Houston, TX, December 10, 2018 – Vivante Health, the digestive health and disease experts and creators of the GIThrive all-in-one program for gut health and disease, announced today the hiring of Chris Piascik as manager of corporate accounts. Piascik is responsible for onboarding new business clients while helping them maximize Vivante Health’s offerings to their employees.
Piascik brings with him more than a decade of experience in account management and client services, six of which he spent in healthcare SaaS. Previously he worked at ShapeUp, Inc., in Providence, RI, leading a team of account managers. He remained with the company for two years after it was acquired by Virgin Pulse, before moving on to CVS Health in Rhode Island. Eager to work with a healthcare start-up again, Piascik joined Vivante in September 2018.
“It’s great to have Chris join us. I’m glad we were able to pry him away from CVS. He brings a lot of hands-on client experience and has that special touch. It’s just what we need when we are dealing with such complex and life-changing conditions for our clients and members to feel comfortable. Chris does that,” said Dr. Kimon Angelides, Vivante Health President and CEO.
The company culture drew Piascik to Vivante. “When choosing an employer, it is important that I work for a company with a mission I believe in and that the entire company rallies around,” he said. “From my first interaction with Vivante and each one since, it is clear that the objective of every employee is to help as many people with their digestive health as possible. That’s the type of place I want to be.”
With offices in Houston, Nashville, and Athens, Greece, Vivante Health’s global team of experts in digestive disease, microbiome science, clinical care, medicine and technology came together to build the GIThrive platform. It is the first comprehensive program that brings together, in one virtual healthcare hub, all the necessary tools, including instant, on-demand support from a human care team, to effectively manage chronic digestive symptoms.
