Steve Treff has been promoted to President and Chief Operating Officer. These new assignments have been made in response to the company's rapid growth and to promote future expansion.
"Mike and Steve are two dynamic leaders with over 55 years' combined experience in the pharmacy benefit managed care industry. Much of our growth over the past few years has been supported by their operational and clinical management. Their vision and passion will help lead our company into the future," said Roger Burgess, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ProCare Rx. "The pharmacy benefit management role in healthcare has changed dramatically over the past few years and continues to rapidly evolve. Through their visionary leadership, I expect ProCare Rx to continue to stay ahead of that evolution and to provide our clients with industry leading technical and clinical services coupled with innovative, cutting edge pharmacy cost management programs. They will each report directly to me, and I look forward to working with Mike and Steve in their new roles."
Mr. Rose, who most recently served as ProCare Rx's Executive Vice President/General Manager of ProCare PharmacyCare and ProCare HospiceCare, has been with the company for over 8 years and has over 20 years of managed care/pharmacy experience.
