G2X TAKE: Continuing their aggressive hiring spree, this CIO-SP3 SB and CMS SPARC Prime has recruited yet another senior executive to support growth, this time picking up 2018 FedHealthIT100 awardee, Steve Erd to lead Civilian Health business development.
When any firm, large or small, makes repeated big investments we take note, but the soon-to-be addition of Steve is just the latest in a string of hires Unissant has made of late, to include adding industry veteran Ken Bonner this past fall as their new EVP in charge of Federal Growth, Macon Hardy as VP of Business Development late last year, and Raju Prasannappa as CTO just last month. We said it before and we will say it again – key hires do not guarantee success, but they do signify intent and, while many Federal Health firms are sitting on the sidelines waiting for the dust to settle with this new Administration, this group is positioning itself and is worth keeping an eye on.
