Zane Burke is stepping down as president of Cerner, and the North Kansas City-based health care IT company has not named a replacement for the role. The company, which is Kansas City’s largest private employer, did not offer a reason for his departure.

Burke joined Cerner in 1996 and became president in 2013.

Brent Shafer, an outside hire, joined Cerner in February as chief executive officer, following the July 2017 death of Neal Patterson, the company’s co-founder and CEO.

Shafer thanked Burke for his contributions and expressed confidence in Cerner’s remaining executives.

John Peterzalek, executive vice president of Cerner’s worldwide client relationships, assumes Burke’s responsibilities immediately and will take on the title of chief client officer.
