Jerry Reid, Ph.D. and CEO of ARRT, will retire on Dec. 31, 2022, after having served ARRT for four decades. His retirement will follow the celebration of ARRT’s 100th anniversary, which will include an open house at ARRT headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota; celebratory stories in ARRT communications materials; and social media activities recognizing R.T.s as essential health care workers committed to quality, safety, and stellar patient experiences.

“The Board of Trustees is committed to selecting a CEO who will carry on ARRT’s long tradition of offering high-quality certification and registration,” said ARRT President of the Board Paul Larson, M.D., FACR. “One of a Board’s most important duties is to select a CEO to run day-to-day operations and to help the Board set the organization’s strategic direction. Having a long lead time allows us to take a deliberate and systematic approach to preparing for a smooth transition and avoiding disruption of ARRT’s important work.”

The ARRT Board selected Tuft and Associates, in partnership with Association Strategies, Inc., to work with ARRT to develop the job profile, conduct the national search, vet candidates, and coordinate interviews.
