St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) August 12, 2015
Amerinet President and CEO Brent Johnson has been named the 2015 recipient of The Association for Healthcare Resource & Materials Management’s (AHRMM) George R. Gossett Leadership Award. The award is the highest honor bestowed by AHRMM and is given to an individual who has demonstrated an extraordinary level of leadership and professionalism in the field, made significant contributions to AHRMM and advanced the healthcare supply chain.
The Leadership Award is presented in memory of George R. Gossett, an early president of AHRMM. In AHRMM’s official announcement of the award, Johnson was lauded by Christopher J. O'Connor, immediate past chair of AHRMM, as an “outspoken proponent of healthcare supply chain management [who] challenges current thinking, strategies and paradigms to facilitate supply chain improvement and value creation.”
Johnson has a passion for supply chain management and has over 25 years of senior management and consulting experience applying best practices. In addition to the AHRMM award, Johnson is also a member of the Bellweather League, a Hall of Fame for Healthcare Supply Chain Leadership.
He has developed the supply chain strategies for three major companies that produced significant results. During his tenure with Intermountain Healthcare as the lead of the company’s supply chain strategy, he created an industry “top 25 Gartner” Supply Chain Organization which has achieved over $200 million in savings, exceeding the $20 million annual goal given to him when he was hired.
In his new role as president and CEO of Amerinet, Brent Johnson oversees the company’s strategic vision and operational direction dedicated to creating a professional supply chain company that offers a comprehensive suite of services to empower healthcare providers to better manage their entire non-labor spend and ultimately deliver superior care. Amerinet’s focus is on helping members make supply chain excellence a core competency within their organizations and collaborating with them to achieve their high-level strategic goals through supply chain initiatives.
During the just concluded AHRMM 2015 Conference, Amerinet representatives highlighted a new committed contracting program with Intermountain Healthcare which illustrates the benefits of standardization and commitment to saving money in the supply chain.
