Unissant recruits Steve Erd to serve as SVP for FedCiv Health BD


“Steve Erd, a seasoned business development professional and industry veteran in Federal Health”, will join Unissant April 30th as the Sr. Vice President, FedCiv Health Business Development (BD). “A BD leader specializing in government health policy and programs, Mr. Erd brings extensive Federal Health experience to the company.”

“Mr. Erd has spent two decades in public service and supporting government programs through other leading companies, including Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin, and comes to Unissant following five years as Director, Government Health Solutions at LexisNexis, supporting the Company’s growth in the Federal Health space. He has leveraged his government, policy, and industry experience to significantly grow company businesses, with clear understanding of government customers’ needs addressed by innovative, thoughtful solutions. Throughout his business development career, Mr. Erd has provided account management and growth activities focused on responsive, innovative solutions for the Departments of Health and Human Services, Veterans Affairs, and Military Health. Mr. Erd is also a Past President of the HIMSS NCA Chapter and current Board Member, a member of the HIMSS Public Policy Committee, a 2017 AFCEA President’s Awardee, and a 2018 FedHealthIT 100 awardee.” Source: Unissant

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.
