Truveris, Inc. is pleased to announce that Anthony J. Barrett has joined the company as Vice President of Sales, Central Region.
Mr. Barrett joins Truveris with over 33 years of achieving growth and leading strategic business development, sales, and clinical teams. Experienced in healthcare and IT, Mr. Barrett worked at Healthways, Prime Therapeutics, Walgreens, Apple, and Xerox. During his Walgreens tenure he served as SVP of Walgreens Health Initiatives (PBM), leading a team developing breakthrough industry solutions and fully-transparent contracting for rebates and networks.
Prior to Walgreens, Anthony spent 17 years with Apple in enterprise divisional leadership roles, managing sales and business development teams. With Apple leading the global transition from analog to digital communications solutions, Anthony’s team created new channels of advocacy with partners that allowed Apple to scale rapidly.
Mr. Barrett stated, “I'm excited to join Truveris because we share a common passion around transparency and simplifying pharmacy benefit complexities with technology. After 17 years at Apple and 7 years at Walgreens in leadership roles, I know great innovation when I see it. Truveris’ domain expertise combined with its SaaS technology is truly without equal."
Truveris CEO Bryan Birch stated, “Anthony’s combined experience in the technology and pharmacy industries is a perfect fit for Truveris. Lazard has recognized us in their 2013 What’s Next: It’s Private report as one of only two companies to watch in the Managed Care and Health Care IT industries. Anthony’s position at Truveris will help expand our capabilities and accelerate our product distribution."
At Truveris, Anthony will apply a similar channel strategy to partner with brokers, TPAs, and consultants as he did at Apple; empowering advisers to deliver new and differentiated services to their clients.
