John Léger

Chief Operating Officer
Imago Systems, Inc.

John Léger’s experience spans more than 35 years spent nearly exclusively in the home healthcare medical supply and services channel, on a direct-to-consumer basis, in Michigan, Ohio, and Florida, initially working with Foster Medical and its acquired businesses. His career began at a time when caring for family members and providing post hospital healthcare at home was in its infancy. Key products offered through Foster included life supporting oxygen therapy and respiratory home care supplies, infusion therapy and nutritional support, as well as a full complement of sick room/rehabilitation equipment. In these communities John helped to develop and support the melding of the clinical home care team with lay professionals, delivering clinically excellent products and services to benefit the patient, family, third party payer, and the overall healthcare systems.

Serving Foster Medical’s Home Healthcare Division as Regional VP in early 1984, and after supporting acquisition consolidation of two regional suppliers in Michigan and Ohio, John relocated to Florida to lead a network of intake and distribution locations for statewide service, with revenue growth from $6M to over $30M in three years. As the VP-Area GM, John was responsible for all business disciplines, including Sales, Operations, Clinical, and Budget.
After 12 years with Foster Medical, John moved on to work with a Ft. Lauderdale-based Home Health Agency-DME-Infusion Pharmacy business serving SE Florida. Two years later, in 1991, John joined Mark Libratore at Liberty Medical Supply and took on overall operations management. After Boston-based PolyMedica acquired Liberty, John became Sr. VP of Operations, supporting sales growth to approximately $600M as Liberty became the nation’s largest and most recognized direct-to-consumer diabetes testing supplies company. Liberty continued to dominate that space, and PBM giant Medco acquired Liberty. Altogether, John worked 13 years with Liberty Medical.

After a brief non-compete period, John rejoined Liberty Medical founder, Mark Libratore, as SVP of Operations at Liberator Medical Supply, with product focus on urological catheters, ostomy supplies and accessories, diabetic testing supplies, and post-mastectomy appliances and garments. In addition to his SVP role, John became COO for Liberator Medical Holdings upon its public offering. CR Bard acquired Liberator Medical in 2016, and CR Bard was subsequently acquired by Becton Dickinson in 2017. John continued at an equivalent VP level with Liberator, ensuring organizational regulatory continuity and knowledge transfer until a mid-October of 2019 exit. After 13 years with Liberator Medical, John officially joined Imago in June 2020 as COO.

Scott Hallihan

Managing Director
PetViewDX, LLC

Scott leads the effort to apply Imago’s patented technology in the veterinary market, to help clinicians make faster, more accurate diagnoses. This involves working with veterinarians and other industry leaders to determine the right problems to solve, then designing and delivering the software solutions.



Previously, Scott worked at IBM, starting in 1988 as a software test engineer and quickly going on to hold several leadership roles, primarily in product development, product marketing, business development, and channel partner alliances. Some notable partnership deals developed by Scott while at IBM include the first self-checkout offering in 1991, implementation and delivery of IBM’s first full-screen graphical user interface adapted to older legacy equipment, and a partnership agreement with Pandora.

Scott also led the concept and implementation of IBM’s global certification program where software business partners could self-certify their solution configurations on various IBM hardware/software platforms.

Scott’s experience in bringing a product concept from idea through implementation and delivery has been a perfect fit with Imago’s entry to the veterinary market.

Scott holds a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Clemson University and an M.B.A. from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. He is the author of two patents while at IBM, one of which is used today on every mobile phone’s user interface that provides visual feedback to support accurate typing on very small keys.

John Boney

VP, Business Development
PetViewDX, LLC

John Boney has been an entrepreneur for nearly 40 years, building and guiding multiple businesses from ideation through successful operation to exit. He has significant experience in partnerships and networking, logistics, and business management.

After completing flight school, John started his own one-airplane flight school in Raleigh, North Carolina, which he built into one of the largest aviation training centers in the Southeast, adding a successful Fixed Base Operation (FBO) and being designated an Accident Prevention Counselor by the FAA.
John then saw the untapped potential of combining aviation with media sales in North Carolina. In return for receiving live air-based traffic reports, participating stations would provide drive-time radio spots that John’s sales team would sell regionally and nationally.

Utilizing his aviation network and his sales and management acumen, John added this innovative business in Raleigh and grew it into four other major markets within two years. John was eventually approached by a U.S. company to buy his growing traffic reporting company. Later, a Swiss Company bought the flight school, FBO, and aviation services.

Seeing the time was right for a real estate boom, John then partnered with a contractor to build, lease, and manage commercial buildings. He worked with architects and engineers in the design and execution of the construction while managing financing, permits, marketing, and tenant services.
John consistently takes the long view. He sees opportunities others haven’t yet detected and applies his extensive experience and vision to create win-win scenarios for customers, investors, and partners.
