CARLSBAD, Calif., March 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- San Diego-based corporate wellness innovator Sonic Boom Wellness is proud to announce the addition of Ryan Van Der Vorste to its executive leadership team as Chief Operating Officer (COO). Van Der Vorste joins Sonic Boom from Cerner Corporation, where he served as Director of Wellness Operations within the Population Health Organization, responsible for more than $30 million in annual revenue. Van Der Vorste brings immense expertise in the wellness industry, as well as experience guiding a small company in tremendous growth.
"We're fastening our seat belts, because 2019 is a year of change and explosive growth for Sonic Boom," said Danna Korn, co-founder and CEO. "Recent massive market consolidation has created favorable positioning for us in the market. That combined with years of refining and maturing our program, means we're now ready for someone of Ryan's caliber to help us catapult Sonic Boom."
Already among the fastest-growing private firms in the country as recognized by Inc. Magazine, this strategic hire is at the foundation of a plan to make dramatic moves that will enhance Sonic Boom's already-dominant position in the wellness space.
Van Der Vorste brings nearly a decade of experience in the wellness industry. Van Der Vorste's wellness career began at Carlsbad-based PureWellness as Director of Operations. He played an integral role in helping scale operations while doubling the number of clients for three consecutive years, and growing revenue 10 times over. PureWellness was acquired by Cerner in 2013, during which time Van Der Vorste facilitated the seamless integration of the two operations. He was selected into Cerner's Population Health Leadership Development Program, and sat on both the Change Revenue Board and Employer Advisory Council. Before his time at PureWellness and Cerner, Van Der Vorste co-founded and served as Vice President of Operations for Showtime Marketing, Inc. Prior to that business, he was the National Account Manager for American Golf Corporation.
"I am thrilled to once again join a small and agile wellness company looking to make a big difference in the corporate health and wellness landscape," said Van Der Vorste. "The passion and excitement that the owners, the leadership team, and the rest of the staff show is infectious and certainly passes through to their clientele."
