“As Tamarack continues its growth trajectory, it is critical that we have the infrastructure and personnel in place to manage all aspects of our operations – from delivering professional services to technology,” said Scott Nelson, president and CDO at Tamarack. “Mitch brings expertise that will be key to our ability to continue exceeding client expectations. His background in driving operational efficiencies and process optimization will be invaluable to Tamarack's continued success in a fast-paced and ever-evolving technology landscape.”

He was instrumental in increasing program launches for both startups from 31 to 244 in four years and led more than 650 client implementations over a six-year period.
Over his career, Peterson has developed a wealth of experience from positions at Boston Scientific, Thomson Prometric and GE Capital. At these organizations, he was involved in leading client delivery, program performance, and multiple technology teams, as well as client relationship management efforts.
