Emids, the proven leader in technology-led transformation and digital engineering to the healthcare and life sciences industry, today named Sean Narayanan as Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors. Company Founder and current CEO, Saurabh Sinha, will transition to the role of Chairman.
Narayanan joins Emids after nearly two years at the helm of digital services firm Apexon, where he led the company through a period of transformational growth. Prior to Apexon, Narayanan was Senior Executive Vice President and CEO of the $5 billion Business and Platform Solutions division of Atos, a global leader in digital transformation services. He has also previously held executive roles at Liquidhub, iGate (now Capgemini) and Cognizant.
“Emids is incredibly well positioned in the market with deep, longstanding, client relationships and a strong leadership team, and Sean is the perfect person to take the company to the next level and lead us through this period of rapid expansion,” said Saurabh Sinha, whose ascension to Chairman comes after nearly 24 years as CEO. “Sean has a stellar track record of building businesses and deep experience in scaling global organizations. Most importantly, Sean is a wonderful human being, and I have no doubt that he will instantly take to our organization’s values and make them his own.”
Emids’ core service offerings in technology-led Digital Transformation, Data and AI, and Consulting have fueled its growth over the past decade, with global headcount now reaching more than 3,300 team members. The company’s proprietary data management platform CoreLAKE™ and rapid health innovation platform MHCTM have seen a surge in client adoption in the past two years. Emids also founded and annually hosts one of the leading healthcare industry conferences – The Emids Healthcare Summit. The recent Summit held in November in Nashville had over 300 senior industry executives from across the healthcare and life sciences ecosystem in attendance.
“We are at a pivotal moment in healthcare and life sciences where organizations are leaning into the shift to value-based care and increasing digital engagement with patients and members,” said Sean Narayanan. “Through its deep healthcare and life sciences domain expertise and breadth of digital services capabilities, Emids is uniquely positioned to help its customers accelerate their digital transformation initiatives and improve patient outcomes. I am very excited to join Emids and continue to build on the company’s legacy of client centricity, innovation and entrepreneurialism.”
“We are very excited to welcome Sean to Emids,” said Jack Qian, Managing Director with New Mountain Capital. “We are extremely proud of the success that Emids has achieved under Saurabh’s leadership and look forward to partnering with both Sean and Saurabh in this next phase of the company’s growth.”
