Since undergoing an executive reorganization in June of 2018 that included the appointment of Kevin Lyman as Chief Executive Officer, Anthony Upton as Chief Medical Officer, and Michael Sistenich as Chairman of the Board, Enlitic has experienced unprecedented growth that includes the following achievements:
- In April, Enlitic announced that it had completed its Series B funding with a $15 million raise.
