Neil Leibowitz is the chief medical officer at Talkspace, a six-year-old company dedicated to connecting people in need of talk therapy and traditional mental health counseling services – cognitive behavioral therapy, for example – to licensed counselors and therapists through tech devices like smartphones, tablets, and computers. Mr. Leibowitz, hired by Talkspace’s CEO and co-founder Oren Frank, most recently was employed by the United States-based health insurance provider giant UnitedHealth, also known as UnitedHealth Group, as a senior medical director.
Financial analysts and market experts believe that Talkspace is gearing up towards an initial public offering (IPO) and that bringing an experienced, well-tenured administrator in the healthcare industry would unarguably bring reputability to Talkspace’s corporate ladder. Mr. Neil Leibowitz has been given the title of chief medical officer by Oren Frank; Mr. Leibowitz and Mr. Frank have been working closely together since the former was brought on board by the latter in April 2018. After one fiscal quarter’s worth of the brilliant minds mulling together, Talkspace has made more progress towards its ability to open up with an IPO and scale larger so that the communication platform can be brought to more currently-struggling people – both individuals within the United States who have diagnosed mental health disorders and their counterparts who are similarly stressed, though typically not in a chronic capacity – around the nation.
Oren Frank is a solid chief executive to follow – just look at his Twitter page!
Some people purposefully put on facades or shells of themselves to display to the world to make others think more highly of them. Take a look at Oren Frank’s personal Twitter account at @orenfrank – it isn’t hard to tell that Mr. Frank is a man who’s concerned with mental health issues across the nation whose serious demeanor towards such problems is offset by poking light-hearted jokes at issues like politics.
Mr. Oren Frank recently retweeted fellow Twitter user Ben Yelin’s (@byelin) tweet of “Sir, this is a Wendy’s drive-thru” in response to Donald Trump’s recent all-caps tirade to Hassan Rouhani, the president of Iran.
