(PRESS RELEASE) ST. LOUIS – EyeCare Partners, the nation’s leading provider of clinically integrated eye care, announced Mark Barron has been named Chief Growth Officer.

Mark will lead teams across the company’s Growth organization: Marketing, Managed Care, Credentialing, the Patient Engagement Center and Business Development.

“The role of a Chief Growth Officer will leverage a more comprehensive approach to reach our next level of expansion and sustainable growth, uniting like growth and growth operations departments to build greater alignment and focus,” said Chris Throckmorton, Chief Executive Officer. “Since joining EyeCare Partners in its formative years, Mark has supported the company’s transformation from a high-reputation regional player into a national industry leader. We look forward to Mark’s continued leadership in his new role.”

“There is a substantial benefit in bringing together complementary growth departments under one umbrella, particularly in a business and macroenvironment where rate of change is accelerating as is complexity. Our ability to effectively allocate resources more quickly and with higher precision will be critical to our success,” said Barron. “I am thrilled to partner with my expanded team to deliver on our strategic growth objectives.”

Most recently, Barron was senior vice president of Business Development and Doctor Partnerships, and in that capacity led inorganic and non-core growth strategies across the enterprise.
