U.S. Preventive Medicine, Inc., the leader in prevention, has announced the appointment of Bradley K. Kozar as President, Global Markets.

“Brad is one of the strongest sales and marketing executives in the health care industry. His decades of leading sales and marketing for national companies focused on the managed care, insurance and pharmaceutical industries are beyond compare.

We are thrilled that he has chosen to lead our global business development efforts,” said Christopher Fey, Chairman and CEO of U.S. Preventive Medicine.
Kozar founded a managed care communications and marketing company/agency acquired by MediMedia and went on to expand to three divisions in the managed markets group, which became a consistent top performing MediMedia business unit. After 2009, during a time of decline for many competitors and clients, they increased new client acquisition by more than 25 percent, leading to overall revenue growth of 33 percent and EBITDA by 44 percent in 2010. He managed the divisional senior management staff and more than 125 employees, frequently meeting or exceeding sales targets. Kozar also served on the MediMedia U.S.A. Board/Executive Committee during his tenure there.
He has served on the Industry Advisory Board of the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy and was frequently a speaker at Industry/Association conferences on managed care. He has moderated more than 800 customer policy and advisory board meetings as well as served as a panel moderator and trainer. He holds a degree in communication from the University of Toledo, where he was also recently elected to and currently serves as a member of the Alumni Board of Trustees.
