Executive Vice President, HPC International, Inc.
Megan Lippert is the Executive Vice President of HPC, where today she leads the company’s brand marketing strategy and oversees the Publishing, Education Concierge, Librarian, Value Analysis Research and Researcher service divisions. Megan earned a B.A. in International Relations from Alliant International University and her MBA from Missouri Baptist University. “HPC is unlike any company I’ve ever worked for before. At HPC, we try never to say ‘no, we can’t do that.’ Over the years, we’ve gotten to where we are because we’ve remained open to new ideas and new ways of doing things. Somehow, some way, we always find a way to create a solution or develop a new service to meet our customers’ ever evolving needs. I think that’s why our customers remain so loyal to us.”
In the Publishing Division, Megan has directed the publication of several new Hilton Publishing titles since joining the company in 2013, including the revised 4th and 5th Editions of Hope & Destiny: The Patient and Parent’s Guide to Sickle Cell Disease and Sickle Cell Trait; the new Hope & Destiny Jr. Learning Guide and Workbook; the Sickle Cell Superheroes children’s book; Going the Distance: The Making of a National Health Disparities Research Enterprise; Fighting Lupus Battles part 1 and part 2; Sickle What?; Living Well with Sickle Cell; a book about small fiber neuropathy called Small Nerves, Big Problems; Frank Lloyd Wright’s $10,000 Home; and the biographical civics books for teens about the late Judy Baar Topinka, Just Judy. “Publishing these new books, especially those for children and patients, is one way we continue to make our positive footprint on the world. Medicine is rapidly changing, and so are the challenges of growing up and just being a little kid. It’s my sincerest hope that the books we put out in the world can help people to make sense of these changes and be inspired and encouraged by those who have walked in the same difficult footsteps before them.”
