Ryan Westwood becomes new Chair of Lumary

Software company Lumary, a leading supplier of healthcare solutions for disability, aged care and therapy providers, has appointed Ryan Westwood as the new chairman of its board.

A seasoned tech entrepreneur, Westwood has experience in successfully scaling up companies. As co-founder of software provider Simplus, he guided the company from startup status to a position where it was generating over $400 million in revenue before merging with Infosys Salesforce Practice.

Westwood has been recognised as both Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year and Utah Business CEO of the Year. In 2021, he was named as one of the Best CEOs in America for Women by corporate review site Comparably.

“As I explored the potential within Lumary, I was captivated by the company’s commitment to making a real social impact through its core value of providing services to healthcare providers,” Westwood said.

“Lumary’s dedication to supporting the sustainability of healthcare providers whilst empowering care recipients aligns seamlessly with my personal and professional values. I am excited to be part of Lumary’s journey, contributing to a future where health care is not just a service but a transformative experience for all.”

Lumary said that the appointment of Westwood underscored its commitment to attracting and cultivating an environment of innovation and excellence at a time when it is scaling up as a global enterprise.

“We are thrilled to have Ryan join Lumary as chairman of the board,” said Joseph Mercorella, CEO and co-founder of Lumary.

“Ryan’s extensive experience, drive and personal values make him an invaluable addition to our team. His proven track record in leading successful companies aligns perfectly with Lumary’s vision for the future.

“Ryan’s strategic insights and commitment to innovation will undoubtedly provide immense value to Lumary as we continue to push boundaries and redefine the healthcare digital landscape. We look forward to achieving even more under his guidance,” Mercorella concluded.
