Agility Health names corporate development officer
Agility Health has named an executive with acquisition experience to help oversee its next phase of growth.
Agility Health in Grand Rapids, a provider of physical rehabilitation and software services, said this month that it has hired Terry Vanderkruyk as its chief corporate development officer.
Vanderkruyk most recently served as chief corporate development officer at Coastal Contacts, a global direct-to-consumer seller of eyewear. He oversaw business development, acquisition strategy and worked with investors.
Coastal Contacts was acquired by Essilor International earlier this year for $430 million.
Vanderkruyk has served in a number of senior management roles in the health care industry and initially started out working with the Medical Products Group at Johnson & Johnson.
Steve Davidson, CEO at Agility Health, said the company is delighted to have Vanderkruyk join the team.
“His experience in the life sciences sector, with a focus on business development, acquisitions, finance and investor relations, is a great fit with the next phase of growth at Agility,” Davidson said.
Agility Health (TSXV: AHI) said it has granted Vanderkruyk 450,000 stock options at CAD $0.24 per share, which will expire within five years of the grant date and be allocated in three equal installments of 150,000.
The stock was trading at CAD $0.225 as of Thursday afternoon.
Agility Health operates 74 outpatient or on-site rehabilitation locations in 17 states.
The company also launched its first practice management software, AgileRPM, earlier this fall.
