Columbus, OH – Progressive Medical, Inc. has expanded its national sales team with the hire of John Howard and Michael Prager as national sales executives. Progressive Medical provides pharmacy benefit management and ancillary services in the workers’ compensation and auto no-fault industries.
Howard will be in charge of building and maintaining client relationships for the North Central region. He also will provide input and strategic recommendations on business development marketing initiatives for prospective clients within his territory. An alumnus of Rockhurst University, Howard previously spent 10 years with Concentra, where he held a variety of sales positions. He most recently served as national sales executive, successfully securing and managing major national accounts.
Prager will cover Progressive Medical’s Southwest region, securing national clients and contributing to sales strategy for lead cultivation. He fostered his sales career in the health and wellness arena, and, like Howard, most recently worked at Concentra, where he was a regional sales manager within Texas and Louisiana. He is a graduate of the University of North Texas and holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing.
“Michael’s leadership skills and proven success with selling to Fortune 500 companies will be a great asset to Progressive Medical,” said Mark Phelan, chief sales and marketing officer at Progressive Medical, “and John’s experience in the health care sector, along with his proven ability to capture and increase sales for high-profile clients, will allow us to continue to grow our presence in the marketplace.”
