Family benefits company Cleo announced the appointment of Karin Ajmani to its board of directors yesterday. She joins Cleo’s Board amid marked growth for the company as employers seek out inclusive and holistic benefits for their vulnerable working parent populations that have been adversely impacted by the pandemic.
The challenges facing working parents this year have created a groundswell of demand among employers and employees alike for inclusive family benefits and services. Cleo has experienced rapid growth this year with companies large and small adopting benefits to help working parents thrive both in and out of the workplace, and navigate the many challenges brought forth by COVID-19. Today, Cleo is offered by companies like Pinterest, Reddit and Box and touches around 640,000 lives via its top four largest employers.
Karin Ajmani is a 25-year healthcare veteran who has held various leadership positions at companies dedicated to democratizing access to vital health services. She joins Cleo at this crucial point in the company’s growth journey as this new and emerging field of family benefits gains steam in the market. Most recently, Karin was the President and Chief Strategy Officer of Progyny, a national infertility health benefits company based in New York, where she was responsible for driving the company to over $150M in revenue.
“Karin is a highly experienced, forward-looking healthcare leader and we are thrilled to welcome her to Cleo’s Board,” said Sarahjane Sacchetti, CEO of Cleo. “Our mission to support working families has become even more critical this year, and Karin is an incredible asset as we enter new markets and bring our services to even more employers across the country.”
“I’m passionate about working with early-stage companies doing important work to improve healthcare and help employers provide innovative care, and Cleo – as a fast growing family benefits platform – was at the top of my list,” said Karin. “I’m delighted to join Cleo’s Board at this vital moment in time when working parents need their support services now more than ever.”
