MedSend recently welcomed John Boal, DSc, and John Simontacchi to the ministry’s development team.
“I am pleased to add two highly experienced and successful development professionals to our senior staff,” said MedSend President & CEO, Rick Allen. “John Boal is a proven development leader and mentor who brings many years of development experience to the team, while John Simontacchi has deep roots in the business community. He has had a successful career in sales and marketing, as well as leading large business units within Fortune 500 companies.”
Allen noted that both men are deeply rooted in their Christian faith. Boal is an ordained pastor and Simontacchi has served on his local church elder and mission boards and has also been a Community Bible Study leader.
“I am excited to join the Medsend Team and have the opportunity to help medical professionals take the good news of Jesus Christ to a lost world,” said Boal, who will serve as Senior Vice President of Development. Simontacchi, who will also serve as Senior Vice President of Development, agreed.
“Many doors are opening for an increasing number of medical professionals to extend God’s love through global healthcare,” he said.
As a reflection of this increase, MedSend’s requests for grants have grown over 200% in the last five years, according to Allen.
“These highly talented men join us at a critical time when experience and discernment are required to meet the challenges ahead,” he said.
