A 25-year sales veteran, Oakes has a history of driving double-digit growth by building a servant leadership sales organization that clients want to work with, want to follow and, ultimately, trust. He has successfully led sales teams for Fortune 500 and private equity-owned companies across multiple healthcare disciplines. Passionate about healthcare and senior living, Oakes joined Sentrics for two main reasons. First, he enjoys helping communities and hospitals turn their businesses into true value-based, risk-taking entities that put resident and patient needs first. The second reason he joined Sentrics was to become part of an organization that truly lives its culture and values. While a bit cliché for some companies, Oakes believes that Sentrics is truly unique in its approach to its employees and clients, and he is proud to work with a company that makes a difference in the lives of millions of seniors and their families as well as its own team members. 

Prior to Sentrics, Oakes was the Chief Sales Officer where he helped position the company for a successful exit. Before Tract Manager, Oakes was the Chief Growth Officer at Recondo and held additional leadership roles at B.E. Smith, Wolters Kluwer Health, Craneware and Cerner where he developed his selling and management foundation. He has a BS from Pittsburg State University and has been a leader of a coaching program for the last 12 years that has helped 30-40 athletes each year achieve their dreams of becoming college athletes.
