Before Davita, she served as the director of business development for Keas Health Management in San Francisco, where she was responsible for managing the sales team, distribution channel partners and new business leads to drive growth. Harte earned her BS in human biology from Stanford University and her MBA from Harvard Business School.
Lowder joins CCRM Fertility from InnovAge where he served as the senior vice president of technology and managed the IT strategies, administration and expansion as the company doubled in size. Prior to InnovAge, Lowder worked with Kaiser Permanente as the director of mergers, acquisitions and organization change management. Before that, he served as the vice president of infrastructure and operations for Prologis.
