Dave brings a unique blended background to TempoPay. Having earned his MS in Human Resources Management from Boston University, Dave spent the first half of his career leading human capital teams for employers including the evaluation and purchase of benefits plans and wellness programs. Dissatisfied with what was being offered to support overall health, well-being and medical cost reduction, Dave followed his passion to Plus One, a provider of integrated well-being services to large employers. Following the acquisition of Plus One by Optum, Dave ultimately led that business unit for several years, transforming it to a true population health solution and more than doubling the size of the business while maintaining client retention rates in excess of 95%. For TempoPay, Dave manages strategic partnerships and employer relationships to bring TempoPay's unique solution and benefits to as many populations and lives as possible.
