Allscripts Changes CEOs; President Steps Down

Allscripts named its board member Paul M. Black, 52, as new President and CEO, replacing longtime CEO Glen Tullman, 54. Black was appointed to the Allscripts’ board earlier this year. Black most recently served as Operating Executive of Genstar Capital, a private equity firm, and Senior Advisor at New Mountain Finance Corporation, an investment management company. Previously, he spent more than 12 years with Cerner in various executive positions, retiring as COO in 2007. Prior to Cerner, Black spent 12 years at IBM in a number of senior sales, marketing and professional services leadership positions.

Tullman, who led Allscripts for 15 years, stepped down from his position as CEO and from his board seat. Prior to joining Allscripts, he was CEO of Enterprise Systems, a leading healthcare-information services company providing resource-management solutions to large, integrated healthcare networks. Before that, he served in a number of management roles, including president and COO of CCC Information Services, a provider of information systems to the property and casualty insurers.

Lee Shapiro, 56, the company's president, is also stepping down but will serve the CEO as a consultant for up to six months. He joined Allscripts in 2000 and has served as the company’s COO, and has directed Allscripts M&A activities, including the acquisition of Channelhealth, Advanced Imaging Concepts and RxCentric, as well as Allscripts strategic relationships, such as those with Microsoft, HP, and IDX.
