BELLEVUE, Wash. – January 24, 2014 – Sunny Singh, founder and CEO of Edifecs Inc., has been selected as a recipient of Seattle Business magazine’s 2014 Executive Excellence Award for exceptional leadership in the company’s mission to tackle healthcare’s biggest challenges with passion and perseverance.
