Karl Zachar, VP of Corporate Development, athenahealth
Athenahealth doesn’t need much of an introduction around here, but Karl’s responsible for its strategic partnership and acquisition strategy, which has gotten a lot more serious in the past couple of years–not coincidentally since he joined. For most of the last decade, Karl was President of IntrinsiQ, an oncology informatics company sold to Accel-KKR and then AmeriSourceBergen. Karl’s also a brave triathlete who spent several years helping run the experiential (and experimental) high school Shackleton School.
