SOC Telemed announces executive leadership appointments, promotions
Reston-based telemedicine technology provider SOC Telemed on Monday announced executive leadership appointments and promotions, effective Jan. 4.
Hai Tran, who currently serves as chief financial officer and chief operating officer, has been promoted to serve as president and COO. Chris Knibb will join the company as its new CFO.
With more than 20 years of experience, Tran has been with SOC Telemed for the past five years. He earned his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Virginia and his master’s degree in business administration from the University of Richmond.
“As 2020 comes to an end, the need for accessible health care is ever more obvious. I am thoroughly impressed with the existing executive team at SOC Telemed and humbled to be joining a company leading in telemedicine innovation,” Knibb said in a statement. “It is my goal to continue Hai’s efforts as CFO and utilize my background in improving the financial performance of companies to support our long-term strategic plans.”
Knibb was most recently the CFO and COO of Agilis Systems, a GPS fleet management company. He earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of South Florida.
In November, SOC Telemed opened at $10 per share on the Nasdaq stock exchange. The company announced its public offering on Friday following its merger with Healthcare Merger Corp. (HCMC), a special purpose acquisition company.
