The company has also tapped Rick Jung as its new chairman and CEO. Clinicient adds that Todd Clapp and Ryan McNally of Catalyst Investors have joined its Board of Directors. The company notes that its new CEO served on Clinicient’s Board of Directors for 6 years and holds a deep understanding of the specialized business and vertical sector.
