Boston, MA – Gain Life recently announced that Dave Merrill has been named as Chief Executive Officer.
The Gain Life Board of Directors selected Merrill based on his track record of building one of the largest cost-containment businesses in the commercial insurance industry. Merrill’s penchant for building technology-driven cost containment solutions in combination with his deep industry relationships, will be key to Gain Life’s continued success.
“Gain Life’s claims automation platform solves three of the industry’s biggest challenges- alleviation of staffing issues through the automation of administrative and communication tasks, improvement of risk identification through its automated claim monitoring, and the reduction of claimant anxiety through an evidence-based application that supports them every step of their claims journey,” said Merrill. “As soon as I saw what Gain Life’s platform could do, and the results it delivers to customers, I knew this was the right opportunity for me. I can’t wait to build on the success of the team, continuing to drive cost savings for customers and a better claims experience for all parties.”
“Dave’s cost-containment expertise, passion for tech-enabled solutions, and extensive industry relationships make him the perfect fit for Gain Life’s next stage of growth”, said Sean Eldridge, Board Chair and Co-founder of Gain Life.
Dave has dedicated his 30-year career to the insurance industry. He comes to Gain Life from CoventBridge, where Dave most recently served as CEO and remains Vice Chair of the Board. Previously, Dave founded and ran The Merrill Group, which became EMSI / ICS Merrill and then merged with GlobalOptions to become CoventBridge.
Dave is the proud father of five. He is active in his church and Jacksonville community. Dave also enjoys rooting for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Boston Red Sox.
