PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) August 14, 2018
Picwell, Inc., provider of the most advanced predictive decision support engine for consumer and employee health plan selection, has hired Joshua Daltry as the company’s new Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Picwell’s tools are currently used by 150 partners including employers, insurance carriers, brokers and benefit enrollment platforms to help 1.5 million people choose the optimal health plan for the coming year.
“At Picwell we’re changing the way health plan decisions are made through the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning and behavioral economics,” said Matthew Sydney, CEO of Picwell. “As we evolve our financial wellness capabilities, we’re thrilled to have Josh on board and look forward to leveraging his expertise in wealth management technology and SaaS platform development.”
Daltry brings more than 20 years of software product development experience to his new role at Picwell. Prior to joining the company, Daltry served as CTO for eMoney Advisor where he built and led high-performing teams that delivered an innovative wealth management SaaS platform. At eMoney, Daltry developed many of the platform’s core services, including its award-winning client experience, and led the organization through massive growth and an eventual sale to Fidelity Investments.
In his new role as CTO of Picwell, which he assumed in May 2018, Daltry will be responsible for leading Picwell's technology organization to deliver trusted and personalized benefit recommendations across channels and at scale. He will play a key role in bridging the health and wealth divide and bringing Picwell's decision support to millions of households.
"With the rise of high-deductible health plans, HSAs, and the fear of unmanageable health care costs in retirement, the line between health and wealth has blurred. Picwell sits at this intersection, helping employees and retirees plan for potential health events with actionable advice today,” said Daltry. “By leveraging the best data science, computer science, and user experience design, Picwell helps reduce the stress and complication of benefits decision-making. I’m excited to contribute to Picwell's growth and our mission to deliver trusted and personalized benefits advice at scale."
