Three New Directors Join MTM
MTM, Inc. announced today that in an effort to support its ongoing growth and strengthen the organization’s ability to serve its clients, it has added three new director-level staff members to its management team. Director of Process Improvement Tammy Puyear, Director of Financial Planning and Analysis Dana Wilkerson, and Director of Business Implementation Pamela Cook will assist MTM as it implements new large contracts and seeks to streamline its overall operations.
In 2014, MTM expects annual revenue to exceed $275 million, a 63% increase over 2013. This additional revenue can be attributed to the expansion of new service offerings, as well as new statewide non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) contracts in Mississippi and West Virginia. The Mississippi contract, which begins July 1, has an annual value of $40 million, while the West Virginia program is set to begin in the fall and holds an annual value of approximately $30 million.
“As we continue to grow at a rapid pace to serve new clients across the nation, MTM is focused on consolidating and streamlining operations for optimal efficiency and productivity,” said Alaina Maciá, MTM President and CEO. “Tammy, Dana, and Pamela are strong leaders who will ensure MTM improves both internal and external practices to continually meet the needs of our clients and their members.”
