Phoenix-based Eldorado, a division of MphasiS, and a leading provider of robust benefit administration solutions, announced today that Sally Else will succeed Eldorado’s retiring President, Tom Castleberry. Else, currently Eldorado’s Executive Vice President of Business Development, is expected to take on her new responsibilities beginning June 1, 2012.
Sally Else brings over 20 years of domestic and international information services leadership across multiple markets, including telecommunications and financial services. She began working with Eldorado in 2010, assisting in the development of the company’s overall business strategy before assuming the Business Development role in March of last year. Before joining Eldorado, Else held senior positions at CSG Systems and First Data Corporation where she was responsible for growing businesses ranging from several million to over a billion dollars in annual revenue.
“Eldorado is at an inflection point, poised for strong expansion at a very pivotal time in the healthcare market. I am very excited at the opportunity to lead this business. As the market moves to one of real-time transaction processing, highly integrated solutions and an increasingly demanding regulatory and compliance environment, Eldorado’s products are positioned to support the market needs. As the number of clients on both our HEALTHpac and Javelina platforms continue to grow, I look forward to working with our clients, partners and the Eldorado team to achieve significant things,” said Sally Else. “With great appreciation for all he has done, we wish Tom well and celebrate his strong leadership over the decade. He made so many significant contributions to Eldorado. I look forward to his continued support,” added Else.
Tom Castleberry is widely credited with leading Eldorado to market excellence by his vision and leadership in the development and delivery of Eldorado’s next generation platform, Javelina, the company’s award-winning payer solution recently awarded best ROI at the 2011 Healthcare IT Summit. Castleberry will remain available in a consulting role to assist the Eldorado executive team in areas of strategy and key client and partner relationships.
“Delivering a product is a holistic experience – it’s not just the software its building all the elements that supports delivery and continuous improvement that makes a product. It has been a rewarding experience to be a part of the Eldorado employee and client community for the last dozen years. Given our products, employees and reputation in the marketplace, I believe Eldorado will continue to grow and maintain its position as a major player in the healthcare payer market,” said Tom Castleberry.
