Dr. James W. Lloyd, dean of the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, has been chosen to receive the 2018 Distinguished Life Member Award from a national veterinary business group.

Lloyd received the award July 13 from VetPartners, a nonprofit association of veterinary business specialists, during the group’s biannual meeting, held this year at the Westin Denver Downtown in Denver. Lloyd is one of only 13 elite members to have received the honor, which VetPartners bestows annually in recognition of noteworthy and outstanding contributions to the practice of veterinary business consulting.

A Michigan native, Lloyd became dean of the UF College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. He received his D.V.M. and Ph.D. degrees from Michigan State University and spent most of his career prior to coming to UF as a member of the faculty and in administration at the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine.

Known as a key thought leader in the area of animal health economics, Lloyd has also worked as an organizational development consultant, emphasizing strategic planning and leadership development with inclusion as a core element. Lloyd led the National Commission on Veterinary Economic Issues working group on Enhancing the Skills, Knowledge, Aptitude and Attitude of Veterinarians from 2000-2009.  He works to progressively apply the disciplines of economics, management and business to the veterinary medical profession through research, teaching and service/administration.

VetPartners was established in 2002 and now has 270 members in more than 10 professional categories of expertise pertaining to veterinary practice management. The group’s mission includes providing a community of networking, collaboration and integrity to serve its members for the good of the veterinary medical profession.
