Oren Frank: The Motive behind the Hiring of Leibowitz as Talkspace Chief Medical Officer

Oren Frank, the Chief Executive of Talkspace, has been spearheading changes at the startup company to generate more revenue. In a recent move, the firm has hired Neil Leibowitz who resumes the roles of the chief medical officer. The hiring of Leibowitz has dual benefits – to build the business by increased sales to clients as well as dispense advice to the app’s users on suitable medicine.

According to Oren Frank, Talkspace has hit over 1 million user base after over half a decade of business. These users pay for video chat services tailored to seeking therapy services. For instance, a direct chat with a therapist goes for a weekly cost of 79 US dollars while talking with a mental health expert costs 49 US dollars. During an interview with CNBC, Frank revealed that the firm is already generating millions of dollars as profit. The New York-headquartered firm serves not only the state of New York but also global clients. These are, of course, the motive behind the hiring of Leibowitz as the enterprise needs to continue growing in revenue.

Throughout his tenure at the startup and his mission of expanding the business, Oren Frank has displayed a passion for providing therapy services. His twitter timeline reveals it all. Since joining the social platform in 2009, Oren Frank has been sharing contents and articles related to this area of medicine. Perhaps, poaching Leibowitz from such a reputable company as UnitedHealth is one of the best decisions Frank has made for Talkspace.

About Talkspace

The foundation of Talkspace dates back to 2012 when Roni Frank and Oren Frank co-founded the mobile video therapy firm. Since then, the company has grown to users now exceeding one million. These users get therapy services through therapists licensed by state and federal governments. The advisory team consists of respectable medical practitioners and scholars. For example, there is Professor Irvin Yalom (now retired from Stanford University as a Professor of Psychiatry), Dr. Andrew Sekel, and Linda Sacco who is in charge of behavioral health. The recent hire of Leibowitz is a continuation of hiring experts in their fields to provide quality therapy services.
