The Durable Medical Equipment Repair and Training (DMERT) Group has announced Wayne Grau as the new Chair of their Executive Board.

“I am very happy to be working with a great group of rehab professionals that serve on the DMERT board,” said Grau. “The hallmark of the complex rehab industry has been the professionalism of our ATP’s and the service that trained rehab service technicians have offered our patients.”

In 2007, Wayne accepted a position with Managed Care Associates and his duties included VP roles in both legislative affairs and business development and supplier relations.
This past December Wayne accepted a position with MK Battery to lead the HME product category. Wayne works with the MK sales team to help better serve their customers and help with growing sales revenue. Wayne received his BBA from the University of North Texas and his MBA from Baylor University with a specialization in healthcare. Wayne has presented retail sales training at Medtrade 2020, numerous state association meetings, and via webinar to MED Group members.
“I hope to continue the great work that Greg Packer from U.S. Rehab created when he envisioned the DMERT Group,” Grau continued. “I look forward to working with the entire industry as we continue to strengthen the complex rehab industry into the future.”
