DEDHAM, Massachusetts—AliMed, Inc., a Massachusetts-based medical supply manufacturer and distributor, announced the naming of Gregg Brewster as vice president of global commercial partnerships, joining the company’s growing sales leadership team.
In this newly created role, Brewster will lead AliMed’s channel growth strategies with distributor partners and group purchasing organizations (GPOs), focusing on key accounts and regional GPOs to foster and strengthen relationships aimed at expanding AliMed’s footprint in the post-acute care space.
“Healthcare is a fast-paced industry, and it’s easy to get left behind in today’s landscape,” said Brewster. “I’m passionate about my mission to help arm our internal teams with the knowledge and tools required to fortify our sales approach while nurturing and inspiring performances to ensure AliMed is always at the front of the line.”
A 39-year healthcare industry veteran with sales leadership roles at Owens & Minor and Cardinal Health, Brewster has spent much of his career driving all aspects of sales, marketing and financial performance while building strategic partnerships with integrated delivery networks (IDNs) and national GPOs. Most recently, Brewster worked as an independent consultant, supporting hospitals and large regional purchasing coalitions to improve supply chain efficiencies, allowing them to focus on reducing costs, expanding diversity business initiatives and improving patient care.
“Gregg brings an incredible amount of expertise and depth to this role,” said Adam Epstein, CEO of AliMed. “He’s built a tremendous reputation in the distribution sector, and his leadership mentoring style is legendary. No one is more uniquely qualified to not only navigate the complexities of these critical growth areas but bolster our position within them. We’re thrilled to welcome him to AliMed.”
A “student of the industry,” Brewster has been recognized for his mentorship and training efforts with young professionals and has served as a representative on corporate and industry boards, championing community involvement, diversity, and women’s initiatives. He just completed a six-year membership on the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) Foundation Board of Directors and was recently appointed by the governor of Arizona as a regent on his home state of Arizona’s Board of Regents.
Brewster holds a bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University and resides in Phoenix.
