Premier Inc. Appoints Leigh Anderson to President of Performance Services

Premier Inc. (NASDAQ: PINC), a leading healthcare improvement company,
has promoted Leigh Anderson to President of Performance Services,
effective July 20.

In his new role, Anderson will have overall responsibility for Premier’s
Performance Services segment, including the continued development and
growth of the company’s enterprise-wide, cloud-based informatics
business, as well as Premier’s Performance Partners consulting unit. He
will continue to report to Michael J. Alkire, Chief Operating Officer.

As part of his promotion, Anderson will assume the responsibilities of
Kelly Rakowski, who resigned from her position as Senior Vice President
of Premier Performance Partners. One of Anderson’s key initiatives will
be the continued integration of Premier’s scalable technology and
analytics platforms with wrap-around performance improvement consulting
to create holistic solutions that address member needs. Premier expects
to commence a search for a new head of the Performance Partners
consultancy that will report directly to Anderson.

“Leigh’s proven expertise and demonstrated ability to operationalize
high-impact solutions for our members make him the natural choice to
lead Premier’s Performance Services segment and drive our business
forward,” said Alkire. “We appreciate Kelly’s contributions and the
foundation she helped establish for our consulting group, and we look
forward to continuing to build integrated, technology-enabled solutions
under Leigh’s leadership.”

Anderson, who has more than two decades of informatics experience in
corporate and provider settings, joined Premier in 2013. In his previous
role as Chief Operating Officer for Information and Technology Services
at Premier, Anderson ran the day-to-day operations of the informatics
business. Prior to joining Premier, he served in lead informatics roles
at Hospital Corporation of America, Health Trust, Global Healthcare
Exchange (GHX) and AT&T.
