Fred Robertson, MD

It is with great pride that I announced the addition of Fred Robertson, MD to the TASC Board of Advisors (BOA). Our BOA helps guide and shape TASC and our mission, vision and values to achieve sustainable and continued growth. Over the years we have endeavored to appoint Board members with experience and expertise in the many different disciplines and industries crucial to the success of TASC.

Former BOA members include TASC Founder, the late Don Rashke, who had extensive experience in insurance and benefits administration, Frank Bastian, an attorney and Certified Public Accountant, Ronald Myren, who holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science, and the late Glen Pulver, a faculty member at University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Agricultural Economics.

Current BOA members include Steve Cretney, an Information Technology expert; Lori Cross, who specializes in strategy formulation, execution, and leadership development; Linda Hoff, a Certified Public Accountant; Michael Petrushka, with expertise in sales effectiveness, customer relationship management, and revenue cycle and supply chain management; Douglas Weisenberger, a long time TASC Provider with extensive experience in working with families and small businesses on financial issues; and Jeanan Yasiri Moe, who has worked in the healthcare industry for more than 14 years.

Dr. Robertson brings an entirely different perspective to the Board. He spent more than a dozen years as a practicing anesthesiologist before becoming the President and CEO of GE Marquette Medical Systems. After this post, he served as Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin, then as President and CEO of TomoTherapy Inc. in Middleton, Wisconsin.

Since retiring from TomoTherapy in 2011, Robertson has been a member of and now serves as Board Chairman for the Morgridge Institute for Research Board of Trustees. He also serves on the board of the University of Wisconsin Foundation, currently as Chair of the Governance and Nominating committee, whose primary functions are to oversee matters of corporate governance and to recommend prospective candidates for nomination to the Board.

Dr. Robertson earned his medical degree from and is a faculty member with the Department of Anesthesiology at UW–Madison’s School of Medicine & Public Health. He completed his internship and residency at the University of California-San Francisco, and also holds an MBA from San Diego State University.

I look forward to working with Dr. Robertson. I think the expertise that he brings rounds out our Board and will provide fresh insight into healthcare. With the rest of the TASC BOA we will continue to build TASC as an industry leader.
