AUSTIN, Texas, May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ClearDATA®, the first comprehensive provider of healthcare-specific managed cloud, compliance and defense services, today announced it has appointed Jim Ducharme as its new Chief Technology Officer. An industry veteran with over 20 years of experience in product strategy and enterprise security—with a focus on governance, risk and compliance—Ducharme brings a wealth of expertise to the ClearDATA leadership team. As CTO, he will head ClearDATA’s product, engineering and IT teams, with a mission to provide the best technology offerings to solve its customers' most pressing pain points in migrating healthcare workloads to the cloud.

"We’re thrilled to have Jim join us as our new CTO," said Rick Froehlich, CEO at ClearDATA.
