Entrepreneur of the Year

Guillaume de Zwirek

Award Sponsor: JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Guillaume de Zwirek, CEO and founder of Artera (formerly WELL Health), started the company in 2015 with a singular mission: make healthcare No. 1 in customer service. Today, Artera is a leader in digital patient communications and a two-time Best in KLAS winner in Patient Outreach.

Artera delivers a platform-level patient communications solution that integrates across a health system’s tech stack to deliver patients a simple, cohesive communications experience while reducing workload for healthcare staff. By unifying disjointed communications and information into a single channel for patients (texting, email, and IVR), Artera fuels healthcare providers to deliver healthier patients, more efficient staff, and more profitable organizations.

Under Gui’s leadership, the Artera platform now helps more than 500 health systems facilitate 2.2 billion messages for more than 68 million patients. Artera has been recognized by Forbes as one of the nation’s Best Startup Employers (No. 10) and has appeared on Deloitte’s Tech Fast 500 and the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America lists.

Before founding WELL Health, Gui worked at Google and Graphiq.com (acquired by Amazon).

Gui graduated from the University of Southern California with bachelor’s degrees in classical guitar performance and business administration. He is a six-time Ironman athlete.
