Data and analytics specialist STR has named Jon Timmons as the company’s new chief operations officer.
Timmons joins STR after a four-year stint at eviCore health care. His first two years with the company were split between director of business intelligence and data warehousing, then he became VP for technology with a focus on enterprise data management. Following a company merger, Timmons’ VP role shifted to data services, and he managed all data services and implementations, supporting health plan customers, members and revenue across multiple application platforms and product lines.
“Jon’s project management and business intelligence skills are excellent fits for STR’s already talented senior staff,” said Amanda Hite, STR’s president. “Adding Jon’s talent to the mix on top of the recent addition of Scott Hendryx as our CIO gives us more firepower to continue solidifying our global operational footprint as we grow our business around the world. STR is completely focused on responding to our clients’ evolving needs, and bringing this type of talent to our team is a vital part of ensuring that our aggressive business plan remains on track.”
Prior to joining eviCore, Timmons held various IT positions of increasing responsibility with General Electric, from June 1996 to December 2011. In his final role as IT director in the services group for GE Aviation, Timmons led an enterprise analytics program supporting multi-billion-dollar service revenues for commercial jet engines.
“I am very excited to be joining the team at STR,” Timmons said. “With more than 30 years of success in benchmarking and analysis for the hotel sector, STR is a proven performer with an excellent portfolio of products. As we continue to grow our core business internationally, and expand into other industry sectors like self storage and health clubs, we will be presented with many interesting opportunities and challenges. I expect that my experience in managing rapid growth and delivering new business capabilities will be an asset to the company, and I look forward to being part of that journey with the STR team.”
