West Shell, Chairman and CEO, Healthline
Running Healthline, which is a health destination search engine and content site, an advertising network, and an enterprise software company probably interferes with West’s career as a kayaker, skier and fly fisherman. In the last couple of years Healthline added Yahoo! to its list of customers like Aetna, Ask.com, US News & World Report, UnitedHealth Group and GE, and has been building even more complex online products. They don’t seem to have spent much of that money they raised last year so we hope today that West talks about his bigger plans for the future.
West is interviewed by Zina Moukheiber, Forbes. Zina does some of the best writing anywhere both on new health care technology companies and on corrupt middle eastern dictators and other related billionaires.
