WellNet Healthcare Names Chris Kaiser and Jay Thompson Sales Executives
Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) June 16, 2009 -- WellNet Healthcare, a healthcare technology company that enables companies to better manage their healthcare costs by analyzing their benefit programs to understand why costs are rising, today announced the appointment of Chris Kaiser as sales executive for the Mid-Atlantic territory and Jay Thompson as sales executive for the Northeast territory.
In this capacity, Kaiser and Thompson will be responsible for selling Healthcare Performance Management software to companies that provide and pay for employee health benefits.
"With the national focus on healthcare reform, we are at an exciting point in our company's growth. For years we have been helping our customers manage their benefits costs and programs like any other corporate expense by taking the mystery out of healthcare costs," said Keith Lemer, president of WellNet. "Chris and Jay's proven experience in sales and marketing will be an asset to the company at this critical time."
Prior to joining WellNet, Kaiser spent time in a territory sales role with Vocus Inc. Previously, he was with the Corporate Executive Board in Arlington, VA, with the specific responsibility of expanding the technology practice into the mid-market arena. Kaiser received his B.A. in economics, with honors, at Metropolitan State College of Denver.
Thompson, most recently, worked for the Corporate Executive Board as a research consultant. While at the Corporate Executive Board, he rotated through several parts of the company as part of a management development program and eventually found a home in the sales force. Prior to graduate school, Thompson worked in the public sector and for the CEO of a large insurance company as a cost management analyst. He holds bachelors degrees in finance and accounting from the University of Oklahoma and a Masters degree in International Relations from the University of Denver.
WellNet Healthcare enables companies to better manage their healthcare costs by analyzing their benefit programs to understand why costs are rising. Health benefits are usually the second or third biggest line item in a corporate budget, yet it is the only expense that CEOs and CFOs do not have visibility into. WellNet works with the C-suite to analyze their benefits and help them understand why costs are rising and then put in plans to manage that cost. WellNet's technology subsidiary, Healthcare Interactive, provides a platform for the C-suite to view and manage healthcare costs in a dashboard format. In the summer of 2009, the company will launch a portal for employees to have a single view of their healthcare records and expenses as well as targeted news and information.
