Last week Intermedix, a Nashville-based company focused on technological solutions for healthcare needs, promoted Kyle Wailes to CFO. Wailes has worked with Intermedix since 2012, helping to improve strategic growth and expand Intermedix’s global presence. His previous work includes financial roles at Thom Weisel’s Thomas Weisel Partners, George Aitken-Davies’s Altaris Capital Partners, and Citigroup.

Wailes has a long history of work specializing in healthcare information technology as well as investment banking and private equity. Since joining Intermedix as its vice president of strategy, his work has directed and improved the company’s growth and organization.

“Kyle has played an important role across our enterprise and on our leadership team and couldn’t be better suited to assume the role of CFO,” said Intermedix CEO Joel Portice. “His keen strategic thinking and experience in M&A are perfect for Intermedix at this phase of our business.”

“I’m honored to take on this leadership role at such an important and exciting time for the company,” Wailes said. “I look forward to leading our financial planning efforts as we execute our long-term strategy and strengthen our position in key markets.”
