Arthur Cooper is the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Fidelis Partners, THMED Executive Search, and Allied Staffing Network. Arthur has developed a reputation as a results-driven leader in the healthcare recruitment industry. He also currently serves as President, Managing Partner and Board Member at the parent company of THMED, LLC.
With nearly two decades of experience in the staffing industry, Mr. Cooper is recognized for his business acumen, emotional intelligence, and personal integrity. These qualities have helped him parlay his background to become a driving force in healthcare recruitment and propelled the THMED companies to become healthcare industry leaders. His dedication and leadership led to the startup achieving over $40 million in sales and employing close to 200 workers in less than nine years. In 2016 and 2017, THMED was recognized by Inc. Magazine’s 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies and as one of the Best Places to Work in North Texas by the Dallas Business Journal.
Despite his executive position, Mr. Cooper believes in remaining active in the daily business operations of THMED companies. He’s as equally interested in achieving and refining THMED’s overall vision and company culture as he is in recruiting and mentoring new talent. He also focuses on consistently building new relationships with clients and potential partners.
Mr. Cooper has repeatedly demonstrated his commitment to serving his community. As a Marine, he served in both Desert Shield and Desert Storm. He also earned two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals during his four years of service. Mr. Cooper also maintains an active membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Now, that same sense of obligation to the wider community has led him to become a mentor with the Health Wildcatters, so he can provide his expertise to fledgling startups in the health industry.
Mr. Cooper resides in Lucas, TX with his wife of almost two decades and their four children who have Learning Differences. Outside of work, Mr. Cooper enjoys playing golf, coaching his children’s sports teams, and spending time with his family.
