Recently, Acentia appointed Tom Woteki, Ph.D, as the company’s chief architect for strategy and solutions development. Woeki has more than 25 years of experience with large-scale systems engineering, integration, and software development in the public and private sectors.
In this new role, Woteki will lead the company’s Centers of Excellence in support of customers’ mission-critical needs. He will also help sharpen the company’s focus to further solidify its position in healthcare information technology, while identifying and integrating new technologies into the company’s key offerings.
Acentia’s CEO Todd Stottlemyer said, “Earlier this year we announced a new brand identity – Acentia – to reflect our commitment to solving complex mission-critical challenges faced by our customers on programs of national significance. Adding Tom to the team enhances our ability to execute on this commitment, as his extensive career in the government, private, and healthcare sectors is distinguished by an ability to develop and manage innovative large-scale information technology programs.”
Prior to Acentia, Woteki was director and GM of Cisco’s healthcare solutions business unit. He also served as an executive at Northrop Grumman mission systems where he managed a portfolio of large-scale systems integration and e-business solutions programs for diverse clients.
Woteki held the position of CIO and senior VP of the American Red Cross where he was responsible for its enterprise information technology and telecommunications needs nationwide. He was also director of worldwide clinical data systems at Merck Research Labs, the R&D division of Merck Pharmaceuticals.
“I look forward to lending my experience managing and integration technology solutions for both public and private sector organizations, and to enable Acentia to continue its aggressive expansion plans,” Woteki said.
