Mergers and acquisitions firm Vertess has added healthcare entrepreneur Joshua Boynton as a managing director.
In 1996, Boynton founded LifeShare, a pioneering company in the intellectual/developmental disabilities market, and grew it into a multi-million-dollar firm that he sold to managed care giant Centene in 2013. He became an executive at that firm, and led an effort to diversify LifeShare and expand the I/DD footprint of Centene.
In his new role, Boynton will focus in the I/DD, behavioral healthcare and child welfare verticals for Vertess, as well as providing consulting and advisory services in managed healthcare.
“… he will be leading our effort as we become a ‘center of excellence’ in the disabilities marketplace,” Vertess Managing Partner Tom Schramski remarked of Boynton. “He has a great combination of entrepreneurial thinking with an understanding of the day-to-day reality of healthcare providers that will make him very successful in consulting and M&A transactions.”
“This position allows me to pursue my passion for innovative services that are customer-centric, while participating in exciting transactions in the healthcare sector,” Boynton said. “There are many new opportunities in the new world of managed healthcare and I foresee strong growth for Vertess headed into 2018 and beyond.”
