The AVMA PLIT, a group that assists members of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) with malpractice insurance and other business-related protections, has announced Janet Donlin, DVM, as chief executive officer.

Donlin took over the position April 1 from Rodney Johnson, DVM, who will retire this summer. "Given Dr. Donlin's extensive management and leadership experience in the veterinary profession and at AVMA, she will provide the strategic focus we are seeking," said PLIT chairman R.C. Ebert, DVM, in a prepared statement. "We are excited to have her join us." Donlin will be based at PLIT headquarters in Chicago.

Most recently, Donlin was chief veterinary officer at Hill's Pet Nutrition in Topeka, Kan., where she managed global veterinary teams and helped develop products for the veterinary profession.

Donlin graduated from the University of Minnesota with a doctorate of veterinary medicine and a bachelor's in medical technology. She began her career in a mixed animal practice, then taught at the University of Minnesota, and has served in various roles in organized veterinarymedicine as well.
