As CSG joins forces with Excellere Partners, the company is launching a "NEXT LEVEL" campaign to communicate its vision to employees, clients and industry colleagues.
"Although we are already setting new standards in medical claims management, CSG's accelerated growth trajectory challenges our team to achieve the "NEXT LEVEL" of diligence, ingenuity and professionalism. While I have worked tirelessly to position CSG for success, Craig Goldstein's track record makes him the obvious choice to lead us into the future. For the past 25 years, he has been at the forefront of many of our organization's strategic and operational decisions, forged many of our key alliances, and earned recognition as one of our industry's foremost thought leaders," said Morrone.
