Comings & Goings: Doximity Adds Two New VPs to Executive Team

Doximity, the nation's largest professional network for doctors, has hired two new VPs to continue its path of growth. The new members of the company's executive team are Emily Peters and Peter Alperin.

Previously the vice president of marketing communications at Practice Fusion, Peters has been appointed the vice president of marketing communications at Doximity. She will be responsible for expanding the company's brand and research work through leading media relations, trend research and marketing.

Alperin, former vice president of medicine and product at Archimedes, will take on the newly created role of vice president and general manager of connectivity solutions. In that position he will be lead the growth of HIPAA-compliant physician messaging services at Doximity.

Both Peters and Alperin have proven track records.

While at Practice Fusion, Peters oversaw the electronic health record company's growth to 75 million patients and $150 million in funding over four years. She brings over a decade of experience in communications leadership among startup organizations to her new role at Doximity and is considered an expert in the fields of healthcare marketing, data privacy and security, and strategic partnerships.

Alperin previously led Archimedes' product team on various projects and throughout his 17 year medical career held numerous roles including director of medical informatics at Brown & Toland Medical Group and product manager at Epocrates. He currently practices in the emergency room at the San Francisco Veteran's Affairs Medical Center.

“Emily is a true health tech communications all-star, and as our network and visibility grow, we’re fortunate to add her to our team,” Jeff Tangney, CEO and founder of Doximity, said in a statement. “As both a practicing physician and two-time internet exec, Pete is uniquely qualified to lead our connectivity team; making it easier for physicians to collaborate on tough cases, patient referrals, and their careers.”

Since launching in 2011, Doximity has experienced much success. Earlier in the year the company doubled its Silicon Valley office space and obtained a $54 million Series C funding round. Doximity expects to exceed 50 percent of U.S. physicians as members of its network by fall.
