Chicago, IL – October 24, 2017 – In a move to expand its Northeast footprint, Rising Medical Solutions (Rising) has hired two Business Development Executives in the market.
Augmenting Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Timothy Howlin, who joined Rising in March 2017 out of New York, is longtime workers’ compensation executive Tyisha Torres. In her new role as Regional Vice President of Business Development, Tyisha will lead client acquisition and retention efforts in the Northeast region. Most recently Director of Casualty Operations at MagnaCare, Tyisha brings extensive managed care operations, claims management, and account management experience to Rising’s growing sales team. Other prior employers include American All-Risk Loss Administrators (AARLA), Sedgwick Claims Management Services, and The Risk Management Planning Group (RMPG).
Also joining Rising this month is new Regional Business Development Executive Katie Cosgrove. Katie will work out of New York and New Jersey and will strategically support all of Rising’s business development vice presidents in enhancing market share. She most recently worked at ExamWorks as an Account Executive across all lines of insurance and has paralegal and case management experience from prior roles.
In addition to Rising’s flagship medical bill review product suite, Tyisha will focus on the company’s bundled-rate surgical care management offering in New Jersey and Katie will focus on the company’s various care management offerings.
“With medical benefits representing nearly 70 percent of the workers’ compensation industry’s total claim costs, payers need effective medical management partnerships that deliver affordable, quality care,” says Howlin. “With the addition of two more business development team members in just five months, Rising is responding to increasing marketplace demand.”
