Leadership Team

One good way to judge a veterinary network is by the individuals who lead it. In the case of PetVet Care Centers, we are fortunate to have the services of renowned pet care executives who provide us with unrivaled experience and expertise as they guide our network through accelerated growth.

Gino has extensive leadership experience in the pet care industry, and founded PetVet Care Centers in 2012. He is the consummate expert at putting together hospital acquisitions that provide maximum benefits to both sellers and buyers — every time.

How Gino Supports Our Hospitals:

  • Sets the standard of veterinary quality that guides our network
  • Leads the acquisition team
  • Accurately appraises hospitals and properly compensates sellers

  • "For most veterinarians, selling their practice is about much more than the money. That’s why we treat every seller as an individual, and really listen to what matters to them."
