- Four healthcare industry veterans with impressive performance records named to new Global Sales roles
CAE Healthcare today announced it has turbocharged its Global Sales organization to drive increased growth across four key areas: Core Business, Strategic Business, Military & Government, and E-commerce. As part of the evolution, CAE Healthcare President Heidi Wood selected four industry leaders known for driving change, expanding markets and achieving results to helm each segment.
“The move to focus on four growth engines, each with its own astute and strategic leader, will accelerate our market expansion and maximize the significant opportunities we see ahead in healthcare,” said Wood, who also serves as Executive Vice President, Business Development and Growth Initiatives, CAE. “This approach gives us significantly more horsepower to seize significant and attractive opportunities. As a result, we expect we will continue to prosper in both our core and expanded markets.”
Jeff Evans, a 17-year veteran of GE Healthcare, is now Vice President, Global Sales, Core Business, CAE Healthcare, focusing on the company’s simulation-based training solutions. A former sales leader with Royal Philips, Randee Stapleton is joining CAE Healthcare as its Vice President, Global Sales, Strategic Business, to lead its strategic efforts, including potential acquisitions. Air Force Lt. (Ret.) Gen. Giovanni Tuck, a member of the Army Senior Executive Service, will join the company June 1 as Vice President, Global Sales, Military & Government. David Wildermuth, vice president of Marketing for CAE Healthcare, now spearheads e-commerce in his newly expanded role.
As GE’s former Vice President of Strategy, National Accounts and Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs), Jeff Evans brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to CAE. Previously, he was Vice President, GE Healthcare Digital, for the U.S. and Canada, growing both the core portfolio and newly added artificial intelligence suite of products. He also has experience in redefining sales processes and streamlining operating mechanisms focused on short-term execution and long-term strategy, key stakeholder development, data and analytics, channel strategy, distribution modeling, and many other significant developments across GE Healthcare.

Perna, who was appointed by then-President Donald Trump to spearhead OWS, and was largely responsible for the most expansive and successful vaccine coordination in American history, with a distribution and administration of approved vaccines and therapeutics valued at over $20 billion. Tuck has proven ability to cultivate, organize and coordinate high-performing teams while fostering collaboration among varied stakeholders to achieve singular strategic objectives in high-pressure environments.
