Irvine, CA, United States, 2012/03/02 - SK&A promotes Albert Chang, formerly Senior Director, Operations, to Managing Director, SK&A. and Mike Green, formerly Director, OneKey Operations, to Senior Director, OneKey Business Development.
SK&A, A Cegedim Company, a leading provider of healthcare information solutions and research, today announced the promotion of two executives to support corporate-growth initiatives. Albert Chang, formerly Senior Director, Operations, was promoted to Managing Director, SK&A. Mike Green, formerly Director, OneKey Operations, was promoted to Senior Director, OneKey Business Development.
“Since his arrival at SK&A in November 2008, Mr. Chang has been instrumental in managing the SK&A operation, including the Research Center, customer support, fulfillment, corporate IT and quality assurance,” said Dave Escalante, Vice President & General Manager, SK&A and OneKey. “Moreover, beginning in June 2009, Albert led the development and delivery of SK&A’s premiere email data product and email campaign management service, contributing significantly to SK&A’s revenue growth.”
In addition to his operational responsibilities, Chang will be directing the efforts of Manus Gallagher, Senior Director of Sales, to help ensure the SK&A sales team achieves its revenue objectives on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis. Chang will also support the contracts and legal team to facilitate and close client contracts, and the human resources department to support recruitment and employee needs.
Mr. Green, who joined the company in 2004 from Experian, has held several senior SK&A database management positions. When Cegedim acquired SK&A in January 2010, Green was assigned the task of migrating the legacy SK&A databases to adhere to Cegedim’s global OneKey database standard. “Mike’s knowledge of the Research Center, the OneKey master file and the OneKey service is exceptional,” commented Escalante. “Overall, Mike is our U.S. expert on OneKey, and his knowledge and experience are great assets when selling to clients.”
In his new role, Green will be responsible for working with the Cegedim sales and account-management teams to sell new, up-sell existing, and close OneKey orders to achieve revenue objectives. Green will provide leadership, expertise and support for all aspects of client engagement for OneKey products and services during the sales cycle. He will also assist with proposals, contracts and pricing to help facilitate the closing process.
