Magnus Spotlight - Leadership Team

Posted by Marlene Chotkowski on Feb 28, 2018 11:57:27 AM

Not only does Magnus have valuable team members across all departments, but our Directors keep Magnus growing and improving each week. This month, we’ve chatted with the Dynamic Duo - our Directors of the Sales and Marketing teams, Inese Hoover and Dino Skerlos.

Inese, our Marketing Director, keeps the team busy, but organized. While spreading the word about Magnus through multiple campaign channels, and bringing in leads from new schools, she keeps the team on their toes with fresh ideas for generating new business.

Dino, our Director of Sales, works with the Account Executives to show prospective clients the value of implementing the Magnus solution at their schools. Dino has already helped Magnus grow significantly in the short time he has been with the team.

Magnus Health - noun; MAG-nəs /helTH/
MagnusHealth-logo-orange-stacked-noBG.jpg

  1. A one-of-a-kind cloud-based computer software that is the most innovative way to collect, track, and manage school health information.
  2. A team of unique, hard-working individuals, who have a mutual passion to improve student health and safety so students can focus on learning.
  3. A magnificent place to work.

When you pass by the Magnus Health office in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, you would not know that inside, there is a group of people who are committed to ensuring safety in schools throughout the nation. You also would not be able to guess the color of some of the interior walls... Anyone? Anyone? C’mon, they are painted bright orange, of course!

Not only does Magnus consist of valuable team members across all departments, but our Directors and Managers keep Magnus growing and improving week-in and week-out.

Our leadership team is made up of five dedicated, passionate, and professional Directors. With the start of 2018, we’ve decided to highlight them each so not only our wonderful customers, but everyone in our industry, can get to know them!

We will kick off the Magnus Leadership spotlight with our CEO, Brian Biddulph-Krentar. Brian currently resides in West Chester, Pennsylvania, and travels to the Raleigh Headquarters at least twice a month. Brian has been in the healthcare industry for quite some time. Actually, we’ll let him speak for himself!

Deidra and her team assist parents and college students with navigating the Magnus system to ensure they have a successful experience. They are ready to help and answer every end user question!

This year, we are starting something new at Magnus Health by recognizing an “Employee of the Quarter.” This person must be someone who demonstrates Magnus’ core values, which include: teamwork, positive energy, and focusing on what matters. At Magnus, we use the phrases “Make it Happen” and “Make it Better” constantly, to remind our team to not only be proactive and put forth a great effort, but to also be problem solvers, to think outside of the box, and to contribute to improving our company every day. This quarter, our company chose Martika Hedgepeth as the Employee of the Quarter. We sat down with Martika and chatted about what it takes to earn this title.

As a concussion sufferer and author of “The Ghost in My Brain: How a Concussion Stole My Life and How the New Science of Brain Plasticity Helped Me Get It Back” Dr. Elliott knows first hand about living with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
