Trella Health, the leading source of provider performance insight and analytics, has brought two new members to their leadership team: Mike McCloskey as the Chief Financial Officer and LeighAnn Gawel as the Head of People Operations. Expanding the Trella team with these two critical roles will allow for future company growth, both internally and for customers and partners.

Mike McCloskey began his career in sales and IT before transitioning to finance.

With interest in the entrepreneurial world, McCloskey transitioned his career path to early-stage companies, first in fintech and, more recently, health IT. Mike’s passion and most significant accomplishments include bringing new products to market, managing high growth initiatives, and overall contributions as a member of high-performing teams. At Trella Health, his primary focus will be supporting the rapid growth of the company’s best-in-class healthcare analytics product offerings.

LeighAnn Gawel has primarily worked in the technology, healthcare, and SaaS industry, and has a passion for small to mid-size organizations. She was previously the People Resources Manager at Medecision, where she worked for five and a half years. Her primary responsibilities were aligning talent strategies with the business objectives and enhancing employee programs. Her recent accomplishments include leading performance and development management practices, redesigning onboarding programs, and leading acquisition integration and engagement efforts. At Trella, her primary focus will be to develop the Trella team, enhance the culture, and support the HR operations to impact the employee experience.

“We are thrilled to be adding these highly respected and dedicated leaders to the Trella team. Mike and LeighAnn have proven track records of success in their previous roles and will be incredible assets for our organization as we continue to expand and grow.”
