Donato J. Tramuto

Donato J. Tramoto

Founder

Donato J. Tramuto, is the former CEO of Tivity Health , Inc., (Nasdaq: TVTY), and is widely recognized for his commitment to social change and transformational leadership in healthcare innovation that led the New York Times to deem him “a global health activist.”

Tramuto is also the founder and chair of The Tramuto Foundation which advances young people’s rights to education and healthcare access and combats human right violations. He launched the foundation in memory his two friends and their 3 year old son who lost their lives on 9/11 when United Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower. Tramuto was scheudled to be on that flight, however and due to a toothache, he never boarded the plane. Since the launch of the foundation, over 100 young adults have received a Tramuto Foundation Scholarship to pursue their dream of a College Education and many organizations have received financial and partnership support helping them deliver on their promise to make the world a more equitable place.

His three-decade commitment to social change and innovation has earned numerous awards, including the pretsigious Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope and the RFK Embracing His Legacy Awards . Tramuto currently serves as a member of the board of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights and is chairman of its Leadership Council where his foundation has committed to funding a three-year, $1 million grant to address workplace bullying, leading a national initiative to address workplace dignity and inclusion in the U.S. and Europe.

Tramuto is a passionate champion of cutting-edge approaches to healthcare access, drug safety, and addressing the social determinants of health (SDOH), defined by the World Health Organization as the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. Under his tenure as CEO of Tivity Health and following his execution of a successful turnaround, he transformed the business business model to center around partnering progressively, profitably and collaboratively with consumers, payers, healthcare practitioners and employers in cutting-edge approaches to SDOH conditions including nutrition, fitness and social connection, that improve health outcomes and reduce medical costs.

Before joining Tivity Health, Tramuto’s record of bringing together social commitment with healthcare innovation included his founding of Physicians Interactive Holdings (Aptus Health sold to WebMD in 2019), a global provider of insight-driven digital engagement solutions for healthcare professionals and consumers. Reflecting a conviction that universal healthcare is a basic human right for all people, he launched Health eVillages in 2011, a non-profit organization providing state-of-the-art mobile health technology in the most challenging clinical environments and working to broaden healthcare access.

Tramuto is a member of the Brown University Healthcare Leadership Board, as well as the boards of directors of the Boston University School of Public Health, the Livongo Health Foundation, Sharecare, Inc., GoCheck Kids, as well as a member of the Gryphon Investment Executive Advisory Board. He is the mastermind behind a groundbreaking 360° public service campaign and annual summit addressing challenges unique to older adults, including the too-often overlooked issues of isolation and loneliness.

A proponent of lifeling learning, Tramuto holds honorary doctorates from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, Thomas Jefferson University, Lasell College and Saint Joseph’s College, and is the author of Life’s Bulldozer Moments: How Adversity Leads to Success in Life and Business now available in the U.S. and Italy.

Sharon Purcell

Sharon Purcell

Chief Of Staff
Nura Health

Sharon Purcell has had a 25-year career in sales, marketing, business development and operations, working for both Fortune 100 organizations and early-stage healthcare companies. She has held leadership roles across multiple industries and has a strong track record of driving business transformation and growth in highly competitive markets.
Purcell has built business models and initiatives from the ground up and has breathed new life into failing or stalled initiatives leading to explosive growth. She is a 15-year veteran of GE, where she excelled at client needs assessment, relationship management, and strategic partnerships. Purcell worked under the leadership of Jack Welch, whose mission was to build a strong company by developing leaders with well-rounded business acumen and experience in multiple functional areas. Welch also encouraged cross-pollination to different GE P&Ls, resulting in Purcell’s diverse industry DNA. As Six Sigma & LEAN were core GE values, Purcell leveraged her certifications in these quality methodologies to create process improvement strategies for her clients and teams, increasing productivity and profitability.

While at GE, Purcell led Welch’s “Boundaryless” Cross-Sell Initiative across all GE P&Ls, managing a team of 5,000 sales reps to develop bundled customer solutions. She partnered with GE CEOs and brokered relationships with industry leaders and management to create a mainstream sales initiative that resulted in 700 new business contracts and $1 billion of incremental revenue in a single year. Purcell’s public speaking strengths accelerated rapid advancement of the initiative as she presented the Corporate Strategic Vision at companywide meetings across the nation.

In addition to her primary responsibilities at GE, she co-founded the GE Women’s Network, a business organization with the mission of fostering the professional development of female talent to attract, advance and retain successful women throughout the company. As a leader in the Network for ten years she helped fuel its growth, expanding the organization to 50,000 members globally. When she left the company, GE had reached the point where female leaders were responsible for generating $50 billion in revenue. She is enormously proud to have been part of such ground-breaking women’s empowerment.

Purcell believes this work was a vital stepping stone in the path of using her voice to change lives and make communities stronger. Her love of people and passion for leadership led her down a path of diverse career opportunities, many of which pointed her toward her “calling” to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives. Her expertise lies not only in her ability to translate company vision into compelling, values-based messaging, but also as an inspiring storyteller. Over the past decade, she discovered that her gifts as a compassionate leader and passionate public speaker and storyteller all stem from her primary gift as a healer. Purcell has since dedicated her focus to healthcare, the industry where she believes her voice can play a role in leading impactful change in the world.

Currently, Purcell is Chief of Staff for Nura Health, where she collaborates with a team of healthcare leaders working tirelessly to solve one of humanity’s most crippling challenges: healthcare. Nura Health is a healthcare informatics company that, by relentlessly pursuing wisdom through data, applies smart systems thinking to reveal what works, transforms lives and saves money. Purcell is committed to improving health outcomes, lowering healthcare costs, and enhancing the vitality of people and communities. She views the state of “wellness” as inclusive of an individual’s rich connectedness to themselves and their communities, and continues to pursue opportunities to encourage, motivate and inspire connectedness in the lives of all she encounters.

In addition to her leadership at Nura Health, she is the President of the Seattle Chapter of 4word, a global organization committed to connecting, leading and supporting women in the workplace to achieve their highest potential with confidence.

Anand Singh

Anand Singh

Head of Strategic Partnerships
HOVER Inc.

Backed by 14 years of core global supply chain experience, Anand currently works for the Netherlands-based multinational Royal Philips as Director Global Commodities/Procurement Strategy. Since joining Royal Philips in 2013, Anand has been responsible for leading and developing the fast-growing healthcare operations of Philips globally.

Prior to joining Royal Philips, Anand had been actively engaged in developing supply chain strategy and logistics solutions for large and small companies in the consumer-packaged goods and automotive sectors.

Anand has also volunteered for social welfare organizations in India. During his volunteer experience, he traveled extensively through rural India working on projects on child education, nutrition and women’s health. From the above experiences, he came to realize that discipline and perfection are not dependent on education or technology. The education, technical expertise and economic prosperity of the more fortunate people like us, are only a tool to reach these young men and women in the most challenging environment and to show them the way to a better life.

Today, working for a global healthcare company, Royal Philips, he has come closer to the reality that corporate social responsibility plays a pivotal role defining the true objectives of any company, big or small. He personally would like to see Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) more as Corporate Social Accountability (CSA), rather than as a responsibility that a healthcare organization might find itself forced to fulfill. Accountability encompasses responsibility and requires a broader outlook to doing business.

Anand holds an MBA degree from Case Western Reserve University and an Executive Master’s in Healthcare and Leadership from Brown University. Anand serves in the Case Western Reserve University Alumni Board as Student Development Chair.
