Diversity MBA Media recently announced its list of the Top 100 Under 50 executive leaders in corporate America and this year’s class of emerging leaders and rising stars includes our CEO Mike Simmons. He was spotlighted from a pool of several hundred nominees for reaching benchmarks and making a difference in their respective industry.
The award is unique because candidates must have an advanced degree or certification, can only receive the recognition once and must be age 50 or younger.
“I find that the leaders of today are more intentional than ever before,” said Pamela McElvane, CEO of P & L Holding Co., which includes Diversity MBA Media Group, “They are clear on what impact they want to make and how to do it. These leaders have demonstrated community commitment and are unapologetic about driving change in their realm. They influence others to be the best they can be while creating ways to stay relevant and innovative. These are the leaders of today and tomorrow,” McElvane said.
Mike is the CEO of andros, the first and only technology company to provide healthcare network development and credentialing services in one platform.

Mike’s vision for andros is to make healthcare administration easier, simpler, and faster for all parties—with the ultimate goal of improving access to quality healthcare.
