“The mission is so inspiring – the lives that have been changed and the successful journey that Accolade has already had – that’s why I’m here.”
Mike joined Accolade in November 2015 as Chief Product Officer. His focus is on transitioning Accolade from a services company to a products and services market leader. Mike and his team of more than 200 technology professionals are responsible for the company’s innovation strategy, platform development, product and software design, clinical strategy, as well as platform and ecosystem partnerships.
Under Mike’s leadership, Accolade has developed a secure, open and scalable technology platform designed to support millions of members across the U.S.; enabled flexible design and development to respond to market needs; integrated mobile, online and telephonic applications; and leveraged an intelligent analytics engine with billions of data insights on member health, benefits engagement, provider quality, transparency and more.
Prior to Accolade, Mike was co-founder of Concur with Accolade CEO Raj Singh and Steve Singh. Mike was the founding CEO of Concur, and spent more than 20 years in various roles, including Chief Product Officer at the time of the company’s acquisition by SAP in 2014.
Before co-founding Concur, Mike helped launch the sales force automation space as part of the team that created ACT! at Contact Software/Symantec. He began his career at Apple, where he led the development efforts for MacWrite Pro, the leading word processor for the Macintosh at the time.
