Kent is a 25+ year technology executive with experience spanning many disciplines and industries including aerospace, state government, financial services, learning management, healthcare, technology & management consulting.
The first portion of his career was spent as a design engineer in the defense sector for Boeing Defense & Space Group. While there, Kent transitioned to data and software and has remained in that arena ever since. The following 10 years was spent managing all aspects of software development and delivery. The last third of Kent’s career has been focused on the business aspects of technology.
Kent’s expertise covers strategic planning, new market development, web-based product management, product strategy, partnership/relationship management, and sales. Kent’s primary focus for the last 6+ years has been healthcare where he has built and delivered solutions for both providers and payers. Kent earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Technology from Purdue University and an MBA from Seattle University. In addition, Kent serves as a councilor on the Dean's Advisory Council (DAC) at IU School of Informatics and Computing.
Kent and I worked closely together in a very challenging and dynamic healthcare technology startup arena. Our work necessitated a thorough understanding of very complex policy and technology issues coupled with the capacity to offer creative solutions to a wide variety of healthcare partner organizations. I found Kent's domain knowledge, technology depth, and relationship development acumen amongst the best I've ever encountered.
Kent's thoughtful leadership style engenders an open, collaborative and constructive work environment. He is a methodical thinker and a tireless researcher which makes him an invaluable source for complex technical and policy insights. In addition to furthering his abilities to contribute as an individual, he is sincere in his pursuit to empower his colleagues to contribute their best work, as well. Kent's approach to management and mentorship is intentional and tactful, providing tailored and constructive feedback and direction to his direct-reports. When navigating turbulent waters, Kent is someone people seek out to steady the ship.
I’ve known Kent several years. Above all he’s a good thinker with a highly organized brain. I’ve watched him bring order to large complex initiatives involving diverse groups of people and many moving parts. He can organize and visualize concepts, information and relationships and find ways to bring others to understand them.
In my years of working with Kent in healthcare data & technology solutions, I have found his domain knowledge to be extremely broad and robust. Kent's creative problem-solving capabilities are exceptional. I always enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with Kent - these sessions always produce excellent results and value.
Kent and I worked arm-in-arm in the Sales and BusDev trenches for a healthcare startup in a very complex and challenging environment. Success for us in these situations required a solid knowledge set for both the healthcare domain in terms of process and economics in addition to a fundamentally sound comprehension of the technology involved. Kent's depth in all of these areas was a unique and significant component to our success. I look forward to an opportunity for us to work together again in the future.
Kent and I worked together on numerous healthcare-related programs over the last several years. These spanned a broad range of activities from a multi-million dollar federal initiative to a statewide, highly complex, healthcare quality measurement and improvement program. All of these engagements required both a broad base of managerial and leadership skills and specific domain expertise. Kent’s depth of technology experience and his ability to quickly expand his fund of knowledge in health care, were critical to the success of these projects.
I have worked and collaborated with Kent in numerous capacities over the years. I always find his solutions to difficult healthcare challenges to be thoughtful, creative, and solid in both technology and business aspects. His ability to visualize complexity and distill into understandable explanations is second to none.

Perscio is a Tableau Alliance Partner
Perscio is excited to bring the power of Tableau to our clients. Tableau is quickly becoming the standard for business analytics and data visualization software. However, most businesses still don't know the full potential of Tableau or all the ways it can help discover insights in data.
Explore and Discover Insights in Your Data.
The most exciting part of Tableau, in our opinion, is that ability to "play" with multiple sources and types of data to find new insights you wouldn't even know to look for. Most of the time, people run reports only when they are looking for something, but Tableau's unique interactive dashboards reveal valuable correlations you might never have found otherwise.
