Before being selected as CEO in May 2020, Petrone held leadership roles across prominent vendor organizations for twenty (20) years. For almost fourteen (14) years, under contract he served as the US Vice President of MDI Solutions where he led a national team of a dozen of more integration consultants and healthcare professionals providing innovative software integration and service solutions for healthcare.

Prior to MDI, Petrone was instrumental for growth of the healthcare divisions for Mitem Corporation, and SCI Healthcare Group. In the role of Vice President at SCI and his professional consultants were all solely responsible for the successful consolidation of multiple copies of McKesson EHR systems, sales of the IBM iSeries line of computers, and all integration solutions for Hawaii Health Systems Corporation (consisting of twelve (12) hospitals). Under his leadership, SCI became an IBM Systems Partner, contracted with SeeBeyond as a subcontractor comprising of a contingent eGate integration workforce supporting a client base.

In addition, Petrone is an IBM trained systems consultant and held various technical systems roles for clients in healthcare, manufacturing, and distribution firms like International Paper, Kendall, Winthrop Financial, National Gypsum, IBM Rochester Development Lab, Howard Johnsons, Aetna, UMass Medical, Hawaii Health Systems Corporation, SeeBeyond, and several other Fortune 500 companies.

Upon graduating from Worcester State University with a BS in Biology and Minor in Computer Science, Petrone began his career at UMass Medical School as a Meditech Mumps/MIIS programmer. He then entered the IBM world as a System/38 and S/370 systems programmer and held varied positions in manufacturing Infor XA, BPCS ERP, and JD Edwards. Petrone also served as CIO for National Gypsum.

Upon recognizing that there was a great need to exchange technical information, Petrone formed a regional IBM System/38 regional user group, he approached IBM’s Richard Grenham to help organize the New England System/38 User Group called NESTU. NESTU expanded its reach for System/3, System/36, System/38, and AS/400 iSeries users from the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States. With IBM’s help, NESTU was able to hold monthly sessions throughout New England cities and were able to present IBM speakers such as John Sears, Susan Aldrich, Skip Marchesani, Jack Rioni, Richard Grenham, Claire Pellitier, and several other IBM resources.
