Tony has dedicated over 15 years to the healthcare and med-tech industry. He is the President and CEO of Medicomp, Inc., a telehealth company focused on diagnostic cardiology that services over 150,000 patients per year.
Tony is passionate about his work, the team, and what’s on the horizon for Medicomp. A critical part of Tony’s role, as he explains, is “trying to see around corners,” which is bigger than simply looking at functional reality. Rather, it’s about looking for what you are missing – what’s in the blind spot – the things that can screw you up or sometimes cause a new business opportunity to open up.
Prior to his current role with Medicomp, Tony was the VP of Marketing and Strategy for the Telemedicine Division of United Therapeutics Corporation. While there, he was a key contributor to the business achieving 30 percent year-on-year annual revenue and profit growth. At the time, Tony became the youngest senior manager in United Therapeutics history.
Tony earned his MBA with a health care management concentration from The Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. He received his Bachelor of Science in applied Economics and Management from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.
