viaLanguage, a leading provider of global translation and localization services, is pleased to announce that Steve Vogeltanz will join the company as vice president of Healthcare Business Unit. Vogeltanz will lead the strategic sales and development for the company’s business unit. In this role, he will help healthcare providers improve the quality of access to healthcare for their culturally diverse members and support the growing needs of the limited English proficient (LEP) population who, to date, have been underserved by the healthcare system.
A veteran of technology-enabled markets, Vogeltanz has over 20 years of experience in marketing, service, sales and managerial positions throughout his career. He has a demonstrable track-record of leading sales organizations to record growth in sales revenue, and as the vice president of Sales, he successfully took ProSight (Portland-based portfolio management software company) from $4 million to over $25 million in revenue in a four year period. Prior to joining viaLanguage, Vogeltanz held executive and senior management positions at Kapow Technologies, ProSight, IBM, Sequent Computer Systems, Data General and Tektronix.
