Unisyn Medical Technologies prior to an asset sale of its ultrasound probe division to GE Healthcare in 2013. He then rebranded and relocated Unisyn’s service division from Denver to Chicago under the new name Consensys Imaging Service. Jim served as Consensys’ President & CEO until its acquisition by Merry X-Ray in 2017. After several years in the Biopharma space, we are pleased to welcome him back to diagnostic imaging,” the release adds.

“We are excited to have Jim lead AMI into its next phase of growth after having acquired seven businesses between 2020 and 2021 to form AMI”, said Joe Randolph – president and CEO of The Innovation Institute, LLC, the Parent Company of AMI. “With core competence in integrations post-close, we look forward to Jim’s leadership in not only smoothing-out all current internal initiatives but also in accelerating a host of other improvements and growth initiatives.”

“It’s truly an honor to return to an industry with significant growth opportunity, while also creating long-term value for customers in need,” said Jim Spearman. “Industry consolidation has left the door wide-open for AMI’s vast new & used imaging equipment, PACS, field service, and accessories offerings, along with value-added imaging solutions of all kinds, including equipment relocations and upgrades.”
