“Recruiting Darian to Broadsword was the next natural step in our evolution” Dalton said. “We wanted to expand into health care and strengthen our software product development and technology leadership capabilities, and Darian’s unique combination of skills, expertise, and leadership are exactly what we need to grow and succeed in the next decade. We are confident that Darian’s strategic vision for Broadsword will prepare us for the next decade and lead the way as our market continues to grow and evolve.”
