Abraham is most energized when he is doing well by doing good. He joined Wellth because he agrees that our company is achieving a much bigger impact by serving members with chronic diseases and members from socio-economically underserved populations.  As VP of Finance & Strategy, he is focused on maximizing the long-term financial opportunities within Wellth’s value creation and delivery, while mitigating the risks of these efforts. He leads Accounting, Financial Planning and Analysis, Treasury and Investor relations at Wellth. He partners with our CEO on our fundraising efforts and works to provide leverage to the CEO. He partners with the Chief Commercial on sales projections and revenue managements, partners with Chief Product and Chief Customer Officers on the accuracy and availability of key operational metrics, the CTO to put scalable systems in place and our VP of People Operations to ensure that our team members are paid and have the appropriate benefits. 

Prior to joining Wellth, Abraham was a Manager of Treasury Capital Markets & Liquidity Management at Gogo Inc. (Gogo Business Aviation LLC.). There, he co-managed the firm’s Global Treasury Operations, and created the company’s first weekly reported 13-week cash forecast which was used extensively by the C-Suite for an accurate picture of the cash situation and burn times during the COVID-19 pandemic. He assisted on the refinancing and reduction of the company’s Senior Secured Notes from $1.2B to an $0.8B Term Loan-B facility, and reduction of annual interest payment from $110M to $40M. He reported to the Treasurer.

Prior to Gogo, he worked for the Northrop Grumman Corporation in various roles of increasing responsibilities within program financial management, strategic planning, and business management.
