Boone Lockard, CRT, has joined VGM & Associates as its new Director of VGM Respiratory.
Lockard brings more than 12 years of experience in the HME industry to the job. He started his career as a respiratory therapist at Lehan Drugs and also worked with Philips Respironics for three years as a key account manager.
“I am looking forward to working with the VGM membership on building additional value and navigating challenges in the industry,” Lockard said. “VGM has been an invaluable resource for me throughout my career. I’m excited to work with this team and meet our members.”
Boone’s experience as a respiratory therapist coupled with his knowledge of clinical, operations, billing, management, and sales in the DME industry will help him in his role, which includes working on expanding the respiratory program for VGM members, the organization noted in a public statement.
“We are beyond excited to have Boone join our team at VGM,” said Dave Lyman, RRT, senior vice president of sales for VGM & Associates. “His expertise not only as a respiratory therapist, but in billing and reimbursement, will be invaluable for our VGM members. Boone will bring a new perspective to the respiratory program, and we look forward to seeing how he continues to move the program forward.”
