LIVINGSTON, MT – July 26th, 2023 – Recognizing professionals making major contributions to the world of work early on in their careers, Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) announced its 40 Under 40 List for its seventh year. Wilderness Medical Staffing’s co-CEO, Ethan McWilliams, was named to the list for his leadership and contributions to the healthcare staffing industry.
SIA publishes this annual list to identify and honor staffing industry leaders of today and tomorrow. The 2023 class has met with several unique challenges ranging from economical to geopolitical to technological. What sets this group of 40 Under 40 honorees apart is how they faced those global challenges – with agility, self-motivation and determination.
“In a time of great challenge and great opportunity, it’s exciting to honor the leaders recognized in this year’s 40 under 40 class,” said SIA President Barry Asin. “Congratulations to our 2023 honorees for pushing forward undeterred and bringing a new generation of leadership to the industry.”
McWilliams leads locum tenens staffing agency, Wilderness Medical Staffing, along with his brother and co-CEO, Noah McWilliams. Growing up in rural communities in Alaska and Montana, Ethan McWilliams originally set out to pursue law, with a degree from Notre Dame, and subsequently serving as an attorney for the United States Army and State of Washington. He ended up back at his rural beginnings, finding purpose and fulfillment in serving rural and remote communities through healthcare as a leader of WMS.
In recognition of the award, McWilliams shares, “I am very honored and humbled to represent the Wilderness Medical Staffing team in receiving a place on SIA’s 40 Under 40 List. I’ve learned so much from working with a team of skilled professionals in the staffing industry, and remain grateful to serve alongside them. It’s very meaningful to get to do the work we do, knowing we’re making a difference in the lives of these small communities and villages.”
“The 2023 class of 40 Under 40 honorees prove that the trials you face can make you stronger, better, and more driven than ever,” Asin said. “With that kind of attitude from staffing leaders of tomorrow, the industry’s future looks incredibly bright.”
