SAN FRANCISCO – November 12, 2013 – Castlight Health, the leader in health care transparency, today announced Michele Law has joined the company as chief revenue officer, a new position for the fast-growing organization. Michele will oversee the company’s sales, customer success and corporate marketing departments and serve as a member of the senior leadership team.
Michele brings to Castlight more than 20 years experience working with leading technology companies both as an investor and in senior management roles. Prior to Castlight, Michele was the chief operating officer at OpenDNS, where she co-founded the OpenDNS enterprise business and built the sales, business development and customer success organizations. Before OpenDNS, Michele spent seven years as a venture capital investor with Greylock Partners, where she focused on investments in the consumer internet, mobile and enterprise technology markets. Michele began her career as a hardware engineer at Sun Microsystems, specializing in the design and development of RF and digital board products for Sun’s workstation and graphic product lines. Michele received an MBA from the Harvard Business School and a B.S. in electrical engineering from Cornell University.
“We’re thrilled Michele has joined the Castlight team,” said Randy Womack, chief operating officer for Castlight Health. “She is a proven and respected leader in the tech community who will ensure our sales, customer success and marketing functions work seamlessly and scale effectively as we continue to grow. Further, she truly understands the DNA of an entrepreneurial company like Castlight. She’s a tremendous addition to an already deep management bench, and I look forward to working closely with her as we build a game-changing company.”
Castlight offers its best-of-breed health care management suite to employers as both a web and mobile application, helping employees and their dependents shop for health care based on cost and quality. Castlight is working with more than 100 of the nation’s best-known companies, such as Honeywell, ConAgra and Cummins, and earlier this year introduced innovative products, including Castlight Rewards and Castlight Pharmacy, to support employee adoption and ongoing use of the Castlight platform. Castlight also creates employer-specific employee engagement programs and offers personalized education and alerts targeted to individuals’ needs and interests. As a result, employees and their families are able to make educated health care choices, all toward the goal of high value care — and, ultimately, healthier companies and consumers.
“For years, technology has helped businesses and consumers harness Big Data to make more informed decisions, improving companies’ competitiveness and individuals’ quality of life. I am pleased to have the opportunity to join Castlight to help tackle one of the biggest challenges we face in the U.S. – fixing the health care system,” said Law. “The team at Castlight is thoughtful, nimble and utterly committed to providing ground-breaking technology that will transform how we all engage in health care. I’m honored to join them in this endeavor.”
