Artera (formerly WELL Health), a SaaS digital health leader in patient communications, has recently expanded its executive team with several internal promotions and one new hire. This updated leadership team was created to support Artera’s success as the healthcare and technology markets continue to evolve.
“One of our core values at Artera is ‘pursue growth’—our team is always striving to learn and grow as individuals and in their careers. While many companies grow from the outside, we have an incredible bench of talent from within and take great pride in that,” said Guillaume de Zwirek, CEO & Founder, Artera. “This particular group of individuals exemplifies the best in Artera and has consistently delivered for our team, our customers, and most importantly for patients. On top of that, the addition of a new VP of People will help us continue to bolster the growth and development of our team even further.”
