UpHealth Holdings has announced the appointment of Jay Jennings, a former audit manager at Ernst and Young as its new chief accounting officer.
Jennings will join the group’s senior leadership team and lead the company’s accounting functions as it transitions to a public company.
The firm said he is a “seasoned accounting executive”, who spent more than 17 years as the principal accounting officer for publicly-traded eHealth.
In this role, Jennings was responsible for accounting operations, revenue operations, SEC reporting, technical accounting, income taxes, treasury and corporate insurance/risk management programs.
Jennings said: “I look forward to using my expertise to help the company complete its upcoming SPAC business combination and lead the accounting functions as it transitions to a public company.”
Martin Beck, CFO, for UpHealth Holdings, added: “Jay has more than 30 years of hands-on senior financial leadership in public and private technology and healthcare companies.
“His experience of growing eHealth from a VC-backed startup through an IPO, while supporting multiple acquisitions, will be instrumental in helping us continue to build UpHealth.”
