CitiusTech names new CEO to succeed outgoing co-founder

CitiusTech, a Princeton-based provider of health care technology services, named Bhaskar Sambasivan as its new CEO, the company announced Tuesday.

Sambasivan joined CitiusTech in May as its president. He will succeed Rizwan Koita, co-founder and CEO, and will assume the role Monday.

Prior to joining CitiusTech, Sambasivan served as president of patient services and chief strategy officer of Eversana, a life sciences company. Before that, he spent nearly 15 years as Cognizant’s global head of life sciences, where the company’s business grew 30-fold.

“Bhaskar is an immensely accomplished health care industry leader with a clear vision for digital innovation and a 25-year track record of scaling technology-enabled health care businesses,” Dr. William Winkenwerder, chairman of CitiusTech, said in a prepared statement. “We are excited that his ideas, insights and strategy will further accelerate CitiusTech’s success and growth momentum.”

Jagdish Moorjani and Koita, who co-founded CitiusTech in 2005, will continue to advise CitiusTech as members of the board, and will remain stakeholders in the company.
