Tuesday, November 28, 2017

TUCSON, Ariz. – Vertess, a healthcare M&A advisory firm, has added DME executive Eric Hymes as managing director. Hymes’ past experience includes a stint as general manager and senior executive with medical supplies provider CCS Medical, where he had responsibility for more than $100 million in P&L. “While my career in healthcare has always been focused on the end user and their families, the apex of my experience was successfully navigating an ever-shifting landscape of healthcare insurance policy and associated reimbursement pressures,” he said. “This created an environment where the most dynamic and well managed companies were always the market leaders and market survivors.” Hymes joined the M&A market in 2013, when he built a platform company in urological DME products and services, and then left the company as a “top 10 contender” in the market. At Vertess, he will focus on the DME (diabetes, insulin pump, orology, ostomy, incontinence, advanced wound care dressings) and specialty physician practice verticals.
