DALLAS, Sept. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Viverae®, a leader in workplace wellness technology, is proud to announce the addition of two new strategic sales managers—Romy Carlson, MBA and Tim McGill CLU, CEBS—to their growing team of experienced wellness professionals. The industry veterans will be responsible for building relationships and developing new business opportunities with benefits brokerage and consulting firms throughout the United States. Continuing their distinguished careers and drawing on firsthand knowledge of the health and wellness industry's evolution, their contributions will bolster Viverae's clinical expertise and provide impactful solutions to clients.
With a career that parallels the evolution of modern-day wellness, Carlson's 17 years of wellness experience brings a unique perspective to the Viverae team. She began developing strategic corporate sales plans for the Life Time Fitness health club chain before transitioning to nutrition and weight loss, managing relationships with multi-million dollar accounts for companies like Weight Watchers and Retrofit. Witnessing the impact of technology on wellness, Carlson began creating broader, high-impact population health engagement strategies for Cerner and Humana.
With an understanding that true health starts with prevention and ends with clinical care, Carlson transitioned to community-based programs with a holistic approach to wellness, including financial security, emotional well-being, and vocational purpose. "The wellness industry has to develop bigger and broader thinkers who don't just rely on technology to achieve effective engagement," said Carlson. "I've seen a lot of smart technology solutions, but they don't dial into the things that make the most impact, like prevention and clinical care."
As an accomplished veteran of the benefits and insurance industry, McGill brings 36 years of extensive knowledge in managed healthcare solutions. In 1993, McGill served as the president of the Colorado Group Insurance Association, and was integral in developing market-based legislative healthcare reform. He previously spent 23 years at Mutual of Omaha Insurance, growing sales across multiple product lines, including health, dental, life, short-term disability, and long-term disability. Most recently, McGill spent 13 years at Colonial Life Insurance, achieving $75 million regional sales in 2016.
Throughout his career, McGill has seen the evolution of PPOs and EPOs, and believes clinical support is the only way to truly affect health outcomes. "Companies often struggle to improve employee health, and routinely fail to bend the healthcare cost curve," said McGill. "In order to fundamentally change attitudes about wellness, employers must address the root of the problem with awareness, personalization, and true clinical support."
Ultimately, Viverae clients will benefit from the addition of these industry veterans to the team. "Employers are quickly recognizing that the convergence of technology and service has the potential to deliver impactful results," said Mike Lamb, Viverae president and chief executive officer. "These two talented and accomplished additions have experienced every facet of wellness, and have a firsthand knowledge of which trends and innovations will improve the effectiveness of corporate well-being programs."
With 14 years of expertise designing successful workplace wellness programs, Viverae serves more than 600 clients and 1.2 million members throughout the United States. Its wellness platform can be accessed anywhere internet access is available.
