INDIANAPOLIS (June 5, 2017) – OurHealth, a leading provider of employer-based on-site and near-site clinics, today announces the hiring of Shelly Towns as executive vice president of marketing.
In her new role, Towns will be responsible for developing and implementing a compelling marketing strategy that will propel brand awareness, increase customer acquisition and deepen engagement.
Towns brings a strong background in senior leadership to OurHealth with experience in marketing, product management, analytics and strategic planning. She spent 12 years at Angie’s List, rising from staff writer while the company was a start-up to her most recent position as senior vice president of product where she was responsible for a $300 million product portfolio for the publicly-traded tech company.
“Healthcare is an active space with big problems to solve, and OurHealth is uniquely positioned to become the market leader for employer-based clinics,” said Towns. “Ben and Jeff have built an impressive business and an even more impressive team. I’m excited to continue my career in Indianapolis, and I can’t wait to get started.”
“Shelly has been an impactful member of the local business and tech community and has had an impressive career with Angie’s List” said Ben Evans, CEO and co-founder of OurHealth. “We feel confident that her experience will be integral in leading OurHealth’s growth as we hire nearly 500 new employees and expand our services to new markets.”
Towns’ hiring announcement follows OurHealth’s recent funding raise of $37 million, aimed to accelerate the delivery of better, more affordable healthcare. Funding will be used to expand its MyClinic network into eight new markets, develop 11 new MyClinics in Indianapolis and Charlotte, N.C., and invest in sales, marketing, technology and data security as well as launch a direct-to-consumer healthcare experience.
Founded by Ben Evans and Dr. Jeff Wells, OurHealth addresses a growing problem in the healthcare delivery system: a lack of access and unaffordable cost escalation for employees and employers. Headquartered in Indianapolis, OurHealth recently expanded into North Carolina to align with Charlotte’s business landscape that continues to attract progressive companies.
