We first met Michael Laskoff when he was pitching his AbilTo startup back in 2009. By 2014 AbilTo was being written into hundreds of PEPM contracts for the largest insurance companies. He drove massive growth from just an idea to a series C with a 47 million dollar valuation. Now he is the CEO of a new company called Annum Health which provides heavy drinkers with a year of the most successful medical and behavioral treatments available, personalized coaching and online social support – all from home – and serves on the Board at Wellth.
Prior to AbilTo, he co-founded The Branded Asset Management Group, which helped large marketers leverage untapped profit potential in existing brands and worked in senior marketing and strategy roles at Bertlesmann, McKinsey & Co., CompUSA, as well as a number of early ecommerce businesses. His first book, Landing on the Right Side of Your Ass dealt with managing job transition, which was also the subject of his BusinessWeek online column and frequent appearances on National Public Radio.
Laskoff is a graduate of Harvard Business School and University of Chicago.
