Tracy Wise has been promoted from associate vice president of CHAMPS Group Purchasing to vice president of CHAMPS Group Purchasing. In this role, she is responsible for leading the division’s ongoing growth, customer satisfaction and retention, as well as helping GPO customers maximize their savings and increasing contract utilization.

“Wise has proven to be a great collaborator with a good vision to lead this program,” said Mazanec. “She has developed great relationships with the entire GPO team and is certainly qualified for this promotion and new role.”

Lisa AndersonIn addition to these promotions, Senior Vice President of Member Services Lisa Anderson will now oversee corporate communications and the Northeast Ohio Hospital Opioid Consortium. These key organizational changes come a little less than two months after Mazanec, formerly the organization’s chief operating officer, accepted the position as The Center and CHAMPS’ Interim President & CEO.

“In my short time leading the organization, it has become clear we need to rely more on the strength and talent that currently exists among our team,” said Mazanec. “Our organizational structure had become too flat. We need specialists with clear job functions who can focus on the future growth of The Center and CHAMPS. These organizational changes will allow us to work more effectively and efficiently in 2018.”
