Ms. Rosen joins PERA from Centura Health, where she led both core and innovative IT functions as Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. Previously, she held multiple technology-oriented leadership roles at Slalom, culminating in Practice Area Lead. In that role, she accelerated the growth of Slalom's technology enablement practice, overseeing technologysolution architecture, sales, and delivery for multiple clients, including healthcare provider organizations. Earlier, she led global go-to-market efforts at Hitachi Insight Group and served as a client service manager in KPMG's healthcare IT practice. Ms. Rosen holds an MBA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a B.A. in English from Williams College. Ms. Rosen was identified and sourced through Kain's proprietary network of industry experts.
"We are excited to see Julia join the management team at PERA," said Steven Yecies, Managing Partner at Kain Capital and Co-Chairman of PERA Holdings.
