Timothy VanAntwerp Named Director of Retail Services for VGM & Associates
on January 31, 2023
Timothy (Tim) VanAntwerp has joined VGM & Associates as the Director of Retail Services.
In his new role, Tim will focus on assisting members to meet their revenue goals through the implementation of retail sales.
Prior to joining VGM, Tim worked at Van’s Medical Equipment, a cumulation of over a hundred years of family business in Southwestern Michigan. Tim has experience inside and outside of hospital systems and has been a strong advocate for the DMEPOS industry throughout his career.
“At VGM, we strive to help our members thrive in the DMEPOS industry, and Tim will be a major asset to our members looking to explore the retail side of the business,” stated Mike Isaacson, SVP, Operations for VGM & Associates. “Additional product lines supporting DMEPOS but not traditionally reimbursed is a great additional source of revenue for providers, and we are thrilled that Tim will be able to share his expertise with our VGM members.”
Tim was thirteen when he started working in his father’s pharmacy. Adjusting spokes on rental wheelchairs and cleaning equipment are his first memories. This is where Tim’s love of retail started, and where he learned about taking care of the customer.
“As a longtime supporter of the DMEPOS industry and previous member of VGM myself, I am excited to assist members with their retail sales to meet their revenue goals and their customer’s needs,” stated Tim. “Through education, training, and company policies, I believe any DMEPOS provider can achieve patient direct sales equal to or greater than any other payors’ ‘slice of the pie’.”
