Agfa HealthCare recently announced it was expanding its executive team with two key appointments to pursue continued growth in North America. William Corsten will step in as the company’s new regional president in North America reporting to Luc Thijs, president of Agfa HealthCare NV. In addition, Frank Pecaitis has been appointed vice president of enterprise imaging sales for the United States and Canada.

“We are excited to announce the addition of Bill and Frank to our executive leadership in North America,” Thijs said. “Each brings decades of valuable experience in healthcare IT, as well as impactful business strategies and a passion for customer care. Together, they will drive Agfa HealthCare’s mission to make our customers in North America successful by enabling them to deliver quality of care while capturing efficiency gains, by providing timely access to the right information and intelligence, and by supporting their journey towards integrated care, ultimately positioning our company as their strategic partner of choice.”

Corsten has 23 years of experience in healthcare IT and most recently served as senior vice president of solution sales for M*Modal, where he oversaw technology sales in the ambulatory and acute care markets. Pecaitis brings more than 20 years of experience to his position, and worked to build profitable market share growth at QuadraMed Corporation and GE Healthcare.

“I greatly welcome the opportunity to lead Agfa HealthCare’s North America business operations as the company is poised for significant growth on a number of fronts,” Corsten said. “As dynamics in healthcare IT and imaging steer innovation towards greater efficiency, flexibility, and mobility, Agfa HealthCare’s portfolio of technologies is well-positioned to capture greater market share throughout the North America.”
