Passport names new sales chief

McKesson veteran replaces retired Drake

Revenue cycle software developer Passport Health Communications has hired Scott Bagwell to be its senior vice president of sales and marketing.

Bagwell replaces former Executive Vice President Jeff Drake, who retired last month after 11 years with the company. Bagwell previously was the SVP of sales and marketing at McKesson Pharmacy Systems and RelayHealth Pharmacy Solutions, two divisions of McKesson Corp., for three years.

“Scott’s track record of leadership and achieving strong sales performance will enable us to continue expanding our client base across the U.S., and increase the value we deliver to existing clients by selling them new software and services,” said Scott MacKenzie, Passport's CEO.

Prior to his time at McKesson, Bagwell spent four years in a similar position at Per-Se Technologies/NDCHealth Corp. He also has worked at Sunquest Information Systems/Misys and in the health systems division of First Data Corp.
