A blend of experience in both technology and operations makes for great fit.

I was excited about Acclaris from the time I began learning about the company’s technology last fall.

Acclaris, the leading provider of consumer-driven healthcare (CDH) reimbursement technology and services, announced the appointment of veteran healthcare financial services executive, Dean Mason, to the newly created position of President. Mason will assume his duties at Acclaris on June 26, 2013.

Since 2008, Mason has served as the CEO of HSA Bank, one of the largest and most respected health savings account (HSA) custodians in the country, managing nearly 600,000 accounts and $2 billion in assets. There, he guided an operational, financial and cultural transformation that greatly accelerated the company’s growth and added enormous value to the brand.

Mason has a computer science background and started his career in software development. He spent five years at Deloitte and was central region leader of their Information Strategies service line with a focus in financial services and e-business. He has been CIO and Chief Technology Officer for Marquette Financial Companies and Senior Vice President at UniteHealth Group where he was responsible for Consumer Directed Healthcare technology and operations.

Prior to HSA Bank, Mason was CIO of Exante Financial Services (predecessor to OptumHealth Financial), and was later made COO responsible for operational stabilization of FSA, HRA, HSA, print and mail, and card production. His last three years at Exante was as President and then CEO.

Acclaris CEO, Bob Lopes said, "I am very excited about Dean’s decision to join the Acclaris team. His strong blend of experience in both technology and operations makes him a great fit for what we are about at Acclaris. His focus on metrics, analytics, project planning, and his industry reputation will enhance our ability to grow and satisfy our clients through operational excellence."

"I was excited about Acclaris from the time I began learning about the company’s technology last fall," Mason said. "When the opportunity to join the organization presented itself, I knew instantly that I wanted to be part of the Acclaris team."

Mason has a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Yale University, and holds a U.S. Patent for "Dynamic load balancing in a heterogeneous LAN environment."
