Lumary is pleased to announce the expansion of its leadership team by welcoming Jason Collins as Senior Vice President of Strategic Corporate Development. In this new role, Jason will be responsible for developing and executing Lumary’s growth plans and forging a stronger connection between Lumary and its customers.
Jason is a highly regarded healthtech industry veteran with 15 years of experience leading organisations through large-scale business transformation and delivering integrated technology solutions. He joins us from his recent tenure as CIO at Life Without Barriers (LWB), one of Australia’s largest charitable organisations, providing services to many communities, including disability and aged care. Jason was in charge of all aspects of technology at LWB, and during his six years with the not-for-profit, the company grew from 4,000 employees to 8,500 and Jason’s tech team expanded from its initial 17 to almost 90.
As Lumary’s SVP of Strategic Corporate Development, Jason’s depth of knowledge in the healthcare sector will see him contributing to product roadmaps, uncovering new opportunities that align with Lumary’s goal of accelerating growth and building strong relationships within the Lumary community.
“I want to help grow the business as much as possible while helping our clients achieve good commercial outcomes,” He said. “It should always be a win-win situation. A win for Lumary is a product that empowers our customers to deliver quality person-centred care to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible cost”.
Welcoming Jason to Lumary reinforces our commitment to establishing a knowledgeable and experienced team of in-house industry experts. These specialists help inform product build and prioritise improvements in line with ongoing sector changes and providers’ needs.
“Jason’s appointment is significant and one of the most important hires in our business so far,” says Lumary CEO and cofounder, Joseph Mercorella. “His extensive leadership and expertise in driving digital transformation for healthcare organisations and his understanding of technology as the enabler of this transformation is exactly the ethos of Lumary. It’s one of the key reasons we’ve achieved what we have in a short period of time. With Jason in this executive role, I want our customers and future customers to know that every decision we make is to better understand and support them and the people in their care”.
Says Jason about his new position at Lumary, “more than anything, I am passionate about technology and working with smart people to solve big challenges. What attracted me to Lumary was their sky is the limit thinking. The potential for growth and value creation is tremendous, and I’m confident that together we can reach the sky and create something truly special for our customers and the community they serve”.
The team at Lumary is looking forward to collaborating alongside Jason as we continue to create better wellbeing through technology for the community we serve.
