Ron Gleitman and Catherine Richardson have been announced as exciting new additions to the EarQ leadership team as the company expands and continues to drive innovation in hearing healthcare.
Big changes are happening in hearing healthcare and EarQ is at the forefront. In addition to redefining its next-level solutions for independent practices, the company has brought on industry-experts, Ron Gleitman, PhD, as VP of Sales and Practice Development and Catherine Richardson, MA, F-AAA, as Outside National Sales Director.
The leading resource for independent practice owners, EarQ is expanding its staff—leadership and beyond—to offer more value to its members. This year alone, the company will grow by 50 percent. EarQ has also redefined its programs that connect more patients to the independent practice.
“Hearing care providers are facing a lot of new challenges, but we have been prepared for these changes and we are facing them head-on,” says Andrew Hebert, Senior Vice President of EarQ. “With their industry knowledge and commitment to the independent practice, Catherine and Ron offer even more value to EarQ members.”
Catherine comes to EarQ with a wealth of experience in hearing healthcare and is familiar with the needs and challenges of today’s practice owners. She holds a Master's in Audiology from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, worked as area sales director for Widex USA, and later owned her own practice.
Ron earned his Doctorate of Philosophy in Audiology from Purdue University in 1992. He has worked in clinical settings, owned his own practice, taught at universities, and worked with major brands in hearing care. For the past six years, Ron served as Vice President of Development at Signia/Siemens Hearing Instruments Inc, in Piscataway, New Jersey. Throughout his career, he has been invested in private practice audiology and building businesses.
“If practices continue to do right by the patient and maintain the right business model, they will shine in this competitive landscape,” says Ron. “EarQ has the programs in place that will help hearing healthcare professionals become better business owners and I look forward to enhancing them in my new role.”
In addition to a new account support structure that generates an average of 36 new patients per year, EarQ members have access to an advanced digital strategy, an interactive business resource center, and an exclusive partnership with the NFL Players Association. These programs help practice owners manage their businesses and reach more patients while remaining independent.
With new leadership, evolved resources, and tangible results, EarQ is looking toward the future. For more information about EarQ and its programs, please contact 866-432-7500.
