SEWICKLEY, Pa., Sept. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Annexus Health leadership team continues to expand with the addition of John Lemkey. Serving as both Chief Operations Officer and Chief Financial Officer, John will now lead the company’s organizational and financial strategies while overseeing day-to-day operations.

I have no doubt John will have a significant impact in the lives of patients, our partners, and our team.”
John joins Annexus with more than 15 years of experience creating, building, investing in, and operating companies across various industries.
