Shawn DeRemer MD

President, Founder

Ever wonder why AANW has such a vibrant culture of customer service excellence? It all starts with Dr. Shawn DeRemer. He’s the charismatic leader, the hard-working, passionate champion people want to follow. He grew up with a “work hard, play hard” mentality, values which have helped him build an organization that’s less about corporate rhetoric and more about the AANW family. His entrepreneurial spirit guides AANW as it grows and expands from a powerful Pacific Northwest anesthesia force into a solid national presence.

Gregg White, MS, CRNA

CEO, Co-Founder

Before he entered the anesthesia field, Gregg White was a successful entrepreneur. His experience as a hands-on leader and a savvy businessman gives him a unique perspective of medicine and the bottom line. He began his career in anesthesia as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist in a busy trauma center where, over the course of several years, he’ll tell you he learned the business end of anesthesia in “the school of hard knocks.” Growing up on a horse ranch in Western Oregon, he’s still an avid outdoorsman. He says he’s a fisherman who loves math, running, and spending time on the golf course. He’s busy saving, so his kids will have a college education but jokes, “As soon as they are all educated, I’m going fishing!”
