Upwell Health Appoints Patrick Grosso as Chief Financial Officer


Upwell Health, a company that makes pharmacy the central point of care for 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 Upwells 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 company achieve greater efficiencies through an upgraded technology platform, a distributed pharmacy partnership footprint, and an expanded formulary. Grosso brings more than 20 years of private and public operations experience to Upwell, including a prior position as Skullcandys vice president of strategic initiatives and corporate affairs and chief legal officer.

Patricks extensive experience in finance, legal, and operations has been a tremendous asset to Upwell, making a positive impact on our growth over the past year, said Wistner. We are excited for Patrick to continue to play an integral role as we further our mission of putting pharmacy at the center of healthcare and providing members with the medications, services, and content they need to take control of their health.

2018 was a transformational year for Upwell, and Grosso was heavily 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, Ive been inspired by the work we do on a daily basis to get members the care and resources they need to live healthier, more empowered lives, said Grosso. I cant imagine a time of more exciting, energizing market opportunity for the company, and Im honored to be a part of it.
