Pro-Change Behavior Systems, Inc. today announced the promotion of Dr. Sara S. Johnson and Dr. Kerry E. Evers, two of its senior executives, to the position of co-President & CEO. This change followed the recent acquisition of the company by Drs. Johnson and Evers, and represents the natural succession following Dr. Janice M. Prochaska’s recent retirement as President and CEO. Drs. Janice and James O. Prochaska will continue to serve as consultants to the company. Pro-Change has experienced steady growth under Dr. Janice Prochaska’s tenure and is well positioned for significant continued growth and success with Drs. Johnson and Evers at the helm.
Pro-Change will retain its employees to ensure continuity of operations and a seamless transition. Most of the employees have worked at Pro-Change for several years and have played an integral role in the company’s success.
“I am truly confident as I pass the reins over to Kerry and Sara that they will continue to move the business forward and take Pro-Change to new heights. Their diverse experience and strong leadership will benefit Pro-Change, its employees, partners, and customers,” said Dr. Janice Prochaska. “I look forward to remaining involved as a consultant.”
“We are honored and excited to lead Pro-Change. With the solid foundation built by Jan Prochaska, we look forward to propelling Pro-Change to the next level and advancing our implementation of evidence-based best practices of behavior change in collaboration with our partners,” said Dr. Johnson. “On behalf of the entire team, we sincerely thank Jan for her invaluable contributions throughout her career at Pro-Change. She has contributed immeasurably to our organization through her leadership. We wish her all the best.”
Dr. Evers said, “Our primary goal is to continue to provide best-in-class behavior change solutions in tandem with providing a caring, supportive environment for our greatest asset, our employees. Pro-Change will continue to operate with the excellence that has become a hallmark of our company culture for nearly two decades.”
