“We are pleased and excited to be able to have Myong Lee at the helm who aligns with our vision and values to better serve and empower the needs of physicians and their patients,” said Dr. Richard Park, Executive Chairperson of the SMG board and co-founder of private equity group Ascend Partners. “Myong has the long-term vision and cultural understanding necessary to lead the transformation of SMG with innovation, compassion and care.”

Like Dr. Park, Myong is a son of first-generation immigrants from South Korea who witnessed the challenges his parents faced navigating the healthcare system with limited English proficiency. “I founded Clever Care with a culturally customized approach, because nothing should ever get in the way of receiving the quality healthcare that we all deserve,” said Myong. “I will bring that same tenacity and commitment to SMG, advocating for physicians and their patients, armed with a vision for advancements and growth to better support our underserved communities.”

Myong is well suited for this task. In addition to Clever Care, he has assisted some of the most innovative companies in healthcare, such as agilon health and Clover Health, with building and scaling their businesses. In addition, he has advised many VC and PE fund portfolio companies on charting their path for growth and implementing value-based care.
