Chief product, growth, and people officers round out executive team at ‘most promising’ start-up creating tech platform for healthcare innovation
Commure, a leading health information technology (IT) company building the common architecture for tomorrow’s health ecosystem, announced it has added three executives to its executive leadership team, all with experience at major healthcare and technology companies, to fill the new roles of chief product, growth, and people officers, and also named a new member to its board of directors. Commure appointed:
- Abhijit Mitra, Chief Product and Engineering Officer – Mr. Mitra joins Commure from ServiceNow, where he was Senior Vice President and General Manager of Industry Workflows. He previously held technical leadership roles at SAP and Oracle.
- Manisha Shetty Gulati, Chief Growth Officer – Ms. Gulati previously was Chief Operating Officer at healthcare analytics company Clarify Health, and prior to that she was a Partner at McKinsey & Company, the global management consulting firm, in the healthcare practice.
- Christine Tibbits, Chief People Officer – Ms. Tibbits was part of the founding leadership team for Google Health, acting as both their Head of Human Resources (HR) and Director of Education and Engagement. She joined Google in 2007, and co-led the HR side for the corporate restructuring of Google into Alphabet.
In addition, Teresa Carlson, President and Chief Growth Officer at Splunk, a global provider of technology designed to investigate, monitor, analyze and act on data at any scale, has joined Commure’s Board of Directors.
The three new executives will serve alongside recently named Chief Health and Innovation Officer Saurabha Bhatnager, MD, who was previously at UnitedHealth Group, on Commure’s executive team. The team is led by CEO Ashwini Zenooz, MD, whom Commure appointed CEO in September from Salesforce, where she had been Chief Medical Officer.
The announcements cap a year that saw Commure double in size through both acquisition and organic growth, secure foundational customer relationships with major healthcare provider networks, and rank among CB Insights’ 2021 Digital Health 150, which showcases the 150 most promising private digital health companies in the world.
“Commure is attracting amazing talent at every level,” Ashwini Zenooz, MD, Commure’s CEO, said. “There are so many challenges left to tackle in healthcare — related to access, quality, cost, and experience — all of which stem from the industry’s underlying technology silos and data fragmentation. Commure’s goal is to drive data-driven collaboration across the ecosystem to mend disruption and replace fragmentation with innovation. We’re finding that our collaborative partnership model is not only resonating with the industry, but with prospective talent as well. Our new executives bring experience, knowledge, and skills that will help solidify Commure’s unique position and drive our growth.”
