Our newest hires bring expertise from Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft.

We’re excited to welcome two new members to the executive leadership team at Blink Health. Both bring decades of experience working for some of the world’s most innovative companies and will help guide Blink as our offerings and customer base grow.

Bharath Chinamanthur is our new Executive Vice President, Engineering and Operations. Hecomes to Blink after more than 27 years of working in engineering, technology, business and operations — most recently at Charles Schwab, and Amazon prior to that. At Amazon, Bharath helped launch Amazon Business, the company’s B2B division, where he led product and engineering for the customer journey. Bharath will oversee our engineering operations and help us scale our e-commerce platform so that our product can help even more people get their medications conveniently and affordably.

“What brought me to Blink is that the company has an incredibly talented team already working on the thorniest problems in healthcare…. The opportunity to leverage 11 years of experience I had built at Amazon scaling marketplace businesses to make healthcare affordable for every American was not something I could pass up. Blink is blazing the trail when it comes to solving this problem and will continue to lead as we scale.” — Bharath

Christopher Plambeck joins Blink as our Senior Vice President, Data Sciences and Monetization. Christopher gained 20+ years of experience during his tenures at Amazon, Microsoft and Facebook. Notably, Christopher contributed his expertise to Amazon during a five-year period of high growth, and led the Marketing Science team in the Asia-Pacific region at Facebook. We know he’ll implement innovation and efficiency as we expand our digital health platform and reach even more patients.

“I was fortunate to work at both Facebook and Amazon during their formative years. At Blink I see the same opportunities to reach a very large group of people and transform their healthcare experience with a user (patient) first mission. Blink has a purposeful mission to get behind and an opportunity to use data and technology to transform a massive industry. Improving access to affordable medications will impact the lives of hundreds of millions of people.” — Christopher

Bharath and Christopher join our new Chief People Officer, Madan Nagaldinne, another veteran of Amazon and Facebook who recently joined Blink.

Our talented new team members will not only help us build a bigger and better product, their work will contribute to the greater good of improving healthcare. That is, making sure all Americans can access and afford the treatment they need. We’re thrilled to have Bharath and Christopher along on this adventure as we change healthcare for the better.
