In 2014, Cadient was acquired by Cognizant, a leading provider of information technology, consulting, and business process outsourcing services.
Between 1999 and 2004, Wray was North American President at Ogilvy Healthworld, where he led the consumer, professional and relationship marketing divisions of the agency, helping to foresee the impact that digital would have upon healthcare communications.

In 2017, CloudMine added Redox, a leader in cloud-based healthcare integration and API services, and Infor, a leading provider of business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, to the company's roster of partners. CloudMine also tapped Medical Web Experts as a development partner capable of introducing medical practices, hospitals, pharmacies, and device manufacturers to the prospective client pipeline.
CloudMine co-founder Brendan McCorkle, who has served as CEO since the company's founding in 2011, will now serve as President and Chief Innovation Officer. "Steve has the right mix of business acumen and creative experience to execute our vision," said McCorkle.
