MOBE appoints industry veteran CEO and CCO




Health outcomes company MOBE has announced the appointments of Mike Ott as Chief Executive Officer and Kurt Cegielski as Chief Commercial Officer—Health Plans.

MOBE combines data and analytics to identify individuals whose health needs are increasing while their health is not improving.

Mark Evenstad, Founder and Chairman of MOBE, said:

“As senior executives in the payer sector and in health start-up environments, Mike and Kurt align perfectly with our mission, and are poised to enable MOBE to serve even more people who are trying to get healthier—while helping reduce the financial burden on our health system, employers and society.”

Ott has more than 20 years’ experience across financial management, strategic partnerships and business innovation.

He also currently serves as a Senior Advisor–Special Government Employee in the Defense Innovation Unit.

Ott previous held roles at Optum Financial and U.S. Bank’s Wealth Management division and also served as a Military Advisor and Colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserves.

Ott said:

“I was drawn to MOBE because I believe in the impact this company can make on people’s lives, and the improvement it can make to our health system.

“MOBE has already removed over $200 million of unnecessary spend from the healthcare system—and the team has laid an incredible foundation for those who want to get healthier. Now it’s time to accelerate.”

Cegielski also has more than two decades of industry experiences, most recently at Icario, where he used behavioural research and data science to encourage people to take action for better health.

Cegielski previously founded RedBrick Health, now Virgin Pulse.

Cegielski said:

“As someone who has spent their career in the health plan sector, I know how unique, and how needed, MOBE truly is.

“ I’m excited to help payers identify members who are trying to get healthier but need more support, and engage them in a profoundly human way that lowers cost of care.”
