Gregg Daversa

Biography

Mr. Daversa’s experience base in the imaging industry spans over 25 years and encompasses a multitude of progressively more complex and challenging assignments. Prior to joining West Physics, Mr. Daversa worked at one of the nation’s largest outpatient and mobile imaging organizations, Insight Health Corp. Mr. Daversa started his career as a technologist, and then moved on to roles as an operations manager, clinical and didactic instructor, Director of Regulatory & Quality Improvement, and finally as Vice President of Clinical and Technology Services. During his years at Insight, he made significant advancements in the performance of the multimillion-dollar operation by building business relationships, upgrading technology, and implementing best practices for safety protocols and regulatory compliance.

In his most senior role at Insight, Mr. Daversa managed technology assessment, equipment procurement, and regulatory program for 60 fixed imaging sites and 100 mobile MRI & PET/CT units operating in 25 states. He identified opportunities to expand revenue generation and supported the business development team for mobile and imaging center acquisitions.

Mr. Daversa is originally from Jamestown, NY.
