Early in his career, Park worked as a management consultant with Deloitte Consulting in the Strategic Healthcare Practice working with clients including hospital systems and three of the largest national health plans.
“With my background in healthcare consumerism, I’ve been familiar with the Alegeus organization since its early days as MBI and Metavante,” said Park. “It’s clear that Alegeus is well-positioned for growth. With its industry-leading technology platform, strong leadership team, and investors who understand the potential opportunities – it was an easy decision to join the Alegeus team.”
Joining Park is Matt Francis, who will assume responsibility for both sales and client relationship management as Chief Sales Officer at Alegeus.
