Amitech Expands Executive Team

June 22, 2018 (ST. LOUIS)– St. Louis-based, Amitech Solutions announces the addition of Robert Van Gilder to the company’s executive team. As Vice President of Finance & Accounting, Van Gilder will be responsible for financial operations and reporting, leading and coordinating the annual long-term planning process, tax and audit compliance, and pricing and financial analysis.

“Bob is a key addition to the leadership team at Amitech,” said Amitech COO, Michael Demos. “His depth of experience in healthcare and technology will be of considerable value in helping us manage growth and solidify our readiness to provide the support our clients need now and in the future as the industry continues the shift to value-based care and reimbursement.”

Prior to his position at Amitech, Van Gilder served most recently as the Vice President of Finance and Accounting at Livongo (formerly Retrofit). During his tenure, Van Gilder’s leadership helped to more than double gross margin as he worked to obtain substantial equity investment and successfully execute Retrofit’s sale to Livongo in April 2018.

In a previous role as Vice President of Finance/Corporate Controller at Oak Street Healthcare, Van Gilder was instrumental in the creation of an operational infrastructure necessary to transition from a fee-for-service to a value-based model, generating $30M in incremental annual revenues. He also played a key role in winning $60M in private equity investment from a large P/E firm. Comparable success in previous leadership roles at Lumeris and CenturyLink (formerly Savvis) reinforce his capability to help lead Amitech and the top healthcare organizations they serve into the future.

“I’m very excited to be joining Amitech,” said Van Gilder. “The organization has a proven track record of driving strong ROI in the form of improving patient outcomes and reducing costs within the healthcare industry by leveraging the power of data. I’m eager to help further that success.”

Van Gilder is a certified public account and holds a bachelor’s in business from the University of Missouri and a master’s in business administration from St. Louis University.
