The health, material, and data science businesses made $8.6bn in revenue in 2023, with 100,00 channel partners and sales in more than 90 countries.

The new company will consist of 20,000 employees. Making up the leadership will be Bryan Hanson as Chief Executive Officer, Wayde McMillan as Chief Financial Officer, and Carrie Cox as Board Chair.
