Allscripts names new general counsel, adds board members

CHICAGO — Allscripts has announced additions to its senior leadership team and board of directors. 

Brian Farley has joined the company as SVP, general counsel and corporate secretary, effective May 28.  In addition, Allscripts added to its board Anita Pramoda and Michael Klayko, whose terms began May 21, 2013.

Farley brings more than 20 years of legal experience to Allscripts, including most recently serving as general counsel for Motorola Mobility's Home Business. In this role, Farley managed all legal matters and operations for the nearly $3.5 billion operation, including issues related to manufacturing, sales, IP, litigation and employment, culminating with Motorola Mobility and Google’s recent $2.35 billion sale of the Home Business to ARRIS. Farley managed a 30-person global legal and public policy team with employees located on four continents.

During his nearly eight-year tenure at Motorola and Motorola Mobility, Farley led multiple legal transactions, in addition to leading the global antitrust and regulatory approval process for the closing of the $12.5 billion sale of Motorola Mobility to Google in 2012.

Prior to becoming general counsel of the Home Business, Farley was a member of the staff of Motorola Mobility's president and served as his primary legal counsel. He has served as lead attorney in negotiating and advising Motorola's executive leadership teams on matters involving the separation of Motorola Mobility from the former Motorola, international joint ventures, restructuring deals, mergers and other major transactions.

Pramoda and Klayko have joined the Allscripts board, adding to its six existing members.

Pramoda was recently the CFO of Epic Systems Corp. Pramoda led Epic through a period of significant domestic market growth, its expansion into the governmental and international markets and its launch into mobile health IT solutions.

Prior to Epic, Pramoda helped commercialize self-healing packaging technology into wholesale, retail and military sectors at Ontech.

Pramoda is the co-founder of TangramCare, a technology-enabled care delivery system that affords extremely sick patients an opportunity to receive care in their homes, recover comfortably and convalesce with dignity. She is also an executive advisor at Technology Crossover Ventures.

Klayko joins Allscripts from Brocade Communications, where he served as CEO from 2005 until January 2013. Under his leadership, revenue grew from $525 million to $2.3 billion, while profit increased from $3 million to $570 million. Klayko joined Brocade in 2003 as CEO following the acquisition of Rhapsody Networks in March 2003, where he was also the CEO the prior two years.

Klayko also served in numerous other senior leadership roles throughout his career, including EVP of sales and marketing for McData Corp and SVP of Sales for EMC Corp. Klayko began his career at IBM, where he spent a decade of his career performing multiple assignments and management roles.
