“I’m honored and humbled to take on this role at Revive, and look forward to continuing the agency’s success in partnership with an amazing leadership team and an incredible staff,” said Bevolo. “Healthcare has continued to experience a level of disruption unknown to the industry – starting well before Covid-19. At Revive, we embrace the chaos in the healthcare industry, and help those with a similar mindset reimagine their roles, reinvent their businesses, and transform their impact on health in the U.S. We believe that those brands who can make their way through the upheaval will be the healthcare leaders of tomorrow.”
