people with chronic conditions, today announced that it has strengthened
its leadership team with the appointment of Patrick Grosso as chief
financial officer. Grosso assumes the position of CFO after serving as
Upwell’s chief administrative officer since March 2018 and interim CFO
since November.

As CFO, Grosso will oversee all finance, accounting, legal, compliance,
procurement, and supply chain activities for Upwell Health, reporting
directly to CEO Alison Wistner. He will also be responsible for
developing strategic initiatives and financial plans that help the

continue to play an integral role as we further our mission of putting
pharmacy at the center of healthcare and providing members with the

health.”

involved in all initiatives to improve efficiencies and performance. The
company implemented a new product strategy, piloted a consultative sales
process, and launched UpwellBeing.com,
a media site filled with educational content designed to help people
take proactive steps toward healthier living.

“Chronic conditions can take a significant toll on both patients and
caregivers. Since joining Upwell, I’ve been inspired by the work we do

healthier, more empowered lives,” said Grosso. “I can’t imagine a time
of more exciting, energizing market opportunity for the company, and I’m
honored to be a part of it.”
