Michael Aldridge – Chief Information Officer
As the leader of the PMO in KC, Brian led the organization through significant change. The outcome of his work has created an environment where the business can make better, more well informed decisions about its strategic projects. Brian’s robust knowledge about IT and healthcare, along with his dedication make him a huge asset to any team. I would love the opportunity to work with him again.
