Southlake Consulting Firm Wetrich Group Announces New President

Carl Meyer succeeds James G. Wetrich immediately, the advisory and consulting firm said.

The Wetrich Group LLC, a Southlake-based comprehensive advisory and consulting firm focused on the healthcare industry, has appointed Carl Meyer as president, succeeding James G. Wetrich, effective immediately.

Meyer joined The Wetrich Group in 2013, and most recently was executive vice president, the firm said.

Meyer said he’s honored in being chosen to lead The Wetrich Group, a firm celebrated for its over twenty years of excellence in overcoming challenges and unlocking growth opportunities for clients seeking transformative change.

“I’m thrilled to build on the remarkable legacy of The Wetrich Group,” Meyer said, acknowledging the significant impact of Wetrich’s achievements on the company and the wider industry.

Meyer expressed deep respect for The Wetrich Group’s legacy, noting its two-decade history of navigating obstacles and uncovering growth opportunities for clients aiming for comprehensive organizational transformation.

“I am honored to be given the opportunity to build upon The Wetrich Group’s impressive legacy,” Meyer said in a statement. He acknowledged the lasting impact of Wetrich’s “footprint” on the company and the broader industry.

“[His] accomplishments have left an impressionable footprint,” the newly appointed president said, adding, “I couldn’t be more excited to propel our mission into the future.”

Having spent a number of years in senior level positions developing relationships and managing clients’ GPO, IDN, RPC, distribution, & 3PL relationships within an increasingly complex health care environment, Meyer previously held the position of vice president of national accounts and distributor relations for BSN Medical Inc.

While there, he assisted its transition from a direct supply chain to a distribution centric and group purchasing aligned organization. Also, Meyer was responsible for growing sales through these channels, which drove substantial operational efficiencies and operating cost reductions.

“Ten years ago, [Meyer] joined the firm and has been an invaluable asset to the Wetrich team and has provided superior counsel to our client health care organizations,” Wetrich said in a statement. “His vast wealth of diversified experience and expansive knowledge base of the health care industry are amongst the finest in the market.”

He added: Those who know [Meyer] will agree that he is one of the most well-respected, passionate, and dynamic leaders, and I hold every confidence that he will play an instrumental role in providing and implementing strategically sound and innovative solutions for clients.”

Wetrich, an executive with more than 40 years of healthcare industry expertise, a certified executive coach, a member of the ICF professional coaches’ board, and a Wall Street Journal bestselling author, founded The Wetrich Group, a subsidiary of The Wetrich Group of Companies, in 2001.

During his career, Wetrich has provided consultancy services to more than 100 global organizations.

The firm said that after his departure from The Wetrich Group, Wetrich will transition to a CEO mentor role with Building Champions, a professional training and coaching organization headquartered in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
