EarQ has added stand-out talent and experience to its already robust leadership team to better serve the needs of its expanding network of independent hearing healthcare providers and continue to be a driving force within the industry.
Syracuse, NY (January 7, 2016)—To hit the ground running this New Year, EarQ is announcing four notable changes to its leadership team that will help usher in a new era of success for the group:
- Andrew Hebert will now serve as EarQ’s Senior Vice President
- Clifford Carey will step into the new role of Vice President of Communications
- Natalie Phillips, Au.D., will be EarQ’s first Director of Audiology
- Sarah Burtch will advance into the role of National Sales Director
“With their individual talents and passion as well as their combined experiences, our new leadership team is ready to accomplish tremendous things for not only our company but the industry as a whole,” said Ed Keller, president of EarQ.
Formerly the vice president, Andrew has dedicated the past nine years to leading the company in its development and execution of innovative programs and services to deliver the best results for EarQ members and their patients. As senior vice president, Andrew will continue to help steer the company into the future and ensure its commitment to providing independent practice owners with the unique services they need to thrive.
Clifford’s new position comes after three years of successfully transitioning EarQ’s creative department from a traditional print agency to a full-scale digital services center as director of communications. In his expanded role as vice president of communications, Clifford will work to elevate the EarQ brand and its impact on more new professional and consumer audiences than ever before.
Board certified in audiology and a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology, Natalie is a well-respected voice in the industry. While continuing to practice at Advanced Otolaryngology and Audiology in Fort Collins, Colorado, Natalie will offer her expertise as a professional voice for patients and advise EarQ’s educational content development.
Sarah brings over 10 years of experience in sales, marketing, and brand management to the EarQ team. She has previously served as the vice president of sales and operations of Beowulf Natural Feeds, Inc., the national inside sales manager of DFA Farm Supplies, and the district sales manager for Kellogg Company. As EarQ’s national sales director, Sarah will oversee the business consulting team and its array of services for EarQ members.
“We’re incredibly energized by the recent changes to the hearing healthcare industry and can’t wait to share our new ideas with the world,” Keller added.
