Rick Voight, former national sales manager of retail Publishing at Hewlett-Packard, has joined Duluth, Georgia-based SoloHealth, a leader in self-directed health care, as vice-president channel distribution.
Technology company SoloHealth develops and deploys interactive health screening kiosks in an effort to empower consumers to be proactive about their health. The company’s kiosks provide free health screenings and recommendations for follow-up care, leading to prevention and lower health care costs.
Voight is responsible for market penetration and distribution of the company’s SoloHealth Station, an innovative new solution that allows consumers in high-traffic retail environments to test their vision, blood pressure, and body mass; obtain health and wellness information; and store a history of their results that can be accessed at the consumer’s convenience.
This health and wellness ecosystem, a ‘front porch’ to health care, allows retailers, manufacturers, doctors, insurance companies and others to reach customers in a highly personal and targeted manner.
Voight brings 25 years of experience in delivering technology solutions to retailers and alternative channel partners. He played an integral role in the creation and growth of the retail publishing division at HP, which has achieved chain-wide equipment and Internet connected deployments at HEB, Meijer, Duane Reade, and Walmart, representing approximately 5,000 stores and 15,000 kiosks throughout North America.
Voight earlier spent 18 years at Kodak in various sales, marketing, and new business creation positions with responsibilities that included packaged goods, services, kiosks, and other capital equipment. During this time, he forged exclusive agreements with Publix, Circuit City, Kinko’s, Amazon.com, and United Western Grocers. He also negotiated and coordinated a $1 billion contract with CVS/pharmacy, which included placement of kiosks in more than 3,000 stores in four months, the largest-ever photo kiosk roll-out at the time.
