"His expertise of the healthcare services industry combined with his deep understanding of our business will lead to a seamless transition as he joins our board."

Simpson added, "David Wenstrup has been a key advisor and member of our board of directors. We appreciate David's valuable insight and counsel through the years."

Prior to joining Warburg Pincus, Tsai worked at AEA Investors Inc. and McKinsey & Company. Tsai is currently a director of Genoa Healthcare Group and Universal Health Care Group. He holds a BA in Chemistry, Economics and Asian Studies from Williams College and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
