POMPANO BEACH, Fla., July 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — CentralReach, a leading provider of electronic health record, clinical solutions and practice management software for clinics focused on applied behavior analysis (ABA), speech therapy, and occupational therapy (OT), is proud to announce the appointment of its new Chief Executive Officer, Chris Sullens, effective immediately. Coinciding with this announcement, CentralReach also plans to add a New Jersey office location to its current headquarters located in Pompano Beach, Florida.
Today’s announcement comes at an exciting inflection point for CentralReach. The company continues to experience rapid organic growth and recently acquired Chartlytics, the leading real-time behavior change analytics software provider, to solidify its position as the market leader in ABA therapy technology.
CentralReach also released a second version of CR Go, the platform’s powerful mobile application that enables in-session clinical data collection by clinicians regardless of whether the device is online or offline.
“I’m thrilled to join the CentralReach team as it embarks on this next stage of growth and investment,” said Sullens. “We have a unique opportunity to enhance our platform in a way that enables our clients to automate and streamline back office tasks so they can focus their time and energy where it belongs, providing great outcomes for their patients and families. With the strong backing of Insight Venture Partners, we have the financial resources, experience and expertise to significantly increase investment in our people, our products and our systems to support our growth and improve client satisfaction.”
Sullens brings decades of experience to the company and has a proven track record of building strong company cultures and taking customer-centric technology companies like CentralReach to the next level. Prior to CentralReach, Sullens spent 10 years as President and CEO of WorkWave, a leading provider of cloud-based software solutions for the field service and last mile logistics industries, which was recently acquired by IFS, an EQT-backed, global enterprise software provider based in Sweden. WorkWave is well known for its award-winning culture, growth and community service. Under Sullens’ leadership, it was recognized by NJ Best Places to Work seven times, named an Inc. Best Place to Work company, named to the Inc. 5000 list for fast growing companies five times and earned numerous other growth and culture awards. Sullens was also named 2016 EY Entrepreneur of the Year in New Jersey for Software Services and won a Stevie award for People Focused CEO of the Year in 2017.
“It is with great pleasure and confidence that I welcome Chris to our family,” said CentralReach founder and former CEO, Charlotte Fudge. “Chris is a true visionary with a proven track record of execution. His seasoned expertise and skills combined with his passion for serving his customers are indicators for the type of industry-leading success CentralReach will continue to experience and thrive on under his leadership.”
“As we continue to see prevalence rates climb, demand for autism care has never been higher. With Chris’ next-generation mindset and a focus on continuing to adopt the most advanced technological solutions to meet the growing demands of clinicians, CentralReach will be able to augment the industry entirely so that daily practice struggles are replaced with a precise focus on quality care,” said Richard Wells, Managing Director at Insight Venture Partners. “We’re thrilled to bring Chris on board to lead the team, and look forward to this next chapter in CentralReach’s journey.”
