Brillient said Monday that RJ Kolton and Richard Jacik will also take on the respective roles of chief growth officer and general manager for health in line with Strasser’s promotion.

In his new role, Kolton will lead Brillient’s mergers and acquisition operations as well as other functions related to product development and business opportunity identification.

Jacik, previously a principal at IMI Services, brings over 25 years of federal sales experience and will lead the development of Brillient’s strategic programs for health clients.
