As CEO, Cory Kwarta is responsible for Swisslog Healthcare’s global business, including the strategy and execution of its Medication Management and Transport Automation business. 

Kwarta graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, earning a degree in systems engineering and then serving more than five years in the U.S. Army. At Swisslog Healthcare, he started in a field service role, moved into the corporate offices and led and supported multiple areas of the business before becoming CEO. 

During the pandemic, Kwarta led Swisslog Healthcare to year-over-year growth in North America. It was a particularly challenging time for a company tasked with delivering a critical infrastructure for healthcare facilities when those facilities had new protocols, restrictions, limitations and workforce scarcity.  

Under Kwarta’s leadership, the company maintained 98% of its U.S. team while working through the difficulties of the pandemic, and improving profitability across global product lines. 

Kwarta credits his wife for sacrificing her career to focus on family so that he could pursue his EMBA and bolster his leadership credentials as he transitioned from the military to the private sector.
