PGi, a global leader in virtual meetings, today announced that K. Robert (“Rob”) Draughon, CEO of Press Ganey Associates, Inc., a leader in quality measurement and performance improvement solutions for the health care industry, has joined its board of directors. Mr. Draughon, who qualifies as an independent director, replaces outgoing board member Jeffrey T. Arnold. Mr. Arnold, Chairman and Chief Architect of Sharecare, Inc. and Chief of Global Digital Strategy for Discovery Communications, has resigned from PGi’s board in order to focus on the significant responsibilities he retains in these companies.
“We are pleased to welcome Rob to the dynamic, strategic group of business leaders that makes up our board,” said Boland T. Jones, PGi founder, chairman and CEO, who is leading PGi’s next-generation product innovation. “Rob’s significant experience in corporate development and financial planning will be extremely valuable as we look to continue to expand PGi’s global footprint and grow our market share with our innovative new meetings solutions, iMeet ® and GlobalMeet ® .”
“Jeff has been one of PGi’s most tenured and valued board members. We thank him for his twelve years of committed service and invaluable contributions to our success,” continued Jones. “While we will miss Jeff’s counsel on our board, we support his decision to focus more of his time and energy on building Sharecare into a global leader in providing expert health information online.”
Mr. Draughon joined South Bend, Indiana-based Press Ganey in 2009 as CFO. He later assumed responsibility for the company’s day-to-day operations when his role expanded to CEO. Prior to joining Press Ganey, Mr. Draughon served in a variety of roles in finance and corporate development at HLTH Corporation and its subsidiary, WebMD Health Corp., including as CFO of WebMD prior to its merger with HLTH, where Mr. Draughon developed and led multiple strategic partnerships with many of the world’s largest technology companies.
