"I am thrilled to welcome Carine and Tom to our Board of Directors. Carine’s demonstrated history of leadership and innovation in the technology and finance sectors, coupled with Tom’s extensive experience and influential work with a variety of successful technology companies, align perfectly with LogicMark’s vision to transform the care economy and improve the safety and quality of life for all," said Chia-Lin Simmons, CEO of LogicMark. “We’re looking forward to their guidance and expertise as we take the next step in our evolution as a company.”

It’s inspiring to join an organization that is making meaningful strides in empowering everyone to embrace independence.”
