Back in November of last year, I outlined plans for how Color plans to transform the way we deliver healthcare services in this country. As the next step for turning that vision into a reality, today I am delighted to announce that Ann Mather and Luis Borgen have joined Color’s Board of Directors.
Ann and Luis are joining our board alongside Hemant Taneja from General Catalyst, Sue Wagner, the co-founder of BlackRock and current Apple board member, my co-founder Elad Gil and myself. Luis will serve as the Audit Chair and Ann is joining as an independent board member.
As Color pushes forward in our vision to make healthcare accessible where your life happens, expanding the Color Board helps us add additional strategic thinking to help us unlock more healthcare services through our model. Ann and Luis both come from different industries, but both believe that increasing access to healthcare is one of the most pressing issues in our country today.
Ann brings a wealth of business acumen and experience in financial oversight to our Board of Directors, with a track record of guiding some of the most innovative companies in recent history. She is Chair of the Audit Committees for Alphabet and Netflix, was Chief Financial Officer at Pixar from 1999 to 2004, and has held executive leadership positions at Village Roadshow Pictures and The Walt Disney Company.
Ann joins Luis, who most recently served as the CFO of athenahealth, and will be bringing all of his experience in leading an innovative digital health company to our board. He has over two decades of experience as a senior finance leader in both public and private companies, including CFO at healthcare services provider DaVita, Inc and Vistaprint. He also sits on the board of directors for Synopsys, Carter’s, and Eastern Bankshares.
I am thrilled to have their guidance and counsel as we continue to think about how to make healthcare services — especially relatively low-cost, essential services — widely accessible and accountable in a way that today’s system is simply not equipped to deliver.
