pihms, Inc. Hires New Executive Vice President for Sales & Marketing

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - August 20, 2009) - Pihms, Inc. has hired Pat Cua as the company's new Executive Vice President for Sales and Marketing. Pat joins pihms, Inc. with over twenty-four years of Sales, Corporate Executive and Business Development experience in the healthcare industry. Pat is a seasoned executive with large public company experience as well as small private company experience.

"We are thrilled to have Pat on board as a part of our executive team," said pihms, Inc. CEO and President, Patrick J Kalnas. "This is an exciting time for us as we enter the next phase of growth for pihms, Inc."

Pat's healthcare industry experience began with C.R. Bard, a multi-billion dollar medical device company. Pat held various positions during his eight year tenure with C.R. Bard.

Leaving C.R. Bard, Pat joined a venture capital start up called Cardiac Alliance. Cardiac Alliance was a small company trying to push its way into the yet to be defined or named industry which ultimately became the Disease Management and Wellness industry. Within the first year of Cardiac Alliance, Pat led the search and found the company that Cardiac Alliance later merged with. This merger with Ralin Medical was the start of what would ultimately become CorSolutions. Pat's role focused on being a key member of the Executive Team, building and leading sales teams, driving strategic acquisitions and either leading or playing key roles in mergers. Fifteen years, hundreds of organic sales, and several acquisitions later, the resulting company is a five hundred million dollar division of Inverness Medical (IMA), a multibillion dollar Healthcare services and device company.

Pihms, Inc. originally founded in 1995 (as KCRS, Inc.) as a management consulting company initially specialized in benchmarking and process re-engineering, eventually evolved into a Software as a Service (SaaS) provider focusing on best practices for tracking, measuring and managing human capital. Pihms' unique (and patented) process takes employee leave, safety and case management information from disparate sources and delivers it to the right decision makers at the right time. The workflow ensures that best practices are used to remain compliant with all FMLA and OSHA regulations.

Pihms, Inc. is headquartered in Pittsburgh with offices in Atlanta and Glasgow, Scotland. For more information visit www.pihms.com.
