COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Software and services company Signet Accel announced today that Brenda Berry joined the company as Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. With more than three decades in both business and behavioral healthcare, Berry will lead Signet Accel in expanding its portfolio of national and international clients and further establishing its brand as a leader in healthcare technology and data integration.
“Signet Accel is a rarity in our industry,” Berry said. “We’re ensuring that a client’s entirety of data is ready for the task and we’re alleviating the pain points that accompany data integration. I'm incredibly passionate about two things in my career: Putting the customer first and the role of technology in advancing health—so joining this company is an incredible opportunity.”
Berry’s experience includes national leadership positions with Netsmart and The Echo Group. Most recently, she was a senior sales executive at Core Solutions, Inc.
“Simply put, Brenda is the rare sales executive who listens far more than she talks,” said Signet Accel CEO John Raden. “She’s incredibly approachable and solutions-oriented, and her commitment to understanding the needs of the client is genuine. She’s the ideal person to deliver Avec to our industry.”
Avec®, a federated data integration platform, is the company’s flagship product. Avec connects disparate databases across healthcare verticals, allowing researchers to identify patterns and trends over a large patient population and offering comprehensive insight into both research and patient treatment. Robust repositories of connected data are a key resource in realizing the promise of precision medicine, a research effort aimed at improving health and treating disease by accounting for patients’ individual differences.
“It’s easy to ignore the human face of data integration, but Signet Accel sees it as the driving force behind its work,” Berry said. “I’m grateful to be joining this expanding team of professionals and I’m excited to make an immediate impact.”
With its expanding client base and deepening client engagements, Signet Accel is also doubling its physical footprint to accommodate a 60 percent increase in staff in 2017
