Hahn has over 20 years experience in business development and relationship management with healthcare organizations. He joins WestLake Financial Group, Inc. after seven years at Press Ganey Associates, where he served as Senior Vice President of Client Management and Sales and led a team of 50 with responsibility for developing and maintaining business relationships with over 10,000 healthcare organizations, exceeding $100 million in revenue.

“I am thrilled to join WestLake Financial Group, Inc., a pioneer in benefits technology, whom I believe has a critical role to play in providing next-generation benefits solutions to rapidly evolving healthcare organizations,” said Hahn. “With so many newly integrated healthcare organizations navigating through expansive personnel changes amidst the financial pressures of sequestration, pay-for-performance initiatives, and multiple new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) mandates, healthcare leaders need solutions that will both simplify the uniquely complex issues surrounding employee benefits while keeping costs down and employees satisfied. WestLake continues to revolutionize the benefits space while cutting costs for the employer – which is key for healthcare organizations and will only increase in importance for the foreseeable future.”

Burt, CEO of WestLake Financial Group, Inc. “Most benefits technology firms treat their healthcare clients like any other business. From our earliest days, WestLake has understood the unique dynamics benefits play within healthcare organizations. By bringing an industry expert like Jason onboard, we are renewing our commitment to being the industry thought leader within the healthcare marketplace and bringing our clients a competitive edge through their benefits programs.”
