Christopher Young is excited about the company’s unique tech and ready to continue helping people through ROAR’s wearable product.
Christopher Young has always loved tech, but couldn’t find opportunities in his early career that fulfilled his goal of helping people. The first time he felt like he was making a positive impact was when he worked at DaVita HealthCare Partners and launched a proprietary electronic medical records system.
Now, Young has joined wearable safety device company ROAR as its new CTO as of last week, which he said “[connects his] very strong internal passion of helping people, doing that through tech, doing that through data and internally and externally doing that through collaboration.” The company’s AlwaysOn workplace panic button aims to ensure safety for healthcare, hospitality and other workers.
