Citra’s Client Success Team, led by Rick Walker, provides a designated Client Success Manager who works collaboratively with our clients monitoring needs, setting program and solution objectives, and keeping clients informed of Citra’s growth and development.

We recently sat down with ‘Walker’ (as he is affectionately known at Citra), Vice President of Client Success, and asked him a few questions. Here's what he had to say...


walker-hiking.jpgHow long have you been at Citra?
I have been with Citra (previously IntelliCare and Sirona Health) for a total of 18 years. 

How did you come to your career in healthcare?
I started in healthcare right out of college, initially with a physician practice management consulting group (Professional Management Services) where I served for 5 years. After that, I spent the next 5 years in public accounting healthcare consulting (Ernst & Young) and then went on to work for 14 years in revenue cycle management (Medical Management of New England/Medaphis). For 18 years and counting, my home is here, with Citra, where I enjoy a family-like bond with my co-workers, all of whom share the passion of delivering on client expectations, our clients’ patients and members have the care they deserve. 

What is your favorite thing about your job?
I enjoy the variety. Every day presents new challenges and opportunities and I get the opportunity to work with a great team of dedicated professionals. 

Tell us about your family.  My wife, Mary, is a real-estate agent and we have two adult sons. Taylor is an action sports cinematographer and Registered Maine Guide and Nathaniel is a former Marine, gunsmith, and service dog trainer.   

What are your hobbies? Hiking, Fishing, Camping, Sailing, Biking, Skiing, Snowshoeing, Target Shooting

What is something about you that would surprise people? I am quite the handyman and enjoy woodworking, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical projects.  

What is your favorite quote? “When you're at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.” - Theodore Roosevelt
