Michael Lamia earned his BS in Management from the University of South Florida. After graduation, Michael began his career as computer engineer in 1981. He continued in the field through 1996, eventually rising to the level of Director of MIS for several large corporations in Florida. It was in his last position, at a small manufacturing company, that Michael was first introduced to the staffing industry.

In 2001, Michael started All Source Recruiting Group, Inc. a recruiting company focused on the placement of non-technical and non-medical professionals. Recognizing the overwhelming demand for healthcare staff, Michael along with his wife Patricia, founded MedSource Group in 2003. In 2004, the focus for MedSource Group shifted toward Allied Healthcare professionals exclusively. Later in 2008, the company re-branded and became Ardor Health Solutions.
Today, Ardor Health Solutions occupies more than 10,000 square feet of office space in Coral Springs, Florida and employees over 300. Our growth plan for 2014 includes increasing our total employee base, both internally and externally to 400.
