WESTON, Fla., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- LogiMedix is pleased to announce that it has expanded its executive management team with the additions of Gregory L. Dupuis as Vice President of Corporate Development & Sales and Richard Butler as Vice President of Operations. With experience and knowledge in both healthcare and middle-market growth companies, these two key executives are an excellent addition to LogiMedix and highlight its commitment to increased success, expansion, and industry leadership.

Commenting on their arrival, Robert Kusher, President and CEO of LogiMedix, stated, "These industry-experienced professionals see value in what LogiMedix has to offer today, and believe that a great deal of opportunity lies ahead for the company. Mr. Dupuis will help shape the company's sales and marketing efforts, as well as seek to establish corporate partnerships and identify companies for us to acquire. Mr. Butler brings a wealth of experience in reimbursement, compliance, regulatory affairs, and customer service. I see the addition of Greg and Richard to our staff as not only strengthening our management team, but a vote of confidence by two industry experts in the path that lies ahead for LogiMedix."

Mr. Dupuis and Mr. Butler both come to LogiMedix from MP TotalCare, Inc., a Tampa, FL-based homecare provider of respiratory, diabetes and other direct- to-consumer medical supplies. During their tenure with MP TotalCare, Mr. Dupuis and Mr. Butler were both part of the executive management team, helping to grow the company from revenues of $25 million to over $125 million (prior to the acquisition of Gericare) in less than three years.

Mr. Dupuis brings over 14 years of corporate development, sales, and finance experience to LogiMedix, including an extensive background in healthcare and middle-market growth companies and an in-depth knowledge of mergers and acquisitions. While at MP TotalCare, Mr. Dupuis helped establish the company's banking relationships, coordinated its acquisition program, and successfully launched diabetes products offerings through two of their national sales channels. Previously, he was an integral member of the acquisition programs for both Lincare, Inc. and NMC Homecare (W.R. Grace & Co.).

Mr. Butler brings over 13 years of healthcare experience to LogiMedix, including an extensive background in operations, billing and reimbursement, and corporate healthcare laws. He also sits on several governmental advisory boards. Prior to serving as Vice President of Reimbursement, Corporate Compliance Officer and Vice President of Operations during his tenure with MP TotalCare, Mr. Butler was a Regional Manager for Apria Healthcare, Inc. and also held various positions with Lincare, Inc.
