Mr. Barker expressed his enthusiasm for the continued growth and success of OPEN Health: “I am excited to be leading such a talented and expert team who have been instrumental in growing OPEN Health to its current position. We are now in a place to take even greater strides forward, and I feel confident that our continued focus on client service and scientific excellence will drive increased growth in the business.”

“Rob Barker has proven himself as an outstanding strategic and operational leader, and we are confident that he is the ideal executive to lead OPEN Health through its next exciting stage of growth,” said Ramsey Frank, Managing Partner and co-founder of Amulet. Amulet Partner Nick Amigone added, “Medical Affairs, Medical Communications, Market Access and HEOR have taken on increasingly important roles in bringing new therapies to market. Rob has been instrumental in assembling a suite of best-in-class capabilities at OPEN Health and driving the business to achieve its full potential.”

Mr. Frank added, “David Rowley leaves the business with our enormous thanks. He has grown OPEN Health from an initial idea to a leading global healthcare communications group. All his colleagues at OPEN Health are grateful to him and wish him well for the future. David will work with us in an advisory capacity to ensure a smooth transition.”
