AlayaCare announces new Chief Product and Technology Officer


AlayaCare is excited to announce the appointment of Andrew McDonald, who has joined the company as its Chief Product and Technology Officer. With over 20 years of experience in leading product teams in high growth companies, McDonald will oversee the evolution of the AlayaCare product portfolio.

Driving innovation and transformation in healthcare technology

Andrew holds a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo, Ontario, and will work in both the Montreal and Toronto offices. Before joining AlayaCare, Andrew held senior positions at Alcatel-Lucent, CENX, and Kinaxis where he was the Chief Product Officer.

“The passion for innovation at AlayaCare to create technology that advances the digital transformation of the aged care market matches my own ambitions in assuring the best technology and solutions are delivered to provide better outcomes for our customers and their clients,” said Andrew.

“One of the most differentiating advantages of AlayaCare is its modern tech stack—giving us the advantage to move fast in a market mired down in legacy, antiquated systems. I am happy to be aboard and help steer us toward growth and success,” he added.

Enhancing care delivery by unlocking the power of data

In his new role, Andrew will organize the AlayaCare development teams to make the right strategic allocations in product development that address the biggest market opportunities to delight and win business.

“We welcome Andrew to the AlayaCare team at a critical time when the care industry is in need of an intuitive software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform to solve complex staffing and care delivery needs, while leveraging data intelligence to drive insights for better outcomes,” said Adrian Schauer, CEO and Founder of AlayaCare. “Andrew’s experience in building and managing high performing teams will accelerate our go-to-market differentiation and delivery.”

Here at AlayaCare, we are committed to driving better outcomes by empowering aged care, disability and home care providers. We are harnessing the power of technology to transform the future of healthcare – and our people make this possible. AlayaCare is led by an extraordinary group of people who are passionate about what they do.
