Maeve O’Meara Named Chief Executive Officer; Siobhan Nolan Mangini Named President.
Castlight Health, Inc. (NYSE: CSLT) today announced that Maeve O’Meara has been named as the company’s CEO and to a seat on its Board of Directors, and that Siobhan Nolan Mangini will serve as the company’s President and retain her position of Chief Financial Officer. Maeve and Siobhan have worked at Castlight for nine years and seven years respectively, leading a wide variety of corporate functions during their tenures. John Doyle is stepping down from his role as CEO and Director. These changes are effective immediately.
“With the appointments of Maeve as CEO and Siobhan as President, the Castlight board is recognizing the exceptional leadership that both have provided as the company has scaled, as well as the impressive bench of talent Castlight has developed over the years,” said Judith Verhave, former Global Head of Compensation and Benefits for BNY Mellon and member of the Castlight Board of Directors. “Maeve and Siobhan have the vision and experience that Castlight needs to drive the company to the next chapter of growth.”
Maeve O’Meara joined Castlight nearly a decade ago, after working as an investor with Highland Capital Partners and as a consultant with Bain & Company. Early in her tenure, Maeve served as the product lead for Castlight’s transparency and personalization solutions, which drove Castlight’s early market success. In the years since, she has played a prominent role as Castlight has scaled: creating deep relationships with employer customers, overseeing product development and delivery, fostering a deep talent pool, building Castlight’s relationship with Anthem, and developing an influential voice in the industry. She has held leadership roles in Product Management, Customer Experience, Business Development, Product Design, and Product Marketing, and most recently served as Executive Vice President of Product and Customer Experience.
“Maeve is a talented leader, with deep healthcare and technology expertise,” said Rajeev Ronanki, Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Officer at Anthem. “She has been essential to Anthem’s relationship with Castlight, and we look forward to working with her in this new capacity.”
“Maeve is a product visionary and a force for good in employer health benefits,” said Shawn Leavitt, Senior Vice President, Total Rewards at Comcast. “As a longtime customer, I have always felt like I could count on her to champion Comcast’s needs. I am excited to see her take the reins at Castlight.”
In her role as Executive Vice President of Product and Customer Experience, Maeve managed all customer-facing functions, and oversaw the build and launch of Castlight’s two new solutions: Castlight Complete, its comprehensive navigation platform for large employers, and Engage, its health plan platform. Castlight’s technology now serves approximately 260 customers and improves the health experience for approximately 20 million members. Maeve serves on the National Business Group on Health Cost Institute, and was named one of Employee Benefits News’ Top Digital Innovators this year.
“Through her work with NBGH and her work on our Cost Institute, Maeve has been an invaluable partner to employers seeking to address rising health costs and improve the employee healthcare experience,” said Brian Marcotte, President and CEO of the National Business Group on Health. “She is a true thought leader who consistently strives to push the industry forward.”
Maeve O’Meara commented: “Since its founding, Castlight has never wavered from its mission to improve the health experience of the millions of people we serve. Together with our employer customers, health plan partners, and ecosystem partners, we have an incredible opportunity to raise the bar in our continued pursuit of this mission. I am honored and humbled to be asked to lead this dedicated team as we embark on the next phase.”
For the past three years, Siobhan Nolan Mangini has served as Castlight’s Chief Financial Officer. She has increased the company’s investment in critical customer and research and development initiatives while driving Castlight towards sustainability. Siobhan first joined the company seven years ago in strategy and business development, after working as a consultant with Bain & Company and as an investor at the Kaiser Family Foundation. She has held a variety of roles at Castlight and has focused on driving operational excellence and cross-functional collaboration while leading the finance, investor relations, accounting, real estate, and business operations functions. As President, Siobhan’s expanded duties will include oversight of the daily management of the organization.
