Lewisville-founded Teladoc has appointed digital media expert Brian McAndrews to its board of directors.
McAndrews, who is the former CEO of digital radio pioneer Pandora, will serve on Teladoc’s audit and compensation committees.
McAndrews also sits on the board of Amplero, a company that leverages artificial intelligence marketing to grow customer bases and loyalty on behalf of its client companies. And, during his more than 25 years in the technology and digital media markets, McAndrews served as president and CEO of aQuantive Inc., a global digital marketing services company that Microsoft eventually acquired.
McAndrews’ experience will help the telehealth company further boost its artificial intelligence and technology efforts, according to Teladoc President and CEO Jason Gorevic.
“As we expand our use of data and analytics along with AI to help generate the best outcomes, Brian’s knowledge in this area will not only help us achieve technological milestones, but also to communicate that value to our members across the globe,” he said in a release.
Teladoc is a telehealth provider offering 24/7 access to virtual health care through phone, internet, and mobile apps. It was founded in 2002 in Lewisville and has since moved its headquarters to Purchase, New York.
The company serves more than 10,000 clients, including payers, providers, and employers, while more than 20 million members nationally can connect to the company’s network of more than 3,100, board-certified, state-licensed physicians and therapists who operate under proprietary telehealth guidelines.
