SAN FRANCISCO, CA – July 20, 2017 – SpendVu, a leading healthcare supply chain software provider, announced today that Ken Castinado has joined the company as the Vice President of Sales. In this role, Castinado will be responsible for all direct sales and reseller functions, as well as creating strategic initiatives to grow customer accounts and partner relationships.
Castinado brings with him a deep understanding of the problems that healthcare executives face in supply chain management. He has established himself as a leader in pioneering methodologies that emphasize partnering with delivery networks to better understand their unique organizational challenges. This emphasis on partnership directly aligns him with SpendVu’s mission to provide delivery networks with software that digitally transforms their supply chain operations.
Castinado has over 29 years of experience in healthcare sales and operations as well as 26 years of service as a U.S. Army Reserve Medical Officer. His diverse background includes supply chain management, medical forms, pharmaceutical, and healthcare IT before joining Vizient as a Director of Non-Acute Services. One of his strengths is his strong situational leadership skills.
“I’ve been deeply involved with supply chain for many years both in the corporate world and in the military. I’m excited to join a company that is helping healthcare supply chain make the leap to digital transformation. The supply chain professionals in the hospitals are ready and are feeling the need for digital transformation; they are being asked daily to accomplish more with less resources, and SaaS products like SpendVu’s will be a key component of that future success,” said Ken Castinado.
“Ken brings a new perspective on solving the complex issues that healthcare supply chain professionals face today. With the first ripples of Value Based Reimbursements being seen and with the need to reduce total cost of care, providers must run a lean, efficient supply chain. Every dollar saved from an efficient supply chain goes directly to the bottom line,” said Michael Concannon, CEO and Co-Founder of SpendVu. “We are incredibly excited to welcome Ken to the team and leverage his supply chain expertise to keep innovating and suppling our clients with the best possible technology.”
