ATI Physical Therapy (ATI) celebrated eight individuals recently as the inaugural recipients of its Leader of the Year awards at its annual Operations meeting.

ATI’s Leader of the Year awards were created to celebrate exceptional leaders at the clinic director and district director level who demonstrated hard work, perseverance and dedication to their patients and fellow team members.

In their inaugural year, awards were given to eight team members, including one clinic director from each of ATI’s seven regions across the United States and one district director. Winners were selected based on three criteria: exceeding business and productivity goals; demonstrating and living out ATI’s mission and values; and supporting others to succeed.

District Director Leader of the Year

Donnette “Missy” Brass was awarded the winner of the District Director Leader of the Year award. Brass joined ATI as a physical therapist in 2008 and has since held numerous leadership roles with ATI for nearly a decade. As district director overseeing 19 clinics and 80 team members in ATI’s Illinois region, Brass led her team to post higher year-over-year results per visit in 2020 despite the impact of the pandemic. In addition, her district’s engagement score results were 12% above the organization’s national average.

Clinic Director Leader of the Year

The following individuals received ATI’s Clinic Director Leader of the Year awards: 

  • Jonathan Banz, Northeast Region
  • Richie Daniel, South Region
  • Jonathan Erhardt, Northwest Region
  • Alex Everett, Central Region
  • Wade Harrell, Southeast Region
  • Mirette Mikhail, Illinois Region
  • Dallas Reynolds, Southwest Region

“Looking back on 2020, it’s clear that everything our organization was able to accomplish wouldn’t have been possible without the leadership demonstrated by these award nominees and recipients. On behalf of the entire ATI leadership team, I’d like to extend my congratulations – and my thanks – to all of our Leader of the Year nominees and recipients for this well-deserved recognition and for making ATI an incredible place to work.”
