The Free Safety

Seth is the Chief Business Officer of Upward Health, responsible for a range of business services that support our clinical operations. These include client implementation and services, business analytics, marketing, risk adjustment, revenue cycle management, credentialing, and corporate development. Seth joined Upward Health in 2017 as the VP of Corporate Development and Strategy, with a focus on completing Upward Health’s acquisition of Nalari Health, standing up Upward Health’s first health plan partnership and field operations in Rhode Island.

Prior to Upward Health, Seth was a healthcare investor at Safeguard Scientifics, an early-stage venture firm focused technology companies across a range of industry verticals. At Safeguard, Seth co-led several new investments and participated on the boards of nearly 10 Safeguard healthcare technology portfolio companies.

Seth graduated magna cum laude in Economics and Political Science from Columbia University, where he was a John Jay Scholar, and earned an MBA with Dean’s Honors and Distinction in Finance and Economics from Columbia Business School. Seth serves as Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors for Gaudenzia, a provider of substance use disorder services to patients in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, and Washington, DC.

When Seth isn’t busy blocking and tackling, metaphorically of course, he is compensating for a childhood spent eating spaghetti and meatballs by cooking slightly more exotic food every weekend and can be seen pushing one of his two young children in the running stroller while reminiscing about the single marathon he completed. He also has an affinity for rap music and travel to faraway places.
