CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Secure EDI, Inc., a leading provider of electronic claims solutions and services for payers and providers, announced today that Gordon “Stonie” Glenn, former CEO of SXC Health Solutions Inc., has joined its Board of Directors.
Mr Glenn has more than 35 years experience managing and leading high growth businesses in technology and healthcare. Prior to his retirement in 2008, Mr. Glenn served as Chairman and CEO of SXC Health Solutions (NASDAQ: SXCI), a leading provider of pharmacy claims processing software and services and PBM products and services. From 1998 to 2006 Mr. Glenn was President and CEO of SXC and was appointed Chairman in 2006.
