Metopio starts 2023 on a strong trajectory and Baker will spearhead the next phase of rapid growth.

Baker will focus on expanding the sales infrastructure and increasing market penetration to meet ongoing demand for curated data, easy visualization tools and powerful analytics in core verticals such as healthcare, public health, and economic development.

“We are excited to partner with someone who is a proven leader with a record of growing companies across multiple go-to-market strategies,” said Will Snyder, Metopio CEO. “Rich’s understanding of innovation and technology in complex markets is key to meeting our aggressive growth targets and building a top-notch sales operation.”

Baker joins Metopio with more than 20 years of sales experience and a passion for building meaningful relationships with his customers, partners and team members.

He recently served as Vice President at MDClone, a company that transforms healthcare using synthetic data.  Prior to growing sales and revenue for MDClone, he was Chief Revenue Officer for CleanSlate UV, a biosafety startup.  Baker was also part of sales leadership at Qventus, Doctor on Demand and Vocera.

“As someone who has grown many companies over the years, I recognize the opportunity for Metopio to be a market leader delivering incredible value across an organization, not just in the analytics team,” said Baker. “I’m excited to take Metopio’s product-market fit and chart a course for exponential growth. I can’t wait to get started.”
