EpicMD, www.epic.md, a trusted leader in cloud-based telehealth and telemedicine technology platforms, today announced the appointment of Jack Karabees as EpicMD’s President and Vice President of Sales. Karabees has spent over 25 years successfully establishing and executing high-growth sales and marketing plans for enterprise healthcare, payer and hospital-related software technology companies. “We feel that Karabees brings an unusual blend of technology and healthcare leadership experience to the company,” said Matt Wanderer, company CEO. “His experience at this stage of company growth is also a fantastic fit,” he continued.
Prior to joining Epic Health, Mr. Karabees served as Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Entic, www.entic.com, a cloud-based platform designed to analyze and optimize energy consumption in hospitals and large healthcare facilities, where he grew sales and established their Series-A funding led by ClearSky and Blackstone. Perhaps most complimentary to his new role, though, is Jack’s former role as President and CEO of Consult A Doctor, www.consultadoctor.com, a cloud-based technology and services provider to healthcare providers and payers and telemedicine services to employers and payers, from start-up through Series A fundraising and their successful acquisition by Kleiner Perkins-backed Teladoc (TDOC).
Preceding that time, Jack was Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at eLabor, a Cloud-based Time & Attendance, Nurse Scheduling and Project Management application provider to the hospital and large provider marketplace from early-stage through Series A and B financings and to separate divisional company acquisitions by Microsoft (MSFT) and ADP (ADP). Karabees served honorably in the United States Air Force and is a Co-Founder and Director of the Miami Innovation Fund.
