In a span of only three days, telehealth services provider Caregility announced two new positions and appointments: a new chief product and engineering officer and a new chief revenue officer.
Kedar Ganta will take on the role of chief product and engineering officer, while Paul Oliver was appointed chief revenue officer, the Eatontown-based company announced March 21 and March 23, respectively.
The newly created positions come at a time of “incredible growth in adoption” of virtual care, said Caregility President and Chief Operating Officer Mike Brandofino.
In November 2022, CEO Ron Gaboury told NJBIZ that the company has “seen tremendous and sustained interest in telehealth services in all care settings, from virtual patient observation in the hospital to remote patient monitoring in the home.”
This growth can be attributed to advances in technology, a way to battle rising health care costs and pressures on health care teams, not to mention the role the pandemic played in the acceptance of telehealth, among other reasons.
In his new role, Ganta is responsible for Caregility software products, managing product lifecycle and strategy, technical vision and product roadmap for the Caregility Cloud platform. He described his new employer as “a trailblazer in developing clinically driven virtual care solutions.”
Bringing 20 years of experience in enterprise-scale and cloud-native applications to the company, Ganta previously held leadership positions at Cisco Systems, athenahealth, GE Healthcare and Microsoft. Having served on several industry projects and guilds, Ganta earned his MBA from Columbia Business School.
“The deep expertise that Kedar brings to this new role will help us continue to drive initiatives and development efforts to keep pace with the incredible growth in adoption we are seeing across existing and new customers,” Brandofino said in a statement.
As for Caregility’s new chief revenue officer, Oliver will oversee global sales efforts and will focus on strategic growth opportunities.
Oliver has more than 25 years of software sales and leadership experience in the U.S. and abroad. He also comes to Caregility from Cisco Systems, where he most recently served as operations director for the Global Enterprise Collaboration Platform team.
“The addition of Paul to the Caregility team reflects our investment in long-term growth at an exciting new stage in our company’s evolution,” Gaboury said. “Virtual care is fueling care model transformation at a rapid clip and Paul’s experience with enterprise software solutions and his confidence and belief in our mission to empower patients and providers will be invaluable as we seek to support the short and long-term success of health systems.”
Oliver said he was “thrilled” to join the company and help it build on its momentum.l
