Tampa, Fla., August 27, 2019 – April Neumann, Senior Vice President at Ultimate Medical Academy, is being recognized as one of the top young professionals in the Tampa Bay area.
In Neumann’s more than eight years at UMA, she has been promoted to new roles with increasing levels of influence. She is responsible for the strategy and oversight of UMA’s Career Services and Corporate Alliance functions. She oversees a team of more than 400 Career Services Advisors that places thousands of graduates in their field of study each year across the country.
Her demonstrated ability to excel in the face of new challenges is just one reason she is being recognized as one of the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s 40 Under 40. There were more than 600 nominations and a record 300 submissions before the field was trimmed to 40 professionals.
“I am truly honored to receive this recognition and am proud of the accomplishments that I and my team have achieved,” Neumann said. “I have always had a passion for education and enjoy making a difference in the lives of the students and communities that UMA serves.”
Under Neumann’s leadership, UMA has developed a successful externship program where students can get hands-on learning and experience. The portfolio for UMA’s Pharmacy Technician externships includes more than 22,000 sites for UMA graduates across the country.
Additionally, Neumann oversees the career placement of thousands of graduates with small physicians’ offices, regional healthcare employers and healthcare-focused Fortune 500 companies nationwide.
Neumann sits on the Greater Tampa Bay Chamber Education Committee.
“April is a dynamic leader whose tireless work as an advocate for our students and employees is evident to everyone who sees her in action,” Thomas Rametta, UMA’s Interim President and Chief Financial Officer, said. “We are extremely excited that she is being recognized for the talents and determination that we see and benefit from on a daily basis.”
The honorees will be recognized at a special awards celebration on Oct. 18 at Armature Works and profiled in a special section of the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
