“I am honored and excited to begin this next chapter with Health Advances,” said Greg “especially given the unique opportunity to work with such a broad range of clients across healthcare technology sectors and at different stages of maturity — from startups to the largest companies in the world. We are often asked to help our clients address their most difficult questions, and in the quickly growing areas of digital and connected health, there are no shortage of those.”

Greg built a Strategic Marketing team after an initial round of growth equity and drove company-wide business planning, performance improvement and measurement programs as the Strategic Sales Operations leader. Earlier in his tenure, he was the product director for the core analytics platform and a principal consultant in Arcadia’s legacy consulting business. While at Arcadia, Greg served as a subject matter expert to the Office of the National Coordinator for HIT on health information exchange (HIE) under the federal HIE, Regional Extension Center, and Beacon Community grant programs.
