Merge Healthcare announced that it has added two former Allscripts executives to the Merge senior leadership team. Steve Brewer will serve as executive vice president, product solutions and will have responsibility for the company’s solution strategy, marketing, and business development teams. Steve Martin joins as senior vice president, sales and will lead all of Merge’s global sales efforts.
Both Brewer and Martin joined Allscripts in 2007 through Allscripts’ acquisition of ECIN, a web-based care management provider. They both served on the ECIN management team, along with current Merge CEO Jeff Surges, who was the CEO of ECIN for the nine years prior to the acquisition by Allscripts.
“I’ve known and worked with both Steve Brewer and Steve Martin for most of the last 20 years,” said Surges. “I’m thrilled to add them to the great team we already have in place here at Merge.”
Brewer has 22 years in healthcare and IT leadership positions and was most recently responsible for Solutions Sales at Allscripts. Prior to joining Allscripts, he served as CEO of Dentalxchange, Inc. and was employed as a general manager of the Practice Management Group at McKesson.
Martin has served in sales leader positions for the last 20 years. At Allscripts, he served as SVP, segment sales, with sales leadership responsibility for the Acute and Post-Acute markets. Previously, he was on the senior management team of ECIN from the company’s inception through the acquisition by Allscripts in 2007.
