Speaker: Dustin Johnson, Global Customer Experience Portfolio IT Leader – Avanos

In 2017 Halyard Health announced the divestiture of a business unit that included the sale of the company name and all of its IT systems. The remaining medical device manufacturing company, now known as Avanos Medical, had to stand up all new systems (websites, ERP, CRM, desktops, data center etc.) including replacing the existing North America ecommerce portal. Join us to hear about what made this process a success story, and how Avanos made these system transitions with an approach designed for scale and growth.

About the Speaker: As Customer Experience Portfolio IT leader, Dustin oversees the global technologies to support Avanos customers and customer-facing teams. This includes traditional CRM business areas, global analytics and R&D digital products initiatives. Prior to Avanos, Dustin’s 20 year career has involved leading business transformations as a leader in IT and Sales Organizations in technology related companies.

Avanos is a medical device company focused on delivering clinically superior breakthrough solutions that will help patients get back to the things that matter. We believe a difference in our products, combined with a difference in how we work, communicate and partner, can change the entire world. We are committed to creating the next generation of innovative healthcare solutions which will address our most important healthcare needs, such as reducing the use of opioids while helping patients move from surgery to recovery. We develop, manufacture and market recognized brands in more than 90 countries.
