She brings extensive knowledge of the healthcare marketplace as well as relevant public company experience through both her executive leadership roles and previous board memberships. As we bring our unique solutions to a broader base of customers across the country, we believe Susan’s experience and perspective will provide valuable contributions to Sharps. As we welcome Susan, we would also like to thank F. Gardner Parker for his many years of valuable service as a Sharps Compliance board member.”
Susan Vogt commented, “This is an exciting time for Sharps Compliance as the Company focuses on growing its market position as a comprehensive provider of medical waste solutions for small to medium quantity generators and also increasing its role as the leading provider of solutions for the disposal of unused, patient-dispensed medications. With its diverse solution offerings, Sharps has made excellent progress winning market share as demonstrated by its recently reported solid fourth quarter revenue growth across its three core solutions, route-based, mailback and unused medications as well as achieving record billing across all market segments. I look forward to working with the management team to further the Company’s leadership position in the markets Sharps serves.”
David P. Tusa, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and President added, “The senior management team welcomes Susan, whose background and experience are an excellent fit as we focus on increasing our market penetration in two growing markets, the $1 billion medical waste market and the $1 billion unused medication disposal market. We believe fiscal year 2020 should benefit from growth across all of our solution offerings and markets, due not only to our successful transformation to a comprehensive solutions provider but also due to our unwavering focus on customer service, reasonable contract terms and fair pricing to underserved markets. We look forward to Susan’s contributions and believe her broad experience across a variety of segments of the healthcare industry, will prove to be extremely valuable as we raise market awareness around our diverse capabilities and solution offerings.”
