Baltimore, MD—Burnalong today announced their CTO, Ron Burr, has been named a winner in the 2022 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group.
Ron Burr, Burnalong’s CTO, has been instrumental in furthering our machine learning and product innovation. His roles prior to Burnalong have been in engineering management and architecture building hands-on technology with innovation responsibilities, mixed in with quality and compliance.
Burr brings exemplary problem-solving to Burnalong and in-depth knowledge of the medical field which has led to numerous product innovations. His expertise has helped Burnalong expand our machine learning capabilities to provide improved recommendations to our members, resulting in more personalization and increased engagement.
Burnalong provides holistic health, fitness, and wellness programming to individuals who are historically not engaged in wellbeing habits, thus Ron’s product innovations have played a key role in creating personalized wellness journeys, built on AI and machine learning, that encourage healthy behavioral changes and introduce relevant programming suggestions to bolster long-term growth.
“With great pride and gratitude, we extend a warm congratulations to our CTO, Ron Burr,” says Mike Kott, co-CEO of Burnalong. “Through his efforts, Burnalong is able to more effectively deliver relevant health and wellness classes to influence the quality of user lives, reduce healthcare costs with preventative care, and extend holistic care that addresses the entirety of user wellness–physical, mental, emotional, and financial.”
“Innovation is driving growth in the global economy,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring Burnalong as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress.”
