Resilience Lab hires WeWork Vet to boost its growth
New York-based hybrid mental health provider Resilience Lab has added three high-level leaders to its leadership team.
On Wednesday, Resilience Lab announced that it has hired Patrick Morselli as chief operating officer, John Hamby as general manager, and Alyssa Lin as chief growth officer.
Hiring is essential to the company’s expansion strategy. All three have experience working with high-flying, fast-growing startups, according to the release.
Founded in 2019 as a hyper-local therapy provider based in the New York borough, the company has focused on providing in-person and telehealth services for psychiatry and psychotherapy in multiple states.
Morselli previously worked at WeWork Inc. (NYSE: WE) as head of global expansion. He oversaw WeWork’s growth from a company operating in five markets to more than 200 markets and growth in valuation from $300 million to $10 billion in less than three years.
In his new role, he will oversee strategic operations and adopt growth plans.
“Patrick, John and Alyssa bring a remarkable combination of strategy, growth and leadership experience to Resilience Lab, and will be instrumental as we continue to provide even more people with access to mental health care across the country. “, Marc Goldberg, co-founder and CEO of Resilience Lab, said in the press release.
The company has also promoted existing managers Stephen O’Beirne to vice president of payer and business, Michele Moorman to vice president of people and Alisa Hausmann to assistant director of billing.
Hamby will oversee day-to-day operations while Lin will oversee talent acquisition and ensure scaling actions are appropriate, the statement said.
Hamby previously worked as executive director of the nonprofit Phoenix Community Alliance. He was also a regional leader in Arizona for hospitality startup OYO and transportation startup Uber. He led the regional launch of the latter and worked as the regional manager of community engagement.
Lin immediately worked as COO for New York-based company MarketSmiths Content Strategists. From April 2017 to August 2020, she served as Director of Portfolio Strategy for Airbnb.
“Resilience Lab has experienced a period of phenomenal growth as the company continues to scale and provide greater access to mental health care,” Morselli said in the release. “I look forward to deploying my experience to help drive the next stage of its expansion.”
In April, the company announced that it would expand into the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Data retained by Mental Health America finds that these states have one of the highest prevalences of mental illness in the nation.
Last month, Resilience Lab added Pennsylvania and Massachusetts to its footprint. Resilience Lab employs more than 250 people, 200 of whom are vendors, Goldberg told BHB in a previous interview.
Resilience Lab aims to get a head start on hiring during the mental health provider shortage through academic partnerships and the creation of its own accredited continuing education entity called the Resilience Institute.
On Monday, BHB reported that Connecticut-based Aware Recovery care had also made hiring at its C suite.
