Medical Staffing Network Healthcare, LLC (MSN), one of the nation’s largest healthcare workforce solutions companies, today announced the appointment of Dr. Brian Poplin, FACHE, as President and Chief Executive Officer, effective August 1st, 2013.

Joining MSN in April 2013 as President and COO, Dr. Poplin succeeds Bob Bunker as Chief Executive Officer. Bunker will remain active as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
