Today Change Healthcare announced that August Calhoun will join the company as EVP & President, Sales and Operations, effective April 9th. August will lead enterprise sales and account management, which supports the Software & Analytics and Network Solutions businesses, as well as our operations teams. He will report to President & CEO Neil de Crescenzo as part of the Executive Leadership Team.
August brings more than 20 years of healthcare software and services expertise, joining Change Healthcare from Siemens, where he was SVP and general manager (GM) of Services. In that role, August was responsible for Siemens’ North American services portfolio–including strategy, sales, operations and lifecycle management–with more than 3,000 consultants and service professionals. While there, he led the transformation of the North American services organization by developing a long-term growth strategy; and using data and analytics to deliver services, insights, and value more effectively to customers.
Prior to Siemens, August held increasingly senior leadership positions at a variety of dynamic organizations, where he demonstrated a strong track record of focusing on customers and business outcomes. He progressed from sales roles at IBM to national sales roles at Dell, and then led one of Dell’s largest industry verticals. He later served as SVP and GM for the $250 million Provider Solutions business at Truven Health Analytics.
“This role is an important investment in the growth, innovation, and service capabilities that we bring to our customers, and we are excited to have August join our team,” said de Crescenzo. “His track record speaks for itself, and we look forward to his leadership as we work side-by-side with our customers to help them accelerate their journeys toward value-based healthcare.”
