Earlier in his career, Bolger was President and Chief Operating Officer of Briggs Corporation, a direct marketing, manufacturing, and distribution company serving the long-term care and home care sectors. He began his career in healthcare with American Hospital Supply (later acquired by Baxter Healthcare, then Allegiance Healthcare), where he held a number of sales and general management positions.
“Phil’s significant experience in healthcare, and in sales and marketing, will be an asset as we continue our rapid growth,” said David Langsam, President and CEO of AdvantEdge. “In recent years, our growth in revenue and personnel has earned AdvantEdge recognition among the Inc. 5000 and the NJBIZ 50 Fastest Growing Companies. Now, with Phil spearheading new business development and strategic growth initiatives, we expect to build upon our success and further expand the AdvantEdge footprint across the United States.”“Today’s healthcare environment is increasingly dynamic and complex, further reinforcing the importance of deep expertise in reimbursement and financial management services,” said Bolger. “AdvantEdge’s client-centered approach to driving financial and compliance performance with expert, caring people, powerful technology, and actionable business intelligence perfectly aligns with those market needs. I’m excited to play an integral role in further advancing AdvantEdge’s leadership and growth by serving healthcare providers.”
