GEMELLI BIOTECH LEADERSHIP TEAM
I strongly believe that great work and great brands are born when culture, sound strategy and timely execution meet. Focusing on these three pillars has led to incredible success. Over the past twenty years in the pharmaceutical industry, I’ve launched and grown three billion dollar brands, won numerous awards for innovative marketing initiatives, and built and led highly engaged teams committed to success but grounded in ethical decision making.
I received my MBA from Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina and my B.S. degree in public affairs from Indiana University. I’m married to Morgan (Sykora) Mitcho and have three children: Gray, Mary Wynn and Hayes.

I’m always grateful for opportunities to break down barriers and help people understand each other.
I’m a storyteller interested in compelling people to build sincere connections with each other and with their own selves. I’ve often found myself serving as a bridge between two cultures. Whether bringing together engineering teams and media agencies at Google or building the connective infrastructure between sales and operations teams at The Honest Company, I’m always grateful for chances to break down barriers and help people understand each other.
I also love building and leading teams, something I’ve been fortunate to do as a producer of feature films, television shows and branded entertainment. I'm also an Eagle Scout with a deep affection for the outdoors but a terribly underdeveloped wilderness survival skillset (I should have paid more attention).
Vice President of Market Access
I believe in win-win scenarios between patients and the Managed Care Industry.
Successful delivery of healthcare is not a zero-sum game. I believe in win-win scenarios between patients and the Managed Care Industry.
For the past 20 years I’ve provided value-based healthcare solutions for physicians and health plans that emphasize both the clinical benefit for the patient and the economic benefit for the payer. I’ve established contracts that create affordable access to therapies for patients and shift treatment paradigms for both the clinician and the health plan.
I live in San Diego with my beautiful wife, Lindsay. We spend our days hiking or at the beach, as most San Diegans do.
We live in an increasingly finite world, but that only makes our mission to provide the best, most affordable healthcare more important.
Vice President of Finance and Analytics
I enjoy working in cross cultural teams who work in an ethical manner to achieve common objectives.
My definition of success in life is not defined by the things you own or by the money you make. It’s defined by the connections you make with others as well as your internal connections with yourself. Being there for others, understanding yours and others’ needs, while incorporating a sense of mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and awareness leads to a self-fulfilling and happy life.
I enjoy working in cross cultural teams who work in an ethical manner to achieve common objectives. Do things the “Right” way!. Create a motivating environment where team members’ ideas are shared and welcomed, and, most importantly, listened to. Integrating these ideas, along with an optimal equilibrium mix of pragmatism, empathy, compassion, and constructive feedback leads to sound, executable business strategy, ultimately resulting in business success.
Director of Marketing Operations
My life’s aspiration has been to provide individuals with the opportunity to share their stories.
My life’s aspiration has been to provide individuals with the opportunity to share their stories, their lived experiences, and their perspectives with the world. As we each find our voice and share our narrative, together, we forge a greater sense of understanding and compassion. Gemelli’s patient-centered approach to healing truly demonstrates a mindful observance of the experiences and voices of the individuals that it seeks to treat, and I could not be more honored to take part in this shared journey towards greater awareness, empathy, and well-being.
Along with my work at Gemelli, I am the co-owner of Fanbase Press, an Eisner Award-nominated publishing company that seeks to produce new and distinctive works that give voice to the themes, ideals, and people that make “geekdom” so exceptional.
Director of Customer Service
Through all of life’s ups and downs, I’ve learned that listening and being there is one of the great things that you can do for someone.
Through all of life’s ups and downs, I’ve learned that listening and being there is one of the great things that you can do for someone. The briefest of interactions can have such an enormous impact on someone, so I try to make the most out of every one that I have.
In today’s day and age, there are multiple options for everything that you do, and I truly believe that a great customer experience makes your product stand out above the rest. I have spent my career working directly with customers and clients, whether face to face or over the telephone, and know how important it is for both parties to leave the interaction feeling like it was worth it.
The frustration of looking for an answer to a medical issue can be extremely upsetting, especially the longer it drags on. Through personal experience with either myself or caring for the ones closest to me, I know how important it is to find the answer to what is ailing you. With Gemelli, we are able to help patients get the answer they have been searching for.
