Mark Clermont, former president of recently acquired Provant Health, will take on the former position, while Dr. Carl Schramm, a professor at Syracuse University and former president of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, will hold the latter.

“Mark and Carl both bring to Lumeon a deep understanding not only of U.S. healthcare but also extraordinary business experience,” said Robbie Hughes, founder, and CEO of Lumeon. “As the company continues to build on its recent momentum since entering the U.S. market, their expertise and leadership will help drive further growth. The addition of these two seasoned authorities in the industry demonstrates what an exciting time this is for Lumeon.”

“We are excited to add Beth and Julie into these new leadership roles,” Devin Gross, CEO of SonarMD, said in a statement. “They both will help harness the current energy at SonarMD into further growth and expansion.”

Blink Health’s drug discount app will soon be supported by Eytan Seidman, its new head of product. Seidman comes from Microsoft, Compass and TripAdvisor, where he spearheaded product development and engineering team expansion.

“Sue brings the rare combination of strong vertical SaaS sales and deep expertise in HR to League at a time when we are in accelerated growth mode,” Mike Serbinis, founder and CEO of League, said in a statement. “The level of complexity enterprise HR leaders are asked to navigate requires a partner that truly understands every facet of this often overwhelming industry.

"We are thrilled to welcome Mitch to the team and see him as instrumental as we extend telehealth and digital care to more broadly serve government agencies and the public sector at large.”
