Patagonia Health Promotes Prasad Naik as VP of Finance

Patagonia Health, an Integrated Electronic Health Record, Practice Management, and Billing software company, promotes Prasad Naik as Vice President of Finance. 

Patagonia Health grows each year, winning awards like Triangle Business Fast 50, and Ashok Mathur, CEO and Founder, says a VP of Finance was the next step in scaling. 

“A strong Finance function is one of the pillars that Patagonia Health needed for our stage of company growth,” says Mathur. 

Prasad joined Patagonia Health two years ago as a Controller and successfully built a finance department in collaboration with Frank Waterhouse (Part-time CFO) and Lifaver Trujillo (Staff Accountant). Along with creating standards for financial goals, Prasad identified key areas of improvement and assisted in driving organizational changes to achieve company goals. 

As Patagonia Health continues to scale each year, Prasad will lead business forecasting, manage accounting and payroll functions, and provide visible financial insights to assist in decision-making. Additionally, this change will ensure that our customers continue to receive timely and accurate billing.

Prasad takes on this role as a finance veteran with 25+ years of experience, including financial and commercial operations, corporate development, decision support and analysis, and project management. 

He says, “This promotion was a validation for the finance department that the process improvements and financial discipline that we introduced over the past 2 years is facilitating in improving financial performance and quality of decision making and ultimately increase stakeholder value.”
