Censinet, the third-party risk management company for healthcare providers, today announced that Stan Nowak, Vice President of Consumer Experience at Aetna, a CVS Health Company, has officially joined its Board of Directors to aid in the company’s growth strategy and go-to-market initiatives. The appointment comes months after Censinet launched and announced its $7.8M Series A funding round co-led by HLM Venture Partners and Cedars-Sinai with participation from seed round investors Schooner Capital, LRVHealth and Excelerate Health Ventures.
“A previous founder/CEO with broad technology, healthcare and leadership experiences, Stan brings a unique perspective and voice to Censinet’s board,” said Ed Gaudet, founder and CEO of Censinet. “I’m looking forward to working with Stan as we hone our growth and go-to-market strategies.”
Nowak joins Censinet’s board with almost two decades of experience in the healthcare industry. In his role at Aetna, he is responsible for transforming the consumer experience. Prior to joining Aetna, Nowak was the Founder and CEO of Silverlink Communications, a healthcare consumer engagement company that helped guide consumers towards better health through multi-channel communication campaigns. Silverlink was acquired in 2015.
Nowak’s 30 year career includes leadership roles in the international energy industry, and the technology industry. Stan received a master’s degree from Harvard Business School and a bachelor’s degree from Harvard College.
“I am thrilled to join Censinet’s Board of Directors,” said Nowak. “I’ve witnessed first-hand the repercussions associated with inadequate third-party vendor assessments including breaches to patient data, regulatory fines and disruption to patient care. I look forward to helping guide this innovative company that is working to systematically improve this process.”
