AUSTIN, TEXASDrummond Group announced today the promotion of Kyle Meadors as its new president and Aaron Gomez as the company’s chief scientist and director of the B2B, EPCS and CSOS testing services.
Previously serving as the director of electronic health records (EHR), Meadors was critical in leading Drummond Group’s testing and certification efforts for the ONC’s HIT Certification Program. Since its launch in 2010, the organization’s EHR Test Lab has become the leading testing body for EHR and health IT systems.
In conjunction with these leadership promotions, co-founders Rik Drummond and Beth Morrow announced their retirement from daily management positions and will now serve as the company’s senior advisors.
“Beth and I consider ourselves blessed and humbled that we had the opportunity to start Drummond Group more than 15 years ago and witness its growth into the company it is today,” said Drummond. “As with any business, there were challenges along the way, but that only makes it more satisfying to see where it is now. On a personal level, this is the right time for us and the company to make this transition.”
“Rik and I have discussed this transition for some time and mentored Kyle for this new role,” Morrow said. “He is an excellent leader with a vision for the future of Drummond Group. Aaron has a tremendous technical mind and expertise, and both will lead together and take the company to the next level. They have been with Drummond Group nearly its entire existence and embody the organization’s culture and values.”
“Rik and Beth have provided remarkable leadership and talent over the years, as witnessed by the success of this company, and our team is indebted to their wisdom and values inherent throughout the business,” Meadors said. “We are committed to continuing to focus on upholding their mission to consistently provide quality certification and testing services for all customers.”
In a message to Drummond Group customers, Meadors added, “Without question, our top priority is customer care and we are grateful for the exceptional levels of loyalty to our service offerings in the e-commerce and health IT marketplaces, including B2B, CSOS, EHR and EPCS. Our entire team appreciates the value of companies’ trust and business, and will continue our commitment in making customer satisfaction our No. 1 goal every day.”
