"Karen is a seasoned financial leader who brings valuable experience building and scaling great companies," said Livongo Founder and Executive Chairman Glen Tullman. "This is another exciting step for Livongo as we add additional capability and independent directors to our Board."

"Similar to many Livongo employees and Board members, I too have loved ones who live with chronic conditions and have witnessed firsthand their struggle to navigate the current system, which is confusing, complex, and costly. Livongo's consumer-first approach is not only driving greater Member satisfaction but has also demonstrated positive clinical outcomes and measurable and meaningful cost savings, which I particularly value as a former Chief Financial Officer."
