Joni Fernbaugh Brings Wealth of Government Health Strategy Expertise to Noblis Business Development

Fernbaugh’s 30 year history in strategy and planning for the federal health industry brings practical expertise to Noblis’ Health Innovation (HI) client missions

FALLS CHURCH, VA.—March 7, 2016—Noblis, Inc., announced that Joni Fernbaugh has joined the organization as Director of Business Development and subject matter expert for the Health Innovation (HI) mission area. In this role, she will apply her broad federal health strategy and acquisition experience to further establish Noblis as a leader in the federal health industry.

Before joining Noblis, Fernbaugh oversaw Strategic and Clinical programs for IMS Health—supporting their business development needs by building a robust pipeline of contacts, qualifying and winning several key capture opportunities for the company, and establishing herself as an influential voice in the federal health market. Fernbaugh has also held principal positions with Unisys as the business development executive for their federal healthcare accounts—Military Health Systems (MHS), Veterans Affairs (VA), and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

“I’m truly inspired and invigorated by the Noblis leadership’s vision for the future of our Health Innovation mission area and the value placed on maintaining a sterling reputation,” explains Fernbaugh. “Working with such an impressive team of well-regarded experts, I’m confident that we will continue to shape Noblis’ capabilities to maximize the benefit for our clients.”

Coupling skills amassed working with large system integrators and management consulting firms, and with 10 plus years of fast-paced, hands-on experience as a trauma and critical care nurse, Fernbaugh launched her own woman-owned business development firm in 2007, earning a 90 percent contract win rate supporting large and mid-tier companies pursuing federal healthcare opportunities. Her ability to build innovative solutions and produce enduring strategic plans resulted in the capture of more than $600 million in task order contracts across MHS, VA, and HHS.

“We are delighted to welcome Joni to our team,” said Pat Brosey, Vice President of Business Development and Marketing, Noblis. “Her practical experience managing oversight of federal health strategic planning and operations will serve as an asset to our health clients and the missions that are most critical to them now and in the future.”

Fernbaugh holds a Bachelors in Nursing from Duquesne University and a Masters in Information Systems Technology from George Washington University. Fernbaugh is active in federal healthcare industry groups to include the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and Professional Services Council, where she serves on the board of the MHS VISION team.
