Mountain View, Calif., Jul. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Enterprise health benefits platform Jiff, Inc. announced today that it is expanding its team with four new executives. Joining Jiff are: Eric Flyckt, Vice President of Informatics; Johnathan Hodge, Executive Vice President of Product; and John Kemmerer, Vice President of Finance. Rachel Sherman, who was one of Jiff’s earliest employees, is being promoted to Vice President of Customer Success & Operations. These executives bring decades of combined experience in product development, finance, and healthcare at analytics and data-driven companies. The announcement comes on the heels of a $23.5 million Series C funding round last month, and continues Jiff’s remarkable momentum.

"Analytics are at the core of what we do. We’re excited to welcome industry veterans with a strong background in analytics and data-driven offerings to our product, finance, and informatics teams. Our enterprise health benefits platform offers managers data-driven insights into what programs improve health and save money, and allows them to adjust benefits or incentives with the click of a button," said Derek Newell, CEO of Jiff.  "These new members of our executive team will help Jiff better serve our rapidly-expanding customer base."

Johnathan Hodge brings more than ten years of analytics-related product management to Jiff. His experience across the industry – at large enterprises, like IBM, and startups, like Adaytum and Merced Systems – will help Jiff continue to expand current products and build new offerings with the highest standards of execution. As Executive Vice President of Product, Johnathan will oversee all Jiff product and engineering teams.

Dr. Eric Flyckt has spent his career focused on the intersection of analytics, healthcare, and technology. Previously, he led product management at Explorys, creating data-driven tools to improve clinical quality management and care coordination. Before that, Eric spent seven years in McKinsey & Co.’s healthcare practice, addressing strategic and operational issues with health systems, payers, and life science companies, as well as leading analytics and product management for McKinsey’s Objective Health. As Vice President of Informatics, Eric will improve and enhance the analytics capabilities of Jiff’s data-driven enterprise health benefits platform.

John Kemmerer joins Jiff with over 20 years of experience leading the financial organizations of fast-growing companies including Odwalla, Merced Systems, Delphix, and Crittercism. As Vice President of Finance, John will be responsible for all financial functions at Jiff and will manage Jiff’s finance and legal teams.

Rachel Sherman is taking on an expanded role as VP of Customer Success & Operations.  In the past two years, Rachel has overseen the launch and management of all of Jiff’s customers, achieving zero customer churn. Jiff’s customer team provides best-in-class service and manages Jiff’s implementations.
